We had sixteen papers submitted to the Second International Workshop on Software Research and Climate Change, which is great news. You can see them all here: http://www.cs.toronto.edu/wsrcc/Papers.html

As an experiment we’re trying out an open review process for the workshop. Bear in mind that this is an experiment – I’ve no idea whether this will work, and please let me know if you encounter problems, either technical or philosophical.

Our first attempt to do this used scribd, but we quickly discovered that scribd couldn’t support the reviewing process (in particular because the ‘scribbles’ field only allows for very short comments). So instead, we’ll try this as a blog. This also gives us the opportunity to keep the blog going as a way of continuing the conversation.

I suggest we use the comment thread for this post as a meta-level discussion about organisational issues.
