DDD Perth 2019

event date

03 Aug 2019


Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre Perth, Australia


Our goal

We want to encourage people that wouldn't normally speak at conferences to give it a go!

Hot tips

Make the Session title and Session description really shine -  along with the format, level and tags they are the only fields that will be shown for anonymous voting by the public. All other values are only seen by organisers (apart from your bio which is shown on the agenda if your talk is chosen). Note: we are asking a number of optional demographic questions to allow us to report on our efforts to promote diversity of submissions.

If you need help with your title or description reach out to get a mentor or attend our abstract writing workshop.

We've found some great advice for presenting at:

Still not convinced?

Email us to get a mentor - we have a bunch of experienced speakers who are happy to have a confidential chat with you to run through any ideas you have or give safe and constructive feedback.

Before submitting a presentation please consider the following:  

  • We have an enforced code of conduct to ensure a friendly atmosphere.
  • We have anonymous presentation voting; we will only show the title, abstract and tags of a talk to voters to remove unconscious bias.
  • You will likely be speaking to an audience of between 50-150 people.
  • You are welcome to submit a talk with a co-presenter or as a team.
  • You are welcome to submit at most 3 unique talks (i.e. each one in a different topic/category)
  • We have 2 presentation sizes you can choose from: 20 minutes (roughly 15 minutes of speaking) and 45 minutes (roughly 40 minutes of speaking).
  • Presentations are not a sales presentation although you are welcome to have a slide or two about yourself and your company.
  • You will probably have internet access, but you should have a backup plan in case it's unavailable.
  • We will open voting about 2 months prior to the event. If your presentation gets voted in and you agree to present, then this is a serious commitment.
  • You are welcome to submit up to 3 presentations, if you have multiple presentations that are voted in then we will only select one to be on the agenda.
