If you want to speak, please consider that there are two formats. On Thursday we usually have half-day workshops, 4 hours each with one break, starting either 9:00 or 14:00. The workshops should provide the participants with valuable take-aways, similar to what you usually can get when attending a training, but shorter, more compressed. A good example is to get introduced to a new best practice, like the SAFe framework or trained in a special Business Analysis discipline like Solution Evaluation. The workshops have usually between 10 and 30 participants, depending on the popularity of your topic. We have two or three workshops tracks running in parallel.
Friday is the conference day where we expect around 100 participants in the keynotes and all other presentations which will all take place in the large auditorium. The keynotes are 45 min each and include a Q&A session the end. The others speakers have full 30 minutes and then move into a breakout room next door where they start a focussed Q&A session for another 30 minutes, this can even be extended – if required.
Please explain in your application in which theme track your presentation should be and why, the themes can be found on the home page and in this slide deck.
Is your topic valuable for the Business Analysis or Project Management communities? Does your presentation have a proper layout and story line? Does your presentation fit into one of the track themes?
Are you papers complete, i.e., including an abstract, your short bio, your role and your company? Please include former speaking events or publications.
Please put all your information in an e-mail and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org, we will come back to you in case of questions. You will be finally notified within 6 to 8 weeks, mostly earlier.
