The call for speakers closes May 31st 2020 at 11:59pm CDT (-5 GMT). Once the deadline has passed the speaker committee will begin reviewing applications. All applicants will be notified regarding the status of their talk/talks in June/July. If you submit multiple talks you will only receive one response.
Tips for Submission
We encourage potential speakers to upload more than one pitch, but no more than three submissions will be accepted from an applicant. If you choose to submit more than three, the first three will be the only pitches considered. Be sure your talk description/abstract defines the exact topic you want to talk about and what you hope people will learn from your session.
In addition, this year we are encouraging speakers to include at least one talk that would be deliverable via video – either live or prerecorded.
