8 TIPS FOR SUBMITTING A SUCCESSFUL PROPOSAL:Help us understand why your presentation is the right one for Scylla Summit 2018. Please keep in mind that this event is made by and for deeply technical professionals. All presentations and supporting materials must be respectful and inclusive. 1. Be authentic. Your peers need original ideas with real-world scenarios, relevant examples, and knowledge transfer2. Give your proposal a simple and straightforward title3. Include as much detail about the presentation as possible4. Keep proposals free of marketing and sales5. We tend to ignore proposals submitted by PR agencies and require that we can reach the suggested participant directly. Improve the proposal’s chances of being accepted by working closely with the presenter(s) to write a jargon-free proposal that contains clear value for attendees6. The best sessions are concise and focused—overviews aren’t great in this format, the narrower your topic is, the deeper you can dive into it, giving the audience more to take home7. Explain why people will want to attend and what they’ll take away from it8. Live demos sometimes don’t go as planned, so we don’t recommend them
