Hi Greg,

I fully agree with your proposal, and wish it will not vanish in summer
holidays !
By the way, can someone explain me why we haven't announced Leipzig yet ?
Who Is supposed to do that, and does this person need access to our website

a quick proposal, to have a base for discussion :
April : LGM and final vote for next year LGM.
LGM Closure talk : announce for next year location
May : Call for submission for year + 2
September :  Call again ;)
Beginning of December : Call closure and First online selection (ask for
more details if needed), publish candidates on the LGM website
February : Second online selection (list must be reduced to 2 or 3
candidates with no unanswered responses)
April : LGM and final vote for next year LGM. And so on.

What do you think about this calendar ? Is it enough time for candidates to
prepare their LGM ?
