Comments: A Fistful of Pennies...

The WEC was badly under-advertised and the deadline was too short. I did have some draft papers one of which I might have completed into a publishable and presentable article, but when I learned about WEC, the deadline was already over.
I know of other people who simply counldn't cope with the short deadline of WEC.

I totally agree, I'm often burnt by deadlines. When we ran EFCE we changed the formula and held the deadline until the last minute before the conference ended! The last hour was always a rump session, which anyone could enter, and anyone coming up with a proposal that was good a few days before hand would have got an open ear.

I fear the hard academic model isn't migrating with the times...
