The ThingMonk Call for Speakers is now open, and runs until Monday, July 31st 2017.
IOT is evolving at an incredible pace, and this years conference themes are
* Digital Twin: Bringing the physical & virtual together * Data, Analytics, Time Series and IOT: how do use, present and aggregate data at IOT scale * Machine Learning and IOT: how to use machine learning, data and IOT * Design and IOT: designing for users, their context and scale* Industrial IOT and IOT in manufacturing* IOT and Sustainability* IOT Programming Models* Full stack IOT: The power of the network, how connected devices, platforms, services and data come together
Talks are twenty minutes long, and should tell a story. No one is going to learn your API in twenty minutes at a conference, but the attendees at ThingMonk will see new and novel ways to use the technology that you are talking about that you have not even considered yet.
Q: Can I nominate someone else I'd like to hear speak? A: Definitely, we love to get suggestions
Q: I've already been asked to speak - do I need to submit a proposal? A: No need, we will definitely be chatting over the coming months
Q: I see speakers have been announced, does that mean I haven't been selected?A: No, we will confirm the final speaker list the week of August 7th, and everyone who makes a submission is up for consideration until that point.
Q: Can I do a straight product pitch?A: No, we do not allow product pitches and our audience absolutely hates them. Tell a story, it is always more interesting.
Q: Do I need to provide slides in advance?A: No, on the day is fine. We all speak at conferences and know how ideas evolve over time. Not that anyone ever edits slides just before they give a talk.
Q: I have some other questions, who do I contact?A: Drop an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or message me on twitter @fintanr.
