Unique Identifiers are managed internally and we will assign these 
before posting the proposal to the website. If the author needs help and 
sends their proposal to the given email address, then we will provide 
all the nitty gritty guidance as necessary. If the community feels that 
we should provide more details on this process, then suggestions are 
welcome. We however feel that most of the authors who choose not to 
request assistance with their proposals can follow the guidance given.
