The idea was not that all speakers/panelists have to be confirmed. We 
hoped that people could submit proposals for workshops in terms of 
themes and partners.
I am sure the deadline can be extended. I will send a request to the MAG 
list if that is what you want. But I hope you see the problem: after we 
got the proposals for workshops the MAG needs some time to discuss them 
and create some structure, etc.
How much extra time would you propose?
