Call for Presenters open – BuzzConf BuzzConf

Call for Presenters open

Get your proposals in today!

There’s a brand new conference coming up later this year and we’re looking for inspiring and enthusiastic people to help shape the event.

We’re looking for presenters for this year’s BuzzConf technology festival (14-15 November 2015, Ballan, VIC). You can propose as many presentations as you like. We have space for sessions, tutorials, hands-on workshops with keyboard or soldering iron (or both!), hacks and mini-confs!

What’s it all about?

BuzzConf is a technology festival for passionate futurists who are looking to discover and play with new ideas and technology. If you’d like to be involved in sharing your knowledge and skills then we’d like to invite you to get in touch with your presentation ideas.

Speakers attend the festival for free! Camping is also included for those involved, and accommodation can be upgraded to cabins or units. Travel arrangements are up to you, although we may be able to help in some special cases.

The Call for Presenters closes at midnight at the end of Friday the 12th of June 2015, but you only have to get your abstract in at this stage, after that you’ve got quite a bit of time to prep your talk or workshop!

What makes BuzzConf different?

Unlike some traditional conferences, all participants, from keynote speakers to junior developer delegates, will have the opportunity to mingle, share ideas and learn from each other. This gives delegates an opportunity to collaborate with leading industry experts that have real working insight into the opportunities that will shape Australia’s future as an intellectual powerhouse. The event is held in a festival environment which will create a relaxed atmosphere to encourage open and lively discussion where everyone is immersed in a culture of creativity that will challenge how people think.

Who will be there?

One of the best things about BuzzConf is that it attracts all sorts of people. You will be taught in seminars by top entrepreneurs, have the opportunity to workshop with leading robotics experts and computer programmers, and even run your own events. What’s more, this a family-friendly event so there will lots of other activities on site to keep children and partners entertained so bring them along for a great fun-filled educational weekend.
