CSSConf Budapest 2019 - Call for Speakers
We are inviting the Web community to submit talks for the upcoming CSSConf Budapest (September 25, 2019, Budapest).

This Call for Speakers closes on February 28th, 2019!

The Perks
If you get selected as a speaker at CSSConf Budapest, here’s what we provide:

💫 Your travel to Budapest covered.

We literally buy your plane or train ticket, plus your airport transfer, and travel around the city.

💫 Your stay in Budapest covered + and extra weekend to explore our city

In a great hotel near the venue (including free WiFi) for the days of the conferences (JS & CSS), a day before, and the weekend after. Including your SO and kids.

💫 Entrance to the conference + JSConf Budapest

If you get selected to speak and you already have a ticket, we can refund it, or you can transfer it to anyone you like.

If your employer can cover your travel and hotel, we are happy to list them as an awesome company sponsor. The money we save will be used to make the conference more fabulous.

If you have any special requirements, just let us know, we can usually work these things out.

If you want to bring a significant other, or bring your kid(s) and need child-care to be sorted out for the time of the conference, please also get in touch. We are here to make this easy for you!

We can help
Not everybody is a natural talent on stage. Not everybody can produce kick-ass slide-decks. Not everybody is a live-demo-god. Not everybody knows they have something great to talk about.

There are about a million reasons why you don’t consider yourself a speaker. We are here to prove you wrong. If all you have is a gut feeling that you should be on stage, we are here to reach out to and help you to develop or hone the skills you think you lack to deliver a great presentation.

💫 We are happy to brainstorm your interests to see if a great topic is hiding.
💫 We are happy to connect you with experienced speakers to help prepare your submission.
💫 We are happy to review and advise on how to produce a slide deck.

If you need practice giving talks, get in touch, we can hook you up with local groups.
Again, whatever else you might need, we’re here to help.

Get in touch: team@cssconfbp.rocks (just please don’t use this address to submit a proposal. you know, anonymity is important).

The Selection Process
Here’s how we pick our talks:

💫 We anonymize submissions, so we don’t bias against anything related to the submitter. No peeking!
💫 The first round of voting rates each talk on a scale from 1 to 10.
💫 The top-N (~50) submissions are rated again on a 3-point scale.
💫 Then we de-anonymize the top so we can bias against speaker details (eg. based on our budget, we might opt for a local or at least closer-by speaker).

We follow the selection process laid out by our mentors at CSSconf EU: https://blog.cssconf.eu/2015/08/15/a-talk-selection-process-explained/ and value:

💫 relevance of the topic for the CSS community,
💫 coherence and clarity of the proposal,
💫 and novelty/originality of the topic

in a submission.

Submit your proposal by February 28th 2019, 23:59:59 CEST.

💫 All talks are in English.

💫 Talks are usually 30 minutes long. There will be no Q&A after the talks - we encourage attendees and speakers to talk in the breaks, after the sessions.

💫 Make sure you care, and make sure we see you care. Typos, sloppy formatting and all-lowercase submissions make our reading of your proposal tedious.

💫 Don’t overdo it either. If you need more than two paragraphs to get to the point of your topic, we need to ask you to slim things down. With the amount of submissions we get, the quicker you can to make a good impression, the better.

💫 Original Topics. One of the things we like to do with CSSConf Budapest is to push the community forward. We can’t do this if the same people keep talking about the same things all the time. Thus, we favor original content. If you want to discuss a topic that you have talked about elsewhere, try to add a twist, or new research, or development, something unique. Of course, if your talk is plain awesome as-is, go for that :)

💫 For the level of your talk, simply assume this: the audience has infinite intelligence but zero knowledge.

All talks will be recorded and published on the internet for free, along with a recording of the slide deck, live-demo or other on-presenter-screen activity.

We do this for the benefit of the larger Web community and those who can’t make it to the conference. We hope you want to help out, but if you are in any way uncomfortable with this, let us know and we will work things out.

Finally, since you retain full ownership of your slides and recording, we’d like to ask you to make your materials and recording available under a creative commons (we default to no commercial reuse) or other open source license.
