We’re getting a few questions about what’s needed for proposals, so here are a few guidelines.
All proposals should include name, institutional affiliation, email/contact information. Proposals need to indicate how long the session would be and the type of presentation (lightning talk, full presentation, panel, demo, etc).
Other loose guidelines:
Sessions shorter than 15 minutes – provide up to 100 words on what your talk would be about, what people would learn, etc.
Sessions longer than 15 minutes – provide up to 500 words on what your talk would be about, what people would learn, your normal conference abstract. Remember, these sessions will be peer reviewed, so provide enough information for the reviewers to feel compelled by your topic.
We’d like to leave the guidelines a little loose so you can tell us what we need to know this year. If we need follow up, we’ll be in touch.
