We are looking for speakers near and far to come to Scotland's Data community conference. (NOTE: Data:Scotland is an in-person event) 

Sessions can cover all aspects of data, be that DBA, BI, Data Warehousing, Machine Learning, Data Science, Automation, DevOps, OpenData, and everything in between. We also welcome soft skills sessions to help attendees realise their potential. Let us hear your ideas!

We want to hear from new speakers and veterans alike. Whatever level you are at, you will be given the best Scottish welcome!

What's a new speaker

We would expect new speakers to have never spoken at a conference before. Small user groups, or internal company sessions are fine. We want to make sure the right people are getting the support and welcome to the data community that they deserve ♥

Choose the New Speaker session format where you'll be paired with a mentor and given the support to help you take the leap.

Precon (1st September)

We are running a precon day this year for full day workshops. Please choose the appropriate session length during submission.

Precon tickets expected to be £250 per attendee. Speakers will receive 50% of proceeds from tickets.

NOTE: Session submissions for precon ideas will close on the 4th March

Speaker Scholarship

We want to encourage speakers from across the world to share knowledge and learn from others and we recognise that the costs of conferences and speaking can be enough of a barrier to stop people from participating. We have been raising money for our Speaker Scholarship Programme to help with these costs. Just check the box on the session submission if you wish to apply for our Speaker Scholarship and we will be in touch. NOTE: This is intended for speakers who would not normally be able to afford travel and accommodation expenses. Please don't waste our time
