In order to provide the widest possible range of panelists and topics to Connections 2019 attendees, Connections is seeking proposals for presentations from all interested parties.
There are several potential formats for presentations:
- Panels are a series (usually 3) of presentations followed by a single audience Q&A session for all presenters. Presentation topics within a given panel do not need to be closely related, though they will be grouped by the conference organizers thematically to the greatest degree possible. An individual panel presentation is typically about 20 minutes of speaking time, plus time at the end of each panel for Q&A. Panel presentations make up the large majority of the presentations at Connections. We will group selected presentations into panels, but if you have a concept for a panel you would like to propose, complete with potential speakers, please submit your ideas below as well.
- Tutorials (also referred to as Seminars) are presentations, often combined with hands on application opportunities, that occur on the first day and provide instruction on tools, techniques, and methodology of wargaming. Tutorial blocks are typically one hour long.
- Special Presentations are stand-alone presentations potentially given during lunch or a time block focused on a specific topic and include a limited Q&A period. The number of Special Presentations is very limited.
For each presentation you would like to propose, please submit a separate form.
NOTE: Connections does not require that a conference paper accompany each presentation, but in the interest of creating a lasting record of the presentations delivered at Connections, we do ask that speakers provide a summary of their talk, either in a separate prose document or in the form of speaker's notes accompanying their slide deck (if any). It is NOT necessary to have your presentation ready in that level of detail to submit this form.
Please contact Tim Wilkie at email@example.com with any questions or concerns.
