Dinosaur.js is now accepting proposals for talks. The conference will take place exactly one mile above sea level in the beautiful city of Denver, Colorado on June 15, 2017.
We'll be accepting talks from Sunday, January 15 2017 to Wednesday, March 15, 2017 at 11:59pm Mountain Daylight Time.
Talks will be 25-30 minutes in length with no segment for questions.
Generally speaking, the abstract is what we're likely to include on the website and in the program. This is for audience at large and includes a high-level overview of what the talk is about. This section is limited to 600 characters.
In the details section, we'd like if you'd give us a little more insight into the nitty gritty of how this talk is going to go down. This is where you might include an outline of the talk, any demonstations that you plan on doing, etc. It's worth noting that this will not be made public if your talk is accepted, which means you can adjust stuff—within reason. It also means that you can be as verbose as you'd like.
Finally, there's the pitch. In the previous sections, you told us what the talk is about. Here, we'd like to hear about why you think this talk is important. What makes you excited about this topic? Why does the audience need to hear about this?
At the end of the day, they're just text boxes: put as much or as little as you see fit in them.
You can edit your proposal after it has been submitted. In fact, that's kind of the point. Submitting early will allow us to provide feedback and work with you to improve your proposal before the deadline. Everything is considered a draft until the call for proposals closes. Not all submissions will receive feedback.
The first few rounds of the process are blind. During the blind process, we will only see the following information:
We're purposely trying to not know who you are, so please don't include any identifying information in your proposals or in any of the comments. Please respect this process.
The entire process will be blind until we have reviewed and rated every single proposal. After the call for proposals closes, we'll tally up the ratings and do our final selection based on all of the information you provided in the proposal.
If your talk is selected, you'll receive:
If you've already purchased a ticket by the time you are selected as a speaker, we'll refund your purchase completely—so, don't wait to buy a ticket. Also, if your company or employer is able to cover your travel and lodging, we'll happily list them as a sponsor on our conference and marketing materials.
