Talk Submissions QCon SF 2017 - Closed

QCon does not have a call for papers per se. Instead, we reach out and invite our speakers. However, we do have a process for additional speakers to submit their talk ideas.

Guidelines for speakers for QCon
The following guidelines are what our track hosts use to assess speakers and talks.

Change and Innovation
Will your talk deliver a change in how the attendees will want to work, or knowledge of an important innovation that they will be recommending on their next project or to their peers?

Content of general Interest
Your presentation should be of general of interest to a broad audience, and isn’t tied to using a specific product. Product-agnostic talks attract a larger crowd and are much better received by our attendees.

There is no formal deadline, we close the submissions once all the speaking slots have been filled out. If your presentation is selected, the Program Committee will get in touch with you. 

Please note that this is not a call for papers but a form for spontaneous applications. As a result, we will not be able to tell you definitively if your submission is accepted or denied until 2 weeks before the conference.
