A talk should be bite-sized and focused on a certain topic. This means that you should not expect to be able to cover multiple broad areas in one talk. You can submit more than one proposal, to cover a set of topics, but we cannot guarantee their final scheduled order. Therefore, we recommend topics be structured in a way so as to minimize their interdependence so that they do not need to be presented in a specific order.
We give speakers a choice to speak live or send us a pre-recorded session. We understand pre-recording your session requires extra time and extra set of skills and we are currently considering ways to make it easier for you. If you choose to pre-record your session, remember it only needs to be as good as you would do live. This is not a Hollywood movie :)
A discussion is 50 minutes long. If speakers wish to continue after the 40-minute slot, there will be a dedicated place for it. A discussion has a dedicated moderator and up to 5 active speakers.
Discussions are delivered live. We do not accept pre-recorded discussions.
We recognize that adjusting booths and meetups to the virtual environment is very challenging and we are considering steps we can take to ensure high meetup and booth traffick. We are working on a list of suggestions for virtual booths and meetups. We are open to working together with booth staff and meetup organizers in order to find the best possible solution in the virtual environment.
