Take part in our Call for Submissions! To submit your session idea, please register by our website and submit a new session form for each idea. A detailed description can be found below. The more precise and complete the information you submit, the easier for us to select your session.

What information do you need from me?
We need information concerning your session idea including the topic, a brief description of the content, format (long or short talk), experience level, as well as some personal information.

What are the selection criteria?
Selection criteria include: the quality and completeness of your proposal and how well your proposed session fits into the program.

How do I know if my session has been selected?
We will let you know a few weeks after the Call for Papers has been closed.

When does the content of my session need to be ready?
It is sufficient if your session is finalized on the day of your talk. We do not need your finished presentation beforehand. However, your submitted abstract will be published online in order to give visitors an idea of the expected content of your session. Due to that, your abstract is promotion for your own talk at the same time. We recommend on formulating your submission in an informal but informative way.
