What are we looking for?


Talks

We believe that the best talks are the ones that our audience can use in their work after the conference. We particularly favor talks that either contain practical takeaways for the audience or take the form of a story that can inspire our attendees or help them avoid common mistakes. We are aiming to have a balance of topics!


Workshops

We're open to all kinds of ideas, especially ones we haven't thought of!


Technical workshops tend to be more popular, but we welcome all topics! Workshops can be targeted at any experience level; be sure to indicate what you expect your students to know already or have experience within your proposal!
