Hello all,

I will suggest each and every one of us remind and encourage people in our
circle to
submit workshop proposals as alluded by Avri. We still have some good
number of days to go and i am
sure by the close of the last submission day, we going to receive a good
number of proposals.

May be Chengetai  can give us a fair idea of how it went last year from the
very beginning the save was open
for proposals through to mid and the very last day of submission.

I dont no how many proposals have been received so far by the secretariat,
hope the secretariat will feed us with that information on our next virtual
meeting.

Cheers,
