We adopted a multi-round CFP process for 2019 in an effort to encourage early submissions. This process also allows us to notify speakers sooner and make arrangements if necessary.
A few things worth mentioning… You only need to submit once. If you submit by the deadline for round 1, your CFP could be accepted at the end of round 2 or even in round 3. Don’t get discouraged if you submit day one and your talk isn’t accepted at the end of round 1!
Here are some dates to better understand when rounds begin and end. If you have any questions, please reach out to us via email or on Twitter and we’d be happy to help!
