We prefer sessions that can appeal to our diverse audience.

We prefer sessions based on personal experience and learnings.

Proposals


We are looking for proposals in these formats:

  • Full Featured sessions (30 minutes)       

    Full feature are frontal presentations of roughly 30 minutes.

         

  • Postmortems (15 minutes)       

    Analysis of an incident or an outage at your company.

           
    Consider these questions as you outline your session: What happened? How did it affect your systems? How did you react?

    How was the problem mitigated? How did you analyze the incident? What were you takeaways? What was the followup process?

           
    Please make sure your company agrees to share the experience and to dive into details. Make this session professional and avoid personal criticism.

        

  • Lightning Sessions (5 minutes)

    Lightning sessions are speedy 5 min sessions.

    They are presented in a series in which each presenter has exactly 20 slides, 15 sec per slide, slides are auto advanced. There are no breaks between lightning sessions.

    It's fun, it's speedy, it's concise and it's breathtaking :-)

           

  • Open Source in Israel (10 minutes)       

    We are especially interested in open source projects made in Israel or created by Israelis. We seek first hand developer’s experience.

   

First time submitting? No problem.

   

We encourage anyone and everyone to consider submitting a session. You should be able to speak in front of a large audience and you should have an interesting story to tell, based on your professional experience.

The moderators team will be happy to assist new speakers in turning an idea into submission, and to pair, followup and mentor once a proposal is accepted.

      

Submission guidelines

  

  • Avoid sales, marketing pitches, or self promotion.

  • The conference is held in Hebrew, and sessions should be delivered in Hebrew. If a speaker does not speak the language, the session will be presented in English.

  • A speaker may submit up to three (3) proposals.

  • A session may be presented by up to two speakers. All speakers must be indicated on submission.

  • Assuming your session is accepted, our moderators will be in continuous contact with you, and follow up on your progress. Your cooperation is expected and may be required.

    Not being able to cooperate or respond in a timely manner may endanger your participance.    

  • You will be requested to participate in at least one dry run session. Your presentation at the conference may depend on that dry run. In our experience, speakers consider the dry run as beneficial to their presentation and personal preparation.

            

To get a sense of successful submissions, please consider our previous conferences content:


Review process

   

  • Once the Call for Papers closes, our moderation team will begin reviewing proposals.     

  • Reviewing is not anonymous.

  • As opposed to previous years. This year we will NOT hold a public vote to measure demand and interest.  (Sorry for that, we don't have a good enough technology to support it)

  • Moderators may contact submitters for questions & clarifications.

  • At the end of the proposal selection process, and before schedule is published, all submitters will be notified on their proposal status.

  • A few speakers may be contacted to agree to have their session waitlisted, so that they can be scheduled in case of another session’s last moment cancellation.
