Wikimania 2016 - Notification of acceptance for "Critical Issues" submssions

Michele Lavazza

Dear all,

This is to inform you that the assessment phase for the submissions we received for our "Critical Issues" talks at Wikimania 2016 is in progress. The reviews are, however, taking more time than initially expected; the members of the Programme Committee needed some effort to get familiar with the EasyChair conference platform we are using, which, as I can testify having configured it and managed it so far, is not entirely intuitive to interact with. Needing more time to complete the reviews, we have to postpone the date of the notification of acceptance to February 1st. If you need further information, please do not hesitate to ask.

Sorry for the inconvenience to all who are affected,
Best regards,

Michele Lavazza
(Wikimania 2016 Programme Committe)

I’m always confused when people who happily use Word or Powerpoint or even Outhouse
Express find EasyChair hard to use ;-)....

Bye,
