No problems with the email part. But regarding the interface
I have a few suggestions.

1. Duration - Since we accept only 30/45 mins talk, why note make this
a drop down with only these 2 choices ?
2. I had added "Description" in the CFP for detailed outline for reviewers
plus notes. It is not possible to review a proposal with just a summary
which we say should not be more than 100 words. This is required
in the interface.
3. Can we have a "topic" category which lists the main topics I have
in the CFP which the user can select then ?
4. Does it make sense to generate a unique ID for a talk that is
submitted ?

I am most concerned about (2), others are fine in the current form.
I cannot review a talk with the information the current UI provides.
