Call For Proposals Open Through May 12
The 2017 elm-conf US Call for Proposals is now open! This is when you can submit a talk for inclusion in the conference. Submit your talks at cfp.elm-conf.us.
Here’s how this is going to go down:
- From April 10 to May 12 you can submit a proposal.
- If you submit before May 8, we will give you one round of feedback on your proposal.
- We aim to have acceptance notifications sent out by June 2.
- Once we have a full schedule and alternates, we will notify everybody who didn’t make it.
Proposals will be evaluated anonymously by a small panel. We won’t see names or bios until later in the process. First time speakers, here’s your chance to shine. Seasoned veterans: bring your A-game.
We expect to have a fair number of submissions, and we only have a limited number of spots (elm-conf US is a single track conference so nobody misses a thing.) Please don’t let this keep you from applying! Last year we were able to get a great mix of veteran speakers and new voices on our stage, and we hope to repeat that this year.
Accepted speakers will receive, in addition to their speaking slot, tickets to elm-conf and Strange Loop, lodging, and travel booking. If you are coming from within the continental United States, we’ll be able to cover your travel totally. Otherwise, we will provide you a stipend of $550 for your flights.Read More
