Attending Subsurface is an amazing experience, but so is speaking at the conference — it’s a great way to give back to the community, share ideas, and build your presentation skills.

We’ve opened the call for speakers (CFS) and we’re looking for members of the data lake community to share their experience and expertise building modern cloud data lakes as well as key open source technologies such as Apache Iceberg, Apache Arrow, Apache Spark and more.

If you have an interesting story to tell, whether it’s a success or a failure you learned an important lesson from, sharing your experience can have a real impact on the community.

The CFP closes November 6, 2020, but we highly encourage you to get your submission in before then.

Benefits of Submitting

Speaking at an event like Subsurface can be great for your career, the community and for your company. Here’s why:

  1. It’s good for your career. Demonstrating your presentation skills will set you apart from your peers — it means you can deliver influential talks and engage an audience. Even if you’re not actively seeking career advancement, speaking at conferences can open doors you never knew existed.
  2. It’s great for the community. By sharing your knowledge and expertise with your peers, you will help make the data lake community stronger as well as the communities surrounding projects. A stronger community means higher-quality and more innovative contributions, content and collaborations — a win-win for everyone.
  3. It benefits your company. Presenting at industry conferences like Subsurface is a fantastic way to promote your company and the great work your team is doing. It’s also useful for recruiting top talent as it provides a mechanism to showcase the innovative ways your company is leveraging cloud data lake technologies.

Of course, you’ll also receive some awesome swag, courtesy of Dremio and the other Subsurface sponsors.
