I note the timeline for submitting controversy papers, the minimum of 14 days for the vote, and the obvious endpoint of the Topic Committee meetings (which obviously requires the controversy to be decided enough in advance for wording papers to be developed).  My question is whether the Topic Committee has a target date for announcing which controversy papers will be on the first ballot?
Thanks to the Committee for all its work and to the community members who are writing controversy papers!

Neil,

Sorry if I missed this earlier in the other section.

The committee will release the controversy ballot within a few days of the submission deadline. It very much depends on the submissions if we can turn it around within a a day or two or if we need to take a full week.

Thanks
Gordon
