Want to offer a talk?

We're very much "Open" to suggestions for additional talks. presentations, discussion panels or technology demonstrations.

We'll be trying to fit in as many talks (and lightning presentations) as possible, so the shorter you can make yours, the better (15 minutes is good for a talk; workshops can be up to 2 hours). Alternatively, if you have an idea for a panel discussion, or a tutorial or workshop, or anything else that's vaguely in keeping with the theme of the event, then we also can't wait to hear from you. Remember, stories and experience mean your talk is more likely to be remembered.

There will be a data projector for your talk, taking standard SVGA input. We will make a laptop available with powerpoint/keynote if needed, but please let us know - if you are doing a demo, a local demo running off your own laptop is preferred to reduce complexity. We will attempt to offer an internet connection in the venue, but the wireless invariably breaks. If you absolutely need one, you must say so below. We can't offer a fee for talks, and if you require support for travel expenses, you must say so below.

We'll aim to notify everyone who's submitted a proposal by March 30th. Some talks will be accepted at various points before the closing date as the shape of the programme forms and focus emerges.

You can email the organisers at opentech @ with questions which aren't answered in the Call for participation, but please submit talks/sessions using this form (so we can find them again). We send you a copy of your submission so you see it was submitted.
