2. Whether the speech suits the audience at multiple experience levels and adds value to the conference.

3. Experience and knowledge of those proposing.

Contact & Cancel rules

Speakers are accountable for providing a valid email address and responding to the Organizing Committee or conference staff in a timely fashion. If you need to cancel for some reason, please notify the conference staff immediately, better with replacement recommendations for your particular topic. Please be aware that failure to receive a response from a speaker after three follow-up emails will result in instant exclusion from the speaker list.
