Decoupled Days 2020: Call for Papers
Thank you for your interest in proposing a session for Decoupled Days, the only conference dedicated to the future of content management systems and CMS architectures! We can't do this without your content, so we appreciate the time and effort you spend in crafting every proposal.

This call for papers is for the third edition of Decoupled Days at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City on July 22–23, 2020. We're looking for 25- and 50-minute sessions which deal with topics in the following five tracks:

_____

• The Traditional CMS track will cover the use of Drupal and WordPress as a content service and the range of architectures in decoupled Drupal and headless WordPress. Topics include Drupal web services (e.g. JSON:API and GraphQL in Drupal, WP-API and GraphQL in WordPress), recommended architectures and frameworks, techniques, and the surrounding decoupled Drupal and headless WordPress ecosystems (e.g. Contenta, WPGraphQL).

• The Headless CMS track will cover decoupled and headless CMS technologies. Topics include web services (e.g. GraphQL), proprietary headless CMS (Contentful, Prismic, GraphCMS), and other decoupled or headless CMS architectures. For Drupal and WordPress topics, see the Decoupled Drupal track.

• The JavaScript and JAMstack track will cover modern JavaScript and its use in decoupled CMS architectures. Topics include universal JavaScript, server-side rendering, Node.js and ES2015 techniques, frameworks and libraries (e.g. Angular, Ember, React, Vue), static site generators (e.g. Gatsby, Gridsome, Hugo), JAMstack architectures and hosting (e.g. Netlify), and JavaScript modernization efforts in Drupal.

• The People and Community track will cover the personal and community dimensions of decoupled CMS, including issues of inclusion, accessibility, and mental health. Topics include diversity and inclusion, accessibility, culture and ethics, governance, codes of conduct, and event organizing. Other topics include health and well-being, personal and professional growth, and empathy and communication.

• The Business/CXO track will cover decoupled CMS in the business, consultancy, and client landscape. Topics include case studies of successful implementations, buyer personas, sales and marketing in decoupled CMS, building and scaling your decoupled CMS business, agency and consultancy operations, client and stakeholder decision-making, and business strategy and innovation.
