Before sending any questions to the organizers, please read these questions and answers sections carefully. Our team works on a volunteer basis for only a few hours per week, which makes it difficult to answer numerous questions. For this reason, we created this Q&A section to help you find the answer to your questions fast. Please email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) only if it is something very important that is not found in this section of answers. However, if you need to email us a question, please note that it may take us anywhere between 4-7 days to reply.
