I'm drafting a couple of submissions for sessions at Wikimania, and
(having successfully made submissions for Wikimania 2012, for
Wikimedia UK AGMs, and for other conferences) have come to the
conclusion that 300 words is too much text to require.
To be honest I always ignore this requirement. It's silly. A well-written
proposal should be concise.
I note that on 23 March, James Forrester wrote to Wikimania-l and Wikimedia-l:
"Note that a complete submission is required, including an abstract of
300 words or more that explains to the Programme Committee why you
think your proposal should be accepted over others."
