Speakers must currently reside in either Luxemburg, The Netherlands or Belgium.
We're making this a locally focused event for speakers, but free to attend for anyone.
dataMinds Saturday will be a virtual event, hosted on March 13th 2021.
Most important of all, is that it will be free to attend for anyone.
With the current global situation, virtual events have been held at a very rapid pace, allowing anyone to submit to any event globally. With this approach, we hope to stimulate our local speakers to step up, and start enjoying the thrill of virtual speaking as well.
Throughout the year, and with our other events we welcome any speaker with open arms, but making sure our local talent can grow, is still one of our primary goals as a local user group in Belgium.
To conclude, a reminder that should be obvious to anyone. We believe that anyone should be able to attend our event, regardless of their race, beliefs, gender, ..
We require everyone to adhere to our Code of Conduct, and will remove anyone that doesn't do so.
The session length for all sessions is 60 minutes, in which 5 minutes are blocked for Q&A. Speakers are advised to not run over the allotted time, to allow the next speaker to prepare, and the attendees to take a small break.
The sessions will be held in 4 tracks throughout the day. Please submit your session to which of these tracks you think it's linked the most. If need be, the organisation can swap sessions to different tracks, if we deem it necessary.
Sessions can be submitted in either English, French, or Dutch. Bear in mind that English is our preferred language, to optimise our reach.
Yet, being able to present in a language you're more fluent in, can drastically lower the barrier for some people to submit.
When in doubt, don't hesitate to contact us!
