Please submit for a Session (40 min), Lightning Talk (20 min) or Workshop (80 min)

Please adhere to the following guidelines when submitting your talk to droidcon SF 2021. We cannot guarantee that if you follow these suggestions that your talk will be accepted, but you will have a much better chance:

1. Please ensure that your talk title and description match and that the title accurately reflects your topic

We all love a cute and catchy talk title with a nice play on words, but the program committee (and attendees for that matter) should be able to tell at a glance what topic your session will cover. We also ask that you be aware of our code of conduct when choosing your title. 

2. Define key takeaways and learning points

You will help the committee select your topic if you can explain what you hope audience members will learn. Please try and include three to five key points that make your talk stand out from others. (This is important because we often receive 4-5 submissions on the same topic.) The more concrete (and relevant) these learning points are to the audience/conference, the better.

3. What is your experience level with the topic?

You don’t have to be a level 12 Black Belt in Kotlin to get your talk accepted. The committee does, however, need to know what your experience level with the topics is. Is the app or technology you are working being deployed at scale? Is it a hobby or a side-project? What are your real-world experiences with the topic?

4. Have you given this talk before?

Please let us know if (and where) you have given this talk before. How was the talk received? How has it changed from the past? What new information can we expect?

5. Keywords

We have included a pre-defined list of keywords in the CFP tool. If none of them fit, please include a list of relevant keywords in your talk submission text. This will help us find your talk using a search tool when we are looking for a particular topic or technology.


Video Release Policy

All sessions will be recorded and videos will be distributed on the droidcon.com community platform. Video links will be sharable. We will integrate the transcripts of the videos so that these will be searchable on the community platform.  Anyone can access the videos for free. By submitting your session over Sessionize you are agreeing to have us record your session and publish it on droidcon.com.  Upon request, droidcon Global will provide embed links to Vimeo and/or YouTube.
