Re: [technology-pmc] Subject: ESE 2010: 1701 - Introduction to Sapphire has been declined

Wayne, Konstantin,
I tried to answer your questions at a blog post I’ve written which you’ve seen I guess.
It is not that only long talks are short in supply, slots in general are very limited. I can understand that new projects proposals need some attention, however with the space available we cannot even cover all new projects and the existing projects in depth.
With the time and the resources available it is simply not feasible to have a detailed description for each and every talk why that specific one was or wasn’t selected. In the end the PC has to make a decision on the information available (abstract, project status, …) as well as some feeling how well accepted a talk will be by the attendees. The first part is easy (as it is based on facts) whereas the second part is pretty though and obviously reflects the opinions of the people involved.
I think in that special case it is just too early (project is still in pre-project phase) to justify a short or even a long talk (given that we are very limited on those anyway…)
