In light of community feedback requesting a more substantively focused programme, in addition to individual workshop proposal scores, the MAG's selection process this year looked at proposals' cohesion with one another under each of the three major themes for 2019: Data Governance; Digital Inclusion; and Safety, Security, Stability & Resilience. With a view to creating thematic tracks and reducing overall redundancy, the number of selected workshops was limited to approximately 20 per theme.
The selected workshops are listed below. A handful have been approved on the condition that they merge with another proposal.
All proposers, those approved, approved conditionally, and not approved, will receive in the coming days individual emails on their status, as well as further instructions if applicable.
