  1. The results have been announced, and the respective authors have been notified I suppose. Information regarding publication will be out soon..

  2. The editors of this journal are absolutely despicable. Despite seeking an extension for evaluating the abstracts and promising to send an email about the status of the abstracts to each author by the 5th of September, they have not sent any reply whatsoever as of today. They do not even have the courtesy to reply to anyone asking about the delay.
