  1. Hi I applied for it but , There are no contacts of organizers that would help one know if he or she was selected or not . For example I applied but don’t know wether I have qualified or not
    And the mechanism to let one know if one has qualified should be used to inform one who has not qualified to attend the forum .
    Thanks .
