A conference can only be as good as its content, so we count on you to build together a great BeeCon this year.
BeeCon aims to be a place for the Alfresco community to meet, share knowledge, learn, build and enrich relationships. If you would like to present your topic at BeeCon 2017 (April 26-28, Zaragoza, Spain), please submit a proposal using the form below. You can submit as many presentations as you wish by submitting this form multiple times.
Speakers of full presentations can attend the conference free of charge, and they and get a t-shirt. Speakers of lightning talks get a t-shirt too. Expenses for travel and accommodation remain a personal responsibility.
We welcome both first-time and experienced speakers. Proposals can be submitted by anyone in the Alfresco community, any Order of the Bee member or Alfresco employee. All speakers must submit their proposals using this form (well, everyone except John Newton).
The call for presentations will be open until 26th of February 2017. We will inform you of the decision of the selection committee by the 12th of March 2017. All approved speakers for full presentations (30 or 45 minutes) will receive a code for a free registration on the event. If your proposal is not approved, you can register using Early Bird rates till 19th of March.
Ideas for topics that are interesting to our audience can be found in the presentations at these similar conferences:

Guidelines for proposals:
1. Full presentations: Standard sessions are 30 minutes. Extended sessions are 45 minutes.2. Lightning Talks are 5 minutes using Ignite-style (20 slides auto-advanced every 15 seconds).2. If you propose a lightning talk, please make sure you are familiar with Ignite-style (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rRa1IPkBFbg). If your proposal is accepted, we will send you the detailed rules.3. Though most of the audience will be technical professionals, not every session should require the audience to have a technical background. We welcome case studies, use cases, strategy sessions, and sessions targeted at end users.4. Sharing knowledge and learning from each other requires open discussions. If your presentation contains proprietary software where you are not allowed to disclose information, your talk will not resonate with the target audience, which mostly prefer open source solutions.5. Presentations will likely be recorded, and the presentation materials and recording may be publicly distributed during and after the conference. By submitting a proposal, you agree to allow us to distribute your materials and you commit to only present with materials that you have the right to allow us to distribute.
