We're committed to bringing together some of the best speakers from all around the world to share their knowledge with you here. We provide a travel and accommodation package to all selected speakers to help make this possible.
Our speaker package for this year's event includes:
International speakers are encouraged to submit their ideas, but because of budget restrictions, we can only accept a limited number of speakers from outside the country.
Speakers will be provided with a projector, a microphone and a screen for their presentation (size depends on the room). Speakers should bring any equipment they need to connect to projectors. It is also suggested that you reduce your dependency on the in-house internet connection as possible. Selected speakers will be provided with the full details of the AV setup closer to the date.
When the Call for Papers closes, the organizers will sort through the submissions, making their selections. Speakers will be notified as soon as the selection process has been completed. We will contact all speakers regarding their submissions regardless of their talk being selected so don't assume that no news is bad news.
York is really easy to get to, there are direct trains from London, Manchester and other major cities. We suggest that international speakers fly into Manchester and then get the train into York.
We strongly encourage potential speakers to submit more than one submission on more than one topic. The more submissions you contribute, the more options you give us to pick you. Be sure your talk title and abstract define the exact topic you want to talk about and what you hope people will learn from the session.
