According to an email I got from one of the LCA organisers, the speaker notification procedure has now actually begun. Here is what Mike Beattie wrote:
Hi folks, just a quick note to let you know that we’re currently in
the process of organising the presentation streams, and will begin notifying
you of the status of your submission shortly – notificatioins will be
staggered and some will be happening within the next few hours.
We do apologise for the delay in this process!
Thanks for your patience,
Well thankyou Mike for finally ending the agonising wait, and I mean this, thankyou.
The upshot of all this is that I should know in the next 48 hours or so whether any of my submissions have been accepted or not. I’ll keep you up to date as more news comes to hand.
