    Proposals Review Process

    After the Call for Proposals ends, and before the announcement of acceptance, the PyCon Taiwan 2023 Proposals Review Committee is going to review the proposals and give scores and provide feedback. The process consists of three phases:
    Stage 1 Review
    Reviewers are going to score and give feedback. This will last for about 2 to 3 weeks.
    Revise
    According to reviewers’ comments, you can revise your proposal through the dashboard. This step lasts for about 1 to 2 weeks.
    Stage 2 Review
    Reviewers are going to re-score and re-give feedback to the revised proposals.

    Revise

    Between the stage 1 and stage 2 review, you can see the feedback from the reviewer. You may revise your proposal according to reviewers’ comments or feedback. If you want to make your change obvious to the reviewers, you can point out the ID of the comment, and mention about what you’ve revised according to the comment in the “Supplementary” section, e.g. “#4: Updated the time management for xxx phase”
