Re: Seeking track co-chair nominations for Cloud Foundry EU Summit
The past selection processes have not been blind, although it is possible to ignore the columns that include the names of submitters. Not sure what the process will be this time around.
I'll note that I don't think a completely blind review and selection process is the answer. I think we'd want to encourage new speakers, who might not have as polished an abstract/title, as well as experienced speakers, for example. In addition, I think we'd want to ensure that if there are groups or perspectives that is under-represented among the submissions, that co-chairs are able to see that and can solicit/source additional talks from those groups for consideration alongside other submissions.
My 2 cents on that.

Is the talk-selection process blind? As in, can we appraise talks without knowing the identity of the speaker?
