London/UK VMUG Call for Papers
Hi, we're glad you've decided to submit a community session for an upcoming London or VMUG meeting! because we're super organised (haha) we've put this form up to allow you to submit topics for shortlisting well in advance - all we ask is that you only submit serious proposals and you can make the date - life happens, and that's cool - but please do let us know as far in advance if there is going to be an issue with something you've proposed and we can look to re-schedule you.

If you want to get an idea of the sort of things people have presented in the past, our archive of previous presentations goes back almost 9 years!! and is available here http://box.net/londonug

if you're worried you have nothing interesting to talk about - I'd argue and encourage you to read this blog post https://vinf.net/2014/11/26/lonvmug-prizes-for-community-content-aka-vfactor-london/ (note: prizes were won long ago - but the points are still valid!)

2017/18 Meeting dates are as follows

18th Jan '18 - TechUK, London
22nd March '18 - TechUK, London
14th June '18 - TechUK, London

VMUG is a voluntary organisation for VMware users, vendor sponsorship covers the actual cost of the event, as such we're not usually able to cover travel costs for speakers, but we can offer endless gratitude and recognition for your efforts and if accepted you'll be automatically entered for our annual best community presentation awards

VMware employees, sponsors and vendors are not eligible to submit community sessions unless you can clearly demonstrate that your content is independent of your company affiliation, potential sponsors should contact VMUG HQ for details (sponsors@vmug.com) - VMware staff should contact Robbie Jerrom to propose sessions internally.

It's fine to make multiple proposals, gives us more to choose from!

Any questions please feel free to nudge @vinf_net on Twitter

Thanks - the London/UK committee
