erm, this may be a dumb question, but why is the deadline being extended if you only had a 13% acceptance rate last year? fun.


Because there might be a few people that said they'd contribute but haven't gotten around to it yet. So, you extend the deadline for everyone to be fair.

Anyway, the GLS conference was really awesome last year. I had the opportunity to speak, and I had a great time. Not just because I was allowed to drink during my talk, either. ;)

Have fun,


Hehe, yes, the whiskey went well with the talk last year. Based on feedback from those who attended, the event was definitely a success. Brian's talk was a highlight.

We extended the submission deadline for several reasons, including the one Brian cites. But also, we didn't get registration open until much later than we had hoped (nearly two months late, actually) and it only made sense to push back other deadlines given that fact. So, we did.

FWIW, the conference planning committee is solely volunteer, which is a great sign as far as "community interest" goes but it can sometimes mean you just can't get everything done in the timeframe you originally hoped. Hence, extended deadlines. Alas, there are only so many hours in a day.
