Conference 2013

Call For Papers

We invite you to propose a session for this leading software development conference.

We have a long tradition of high quality sessions covering many aspects of software development, from programming languages (e.g., Java, C#, Python, Erlang, Haskell, Ruby, Groovy, C, C++, etc.), and technologies (libraries, frameworks, databases, etc.) to subjects about the wider development environment such as testing, architecture and design, development process, analysis, patterns, project management, and softer aspects such as team building, communication and leadership.

Sessions are usually tutorial-based, presentations of case studies, or interactive workshops, but we are always open to novel formats. Most sessions are 90 minutes. To encourage less experienced speakers to speak without the pressure of filling a full 90 minutes, we reserve a number of shorter 45 minute sessions.

Proposals about specific products and technologies will be taken under consideration only if they are open source and available for free (at least for non-commercial use). If you are interested in talking about a proprietary technology, there is the possibility of "sponsored sessions" which are presented outside the standard conference schedule. Please, email for more information.

Speakers running one or more full 90 minute sessions receive a special conference package including free attendance, and assistance with their travel and accommodation costs. Speakers filling a 45 minute slot qualify for free conference attendance on the day of their session.

To propose a session please email the following information.

* Title (a working title if necessary)
* Type (tutorial, case-study, workshop, etc.)
* Duration (45/90 min)
* Speaker name(s)
* Speaker biography (max 150 words)
* Description (approx 250 words)

The conference has always benefited from the strength of its programme.
Please help us make 2013 another successful event.
The Call for Papers will close on Friday 9th November 2012. Full conference schedule will be announced 1st Jan 2013.
Thank you!
