The two crucial questions:

1. Did you get a page thanking you for your talk and telling you that it had 
sent you a mail?

2. Did you receive a mail? ;-)

If the answer to the first question is "no", it's possible that the talk 
submissions system didn't tell you noticeably enough about something it 
didn't like about your submission. It's obviously unfortunate that a 
misunderstanding was thereby created, but I think the talks/schedule 
organisers are happy to accept submissions that are sent again.

If the answer to the second question is "no", but was "yes" for the first 
question, it is hopefully the case that your submission has been registered, 
but someone will have to confirm this.


P.S. I did make some semi-unauthorised changes to the submissions system to 
make error messages more noticeable, but I don't have the Django "mojo" to 
start re-architecting the code, sadly.
