This is awesome! thanks for organizing it.
Is the final selection of participants purely based on getting “votes” by getting nominations or are there other factors involved in the selection process?
I ask this because I applied to participate and I am wondering if I should launch a “campaign” to get more nominations. Should I?
Cheers!

Roy,
good question! No, all the applications will be evaluated by a committee to gather a good balance of different people and perspectives for the event. It is separate from the nominations - we want to use those as a way to reach out to people who should apply and might not otherwise.

Hi!
good to know then.
And thanks again for making this happen :smiley:

It would be great to plan for easy remote participation. More environment-friendly than flying from other continents. If flying is necessary: https://offset.climateneutralnow.org/ :slight_smile:

I sent an application. I’m just curious, if my application is selected, will it really cover travel expenses considering I’m living in India at the moment and it’s rather expensive to fly out to USA…?

When can we expect responses from the applications?

Edit: I also realised that I didn’t get any confirmation email from applying and now I’m wondering if that’s normal or whether I mistyped my email ID :expressionless:

Sourya,
we did get your application. Yes it would cover that flight. We will be responding to all applicants within a week of the close of applications on August 19.

Thanks for hosting another one of these at EDP, Chris. I will be on work trip at that time but will try to participate remotely. I’ll think of some people to pass the invite on to specifically. :slight_smile:
