> that's my first message on the libre-graphics-meeting@ mailing list, so I guess a small presentation is in order: my name is Jehan. I am a contributor in various FLOSS graphics-related projects: officially one of the GIMP/babl/GEGL developers since very recently, I pushed the support backport of Wacom Intuos5 tablets into the Mageia 2 distribution (update released today!), various minor patches to various projects (libora, dvdstyler, etc.).

Not a problem.
> 2/ Your call for presentation is unclear if the times for the various talk formats include questions or not. For instance a "short talk", is it 10 minutes, with or without question time included?
OK, we'll indeed need to clarify this in the call; this time slot would include questions.
> 3/ Is there a way to know before the deadline if our talks will be likely accepted. As I will stay in Europe only for 3 months before going away for a long time, that may impact my schedule to know if I *MUST* be in Spain (= I have committed myself to a presentation and it got accepted) vs "I'd like to go there if I have time, but that's not priority if something comes up because I have no commitment".
> Note that I'd love to go there, no matter what; but as I have been away from my native country most of my time for the last 5 years, I have a lot of people to visit. Only knowing that my workshop is accepted will make me book my schedule for sure.
Unfortunately not. Since we expect more talks than we have room for, we will need to select once all proposals are in. We'll let you know as soon as we can though. Also, even if you are not presenting, the event is set up in such a way that there are many ways you can meet other developers/users!
Best and looking forward to your proposal(s),
