Dear Makane,

Thank you for asking this question for all of the MAG list.

When I worked on the workshop evaluation process last year, the group
thought that it would be important for workshop proposers who were declined
to be able to understand why they were declined.

People should know that their workshop proposals were duly considered by
MAG members and giving them feedback might help with future proposals that
they make.

So, we asked all MAG members to explain why - in a few sentences - they
scored the proposal 3 or below. This feedback should be
aggregated/synthesized and passed on to the workshop proposer by the
Secretariat, however appropriate.

It is my understanding that during the next MAG meeting, we will discuss
the threshold - that is, whether to ask MAG members to give feedback for
proposals scored 3 or lower, or 2 or lower.

Thanks again for your question and all other questions relating to the
evaluation process are heartily encouraged.

Sincerely,
Susan
