This year's theme is “A Wide Open Web”. However, it's more of a source of inspiration than an obligation. Have fun!
Conferences and workshops each come in two formats, depending on the duration you think is the best for your proposed subject.
- 50 minutes including 10 minutes of questions
- 30 minutes including 5 minutes of questions
- 90 minutes
- 180 minutes
Always keep your audience in mind when writing your biography, the title, summary and description of your talk. Write them as if we were going to publish them as is on our website. Please use the “Specific needs” field if you need to tell the staff about anything (e.g. your flexibility regarding giving the same talk in a different format).
While we do not discriminate on your writing skills, our preselection process requires that every member of the staff read and vote on every proposition. This is an extremely time-consuming process and the more attention you put in a clear and well written presentation, the better are your chances of being selected.
Please note that we do not accept marketing or commercial presentations.
In order to provide a fair selection process, we limit the number of submissions to 5 per speaker and a maximum of 2 speakers per paper.
When you submit a proposal, it is stored as a draft that you can modify later on. You can save as many drafts as you want.
When you are ready to submit your proposal to the staff, you have to publish it. Once published, it becomes available to the staff but cannot be modified afterwards (so do not publish it if you are not finished).
Whether your proposal is selected or not, we will get back to you once we have completed our selection process.
