ITCamp 2020 - Call for Content
In the past weeks, the ITCamp team has been closely monitoring the developing global situation with regards to COVID-19, and we've been continuously reviewing the guidance provided by international organizations, government institutions, and local authorities, as well as timeline estimates on the pandemic and the impact it might have on large-scale events. As you know, a great number of events have already been canceled all over the world, and there’s probably more to come in the next few weeks.
While the original dates (June 4-5) might still end up being safe for hosting an event the size of ITCamp, the current global situation is currently affecting a lot of the logistics behind our event which should be occurring at this time (final sponsor/partner discussions, reserving speaker flights), as well as potential risks as we get closer to the event itself (e.g. event size limits still in effect, flight travel restrictions).
This is why, in an attempt to ensure the health and safety of our attendees and speakers, as well as to make sure we are able to deliver the level of quality people have come to expect from ITCamp, we’ve made the decision to push this year’s edition to October 8-9. Thank you very much for your patience and understanding. Stay safe!
This year, like in the past years, we would like to give a chance to other IT community people out there (from both Romania and abroad) to attend our conference as speakers. So, if you want to have your own session and speak to a highly experienced IT audience, then this is your chance!
Topics, Submissions & Deadline
The call for speakers ends on May 31st.
We accept sessions on any of the following topics:
All submitted sessions will be rated and ordered based on their final score/rating. Selected speakers will be invited to attend this year’s ITCamp event on June 4th-5th.
Travel and accommodations will be covered for all selected speakers not based in Cluj-Napoca (Romania).
Tips for a winning submission
Before submitting your session, you might want to consider the target audience you’ll be talking to, as well as some of the other tips we have put together for you. You can submit more than one session.
For instance, you can check out the breakdown on the technical expertise and role in the organization for the attendees from last year – this should help in positioning your content so that it is relevant for that type of an audience.
We are marking all sessions on the agenda according to their technical depth level. We will use something similar to the TechEd conference session levels (ranked 100-400), so you will be asked to evaluate or plan your target session level before submitting it.
We’re open to pretty much any technical (development, Cloud, infrastructure, security, etc.) or IT management/business topic. Feel free to check the sessions from past years if you need some inspiration.
Also, please keep the following recommendations in mind:
Please note that sessions that focus on proprietary technologies or solutions and on selling/advertising those technologies will be ignored from the start. Also, the ITCamp organizers reserve the right to select specific sessions based on other criteria or preferences, as needed.
Thank you, and good luck! :)
