We invite all users, operators, developers, engineers and anyone else with interesting user stories around RabbitMQ to submit talks for RabbitMQ Summit 2024.

RabbitMQ Summit 2024 is a one-track in-person conference. Speaking slots are either 40 minutes, which includes a minimum 10-min Q&A or 20-minutes with 5-min Q&A.

We welcome proposals and are happy to support candidates from under-represented groups in the software development community.

The programme committee is also happy to help out with talk delivery, give early-stage feedback and get the speaker ready for the conference.


RECOMMEND US OR RECOMMEND A SPEAKER

We want to make sure our conference is as diverse as the community we represent. Do you know any researchers, programmers or experts who are a part of groups traditionally underrepresented in IT (due to gender, ethnicity or any other reason) and whose work you can recommend to our committee? Please, let them know, that our CFP is open and that we’d love to see their work! Also, you can suggest their name in the form, if you want us to check them out and possibly invite them.


IMPORTANT DATES

  • Your talk should be submitted by 23:59 BST on 16 June 2024.
  • You will be informed about the status of your submission by 31 July 2024.


THEMES & TOPICS

Join us in exploring RabbitMQ's potential! We're on the lookout for speakers who are pioneers, innovators, and industry experts ready to share their insights.

Here are some suggested topics we're excited about:

  • Mastering RabbitMQ: Delve deep into RabbitMQ's core features or its support for different protocols.
  • Applications: Share how RabbitMQ is applied in diverse fields, spanning data streaming and communication improvements, from finance and social media to IoT and cybersecurity
  • Data Pipelines and Streams: Discuss RabbitMQ's role in handling data flow.

Do you have insights or working on RabbitMQ projects? Share with us! Let's lead in messaging and tech innovation together.

Is your presentation slightly outside that scope? Amaze and inspire us with your submission!


BENEFITS FOR SPEAKERS

All speakers get:

  • conference attendance free of charge
  • an invitation to all the accompanying events (speakers’ dinner, afterparty, lunch, et cetera)
  • free beverages at the afterparty
  • other small tokens of our appreciation.
  • 15% discount code to share with your network to buy conference tickets (Very Early Bird excluded)

The programme committee is also happy to help out with talk delivery, give early-stage feedback and get the speaker ready for the conference.


SELECTION

The RabbitMQ Summit programme committee will review, rate, and select submissions based on:

  • Insights to be learned
  • Relevance and timeliness of the presentation to RabbitMQ and message queuing
  • Presenter credentials and expertise.
  • Diversity in the agenda - have we already accepted a talk on the same subject?
  • Diversity in the line-up - we want to make sure we have speakers from different communities and groups.

Your title and abstract should sell your talk to attendees and reviewers. The abstract should answer the questions: "Why should I attend this talk?" and "What will I learn?"


TIPS FOR SUBMITTING

Never spoken at conferences before and are unsure if you should, and what should you talk about? Noel Rappin has a good article on this here: https://noelrappin.com/blog/2014/01/conference-prompts-or-how-to-submit-proposals-and-influence-people/

"1. A conference that was limited to only people that really thought they were the most qualified person to talk would be depressing, if not completely horrific.

2. You are absolutely the most qualified person to tell me what you think on a particular topic.

3. This is how you become qualified. You study something, you teach it to other people."

What mistakes to avoid when submitting a talk? Noel Rappin also has an answer in this article: https://noelrappin.com/blog/2014/03/what-i-learned-from-reading-429-conference-proposals/.

In short: clearly identify your topic, be respectful of everyone, be interesting, but also self-aware, don't pitch your company, and submit early and often. We could also add to that - think if this conference audience is the right one for your talk (and why?).
