If you don’t want to present a topic, but know someone who would be a perfect fit, you can nominate them by sending their name and contact details to: email@example.com.
If you are highly interested in hearing about a particular topic, you can nominate the topic in the same way and we will do our best to find a matching speaker.
All talks will be 30 minutes long and will be held in English. If you are a first time speaker or nervous about your presentation skills, we will of course try to help with that, and if you would like, we will connect you to an experienced mentor.
The abstracts will be anonymized (names, personal information and every connection to you in your abstract will be blacked out on your submission) - only title and plain abstract will be used in the decision making process.
Deadline for submissions will be 31.05.2019 and we try to give you a feedback until the 30.06.2019

In the last year we had to go through nearly 400 proposals. It is hard for us to read endless sentences without any paragraphs or commas. We would be happy if you push a little bit of your time into formatting your proposal in logical paragraphs. This year we do not set a character limit for the talks, but we kindly ask you to slim it down to max. 3 paragraphs :)
