We encourage presentation submissions to focus on the specific impacts of technologies, rather than showcase new tools that are as yet untested. Workshop proposals should be relevant to the conference theme.
Those selected for inclusion in the conference programme will be notified no later than 24th January 2020.
Presenters will be required to register for the conference by 7th February in order to confirm their slot (the registration fee will be waived for individuals presenting).

Are you interested in paying for a guaranteed 20 minute speaking slot?
This year we are offering a limited number of guaranteed 20 minute speaking slots for a fee of $6000 USD. This means you won’t need to compete against the hundreds of other submissions we receive through the open Call for Proposals. The fee for these will go towards travel grants to help those from the Global South to attend. If you answer yes, the TICTeC team will contact you.
