Deadline: July 2nd, 11:59 pm EST. Notifications will be sent out by mid-August.
Our committee uses a standard rubric to assess and internally score all submissions. This data will not be made available to anyone outside the committee. The committee also holds multiple discussions together to talk about each of the submissions and why they are or are not a fit for the conference. We do not do “blind” assessments as we do discuss our own biases and the members of the committee work to keep each other accountable for these. All information submitted is known to all members of the committee. For more information: What talks do you want?
The main goal of the committee is to create the best possible lineup of presentations from the group that was submitted and to put on the best possible conference. Layer 8 Conference does not sell speaking slots or bundle them with sponsorship agreements.
