Program committee
Selection process

We consider submissions according to the following guidelines:

you are going to discuss things that participants of the conference find useful not only yesterday but also today and in the future. In addition, the topic of your session matches the theme of the conference, and the content you are going to present matches the stated description.
there is no need to talk about yet another Hello World (unless you think it’s a new, not widely known, but very promising technology).
there is technical novelty in your session; the content either hasn’t been published before or presents a well-known topic / problem in a different light.
Practical applicability
the content is important from a practical point of view and you not only cover the existing problems / solutions, but also share your experience.
Expertise and popularity of a speaker
you are experienced in your field of knowledge, have completed some projects etc.
If you feel like you need help to prepare your session you can count on us: we can appoint a personal curator who will review your material and organize rehearsals.
Usually, we contact applicants within a week after the submission. If that hasn’t happened feel free to contact us via email
Please don’t forget to read the speaker’s memo.
If you are submitting on behalf of another person, please fill the form using the speaker’s contact information. You can leave your contacts in the last form field (the one which asks about a co-speaker or comments).
