We are accepting proposals until 31st August 2022. Please consider our recommendations below as you make session proposals. Submitted sessions will be shortlisted and we will reach out to selected speakers by 15th September 2022.
Selected speakers will be invited to present the papers at AzConf, October 20- 21’ 2022. Details regarding the final agenda, schedule, pre-event practice dates, etc., will be shared with the selected speakers.
Recommendations for session proposals:

  • Preferably submit advanced/expert talks (levels 300-400) sharing your in-depth subject understanding and/or detailed technical overview of the product/technology features. If proposing basic/ intermediate talks (levels 100-200) that cover the concepts, functions, features, or benefits of the technology, we recommend focusing on currently released or upcoming technologies.
  • Keep your target audience in mind. Write a descriptive, fun, and enticing title that will instantly connect with the audience.
  • Plan to make a presentation that is new, unique, or significantly refreshed from previous presentation(s)
  • Focus on a solution-oriented approach. Audiences are keen to see you dive into an interesting problem and then discuss your solution. Kindly refrain from marketing/sales-related content in your presentations.
  • Share your past speaking experiences, if any (session recordings etc.) under Notes.
  • Include live demo(s) for technical sessions; historically, sessions with strong demos have received higher audience engagement.

Also, the AzConf organizers reserve the right to select specific sessions based on other criteria or preferences, as needed.
