Submission Guidelines

We invite submissions that provide innovative insights, practical lessons, and engaging discussions in the context of the conference tracks.

  • Submissions should be relevant to the theme and the chosen track.
  • Submissions should be designed to fit a 45-minute time slot, including time for questions and interaction with the audience.

Provide an abstract with details including:

  • Who is your target audience?
  • What level is the session - we would like a range from beginner to deep dive.
  • What percentage of the session is demos/case studies?
  • Which of the core topics does your session cover?
  • Any specific requirements that you need to deliver the session?

  • 200 (Intermediate),

  • 400 (Expert)

New speakers

We genuinely encourage any new speaker to submit a proposal as a Newcomer. As an easy guideline, new speakers are people who have not yet spoken at a (technical) conference or larger event. User Group sessions, webinars, and client/team presentations are not considered for this categorization.

Each new speaker will be paired up with a mentor, who will provide them with highly valuable tips & tricks. Even more so, we'll provide new speakers with all the assistance they need and want whilst preparing for their debut.

Submitting as a new speaker, means you agree to meet with your buddy/mentor and collaborate on your session.

Submissions

Three submissions are allowed per speaker. Up to three co-speakers are allowed per session submission. Submitted sessions are viewable publicly on the Sessionize platform. More than one submitted session may be accepted into the conference agenda.

Session selection takes place directly after the call for speakers closes and you can expect to receive our feedback within 10 days (about 1 and a half weeks). The selection process is always hard, and sessions are weighed across roles, tags, levels, and the abstract. If you are selected, then we expect that you confirm within 3 days.

We highly recommend speakers read this blog post (and see the presentation) about writing a good session abstract. It would increase your chances of being selected and make our selection process easier.

If you have any questions feel free to send an email: to contact@balticsummit.pl
