GIC puts an extra effort on quality and achieves that with review procedure.
Please fill this form really through, reading and following the descriptions of fields. The most common problems are already listed there to avoid. The proposals that are too brief are not possible to be appropriately reviewed and have to be returned to speakers to revise and resubmit. At GIC23 this was over 50% proposals!
The crucial fields are Description, Takeaway, and Vertical slice. Please ensure that these are the following requirements, are complete, and each provides proper not repeating part of the information.
