GraphQL Conf. 2021: Call for Papers
GraphQL Conf is the global GraphQL community conference with speakers from all around the world who want to share their knowledge about GraphQL and the cool things they are building, organised by your friends from GraphCMS and commercetools.

We're excited to open the public Call for Papers (CFP) for the GraphQL Conf 2021 that's happening virtually on September 29, 2021. We are seeking a range of speakers to add to our lineup to give 15-25 minute presentations. We will continue to curate and invite speakers, but we will also feature a mix of community-generated speaking proposals.

📆 Deadline: Tuesday June 29, 2021 11:59pm PT

🗓 Decisions by: Thursday July 29, 2021 11:59pm PT

You can submit as many talk proposals as you want, with no more than 3 co-presenters.

The ideal talk is between 20-25 minutes.

Here are the main themes shaping the event:

✨ GraphQL in Production ✨
Showcasing GraphQL in action on large scale applications. GraphQL has matured incredibly over the past few years and we want to see your experience on how GraphQL is solving real-world problems and driving change.

✨ GraphQL Spec / General ✨
There's still so many fascinating opportunities for GraphQL - whether its' breaking monolithts into a layered GraphQL architecture or diving deeper into GraphQL Subscriptions - we'd all be keen to learn more on your take on the GraphQL Spec and where it's headed.
