Session types

No online or recorded sessions will be accepted for this event.
This year's Go Conference 2024 will be held offline.

We have two tracks for talk sessions that includes the following types:

  • Long Sessions: 40 minutes
  • Short Sessions: 20 minutes
  • Lightning Talks: 5 minutes
  • Challenge Sessions*: 20 minutes

*Challenge Sessions are for those who meet one of the following criteria:

  • It is your first time to give a presentation about Go.
  • You are giving the talk in your non-native language (e.g. an English-speaking person presenting in Japanese or the other way around).
  • You contributed to a Go related project.

We appreciate any type of challenge--as long as you specify the reason in the notes section when submitting.

We will make a selection based on the contents of your talk proposal. As goes with the Long/Short Session speakers, the topic of Challenge Sessions needs to be about Go as well.


Most attendees’ primary language will probably be Japanese, but most can listen and understand English. We accept talks for both English and Japanese.

Selection criteria

Proposals will be reviewed based on the following selection criteria.

  • Relevance: The talk is relevant to the Go community. Go Conference is not a general software conference, our audience wants to hear about topics that relate to the Go programming language.
  • Clarity: You’ve clearly explained what you are going to talk about.
  • Correctness: You’ve demonstrated knowledge of your topic. You don’t have to be an expert, but you are expected to be speaking from experience.
  • Achievability: You’ve thought about how to present your material in the time available.
  • Impact: The goal of the talk. What new idea, technique, tool, or information will the audience leave your presentation with?

Note: The selection criteria is based on GopherCon. 


Sessions for beginners are welcome.

Please don’t criticize other programming languages or give excessive product advertisements. Please give technical talks.
