Please contact the Conference Committee ( with any questions.

Proposal submission deadline is 11:59 PM US Eastern Time on Thursday, 30 September 2021.

When submitting a proposal, please take the following into consideration:

- Make sure your session titles are clear and convey what the talk will be about. Session titles that are only humorous, use business jargon, or are an attempt to draw attendees are not recommended.

- Play to your strengths. Yes, you may be good at a lot of things, but what's the thing that everyone comes and asks you about all the time? Maybe you're the advocate for why UX is so important, or the expert on content operations and how it ties functions together. The specific knowledge you can share will be your advantage as a presenter.

- Focus on your audience. Of course you can talk about your experience and what you did that was amazing, but show them the steps you took and your thought process so they can apply it to their situations. What tools or processes can you share with them? What skills or understanding will they have to take the next step?
