Hi again Sebastian,
Thanks for making edits. You do not need to include the questions I posed; they are simply guides for you so that you can create a proposal that clearly outlines what you will present. We are not necessarily looking for a highly detailed description of your project; we are looking for a description of your session as it would appear in a conference program. Would you make one more attempt to edit this proposal and your second one and then I'll approve them?
Here are some examples of accepted proposals that may help you get a feel for typical conference proposals:
Thank you. Please do instruct me to edit, if it needs any more improvements to pass GEC criteria.
