Hi Leaders,

I am managing the call for papers (CFP) and call for trainers (CFT) process
for the upcoming AppSecUSA in NYC (November 18, 2013). To separate the real
talks from the noise during the submission process, I drafted a metric
system to screen submissions. Talks receiving a minimum score of <Insert
Number> will be sent to the Speaker Selection committee for review,
comments and vote. The submissions that do not reach the
predetermined threshold will be sent back to the author with guidance on
how to improve their submission.

Here is the first draft of the metrics and I welcome your feedback,
comments and criticism:
