Thanks for applying as a speaker at DevFest Pisa 2023.


There's no limit to how many submissions you can send.

We are looking for all kind of topics for sessions, but they should fall within one of the following:

  • Tech talk: a session about strictly technical matters
  • Soft talk: a session about non-strictly technical matters (we especially enjoy soft skills, inclusion, and diversity, but feel free to submit anything)
  • Workshop: usually a hands-on lab in which the speaker teaches a technology, framework or language to the audience who will be able to follow along and interactively ask questions to the speaker. We also accept "soft" workshops.

If you feel like your session doesn't fall within any of the above categories, please contact us!

We will accept talks in one of the following formats:

  • Lightning: 10+5 (Q&A) minutes session, for tech and soft talks
  • Short: 20+5 minutes session, for tech and soft talks
  • Full: 40+5 minutes session, for tech and soft talks
  • Long: 1, 2 or 3 hours session, only workshops

You will have someone in the room with you to help you with staying on schedule, but we will ask you to be mindful about the time and to always leave 5 minutes at the end for Q&A which we consider a very important part of the session.


You can decide to give your talk either in English or in Italian. Which language you use WON'T be a criterion in choosing whether to accept a session or not.

The session language will also be made explicit in the agenda, but for the sake of clarity please use session titles in the same language as the talk.

___Travel expenses___

DevFest Pisa 2023 is a FREE and LOW BUDGET community conference

We will allocate some of our budget towards accomodation for some speakers if needed, but unfortunately we won't be able to cover everyone's expenses.

If you are able to, please cover your own expenses, it really helps us pick sessions depending on their quality, rather than whether we can afford them or not.

Also, if you work for a company and they are willing to pay for your travel and accomodation, let us know and we will list them as "travel supporters" on our official website.


We are looking forward to your proposal,

Thank you for your participation by the GDG and WTM Pisa organizing team!
