Hi Lindsay, all,
Based on feedback, I think there is sufficient interest by the community to continue with the Long Tail IG. We just need to identify some priority themes and activities, so we can have a more structured discussion.
Wolfram Horstmann is leaving as co-chair so we did not submit a proposal for the P12 this time around.
However, I will be in touch with the list members to get your input about priorities for the group in the coming weeks.
Any comments or questions from others in the group are very welcome.
Best, Kathleen
