echacko (Thu, 12 Nov 2015 19:15:17 GMT): Rollback: Shoko, The Academic Editor has asked for a 1-2 sentence course description. Remember that this is what is is seen in the Bulletin and has to be short and pithy. What you have is far too long.
echacko (Tue, 22 Dec 2015 06:01:03 GMT): Rollback: Please see comments from GPAC committee revise and resubmit accordingly. They have been sent via email.
echacko (Thu, 14 Jan 2016 10:53:51 GMT): Rollback: Shoko, please change the title of the syllabus file uploaded as well as the text to reflect that you are not asking for GPAC attributes. Do this asap and I will approve today itself.
