ShmooCon 2013 FireTalks – CFP

Firetalks LogoAlthough many of the details are still being worked out we wanted to put out a quick post to announce the ShmooCon 2013 FireTalks CFP. This year we are planning on having between five and eight 15-minute speaking slots each night depending on the final discussions the ShmooCon team.

We are hoping to accommodate many of the awesome submissions that ShmooCon was not able to accept due to the finite number of speaking slots. If you are already speaking at ShmooCon, please be considerate and leave submissions open to others. Other than that … the only thing we are looking for is a nice mix of established and new speakers.

To ease our submission load, we will be using the free EasyChair Conferencing System. It just requires that you create an account, login, and select Submissions from the top menu. From there just fill out as much information as you can and hit the submission button. Beyond the required author and title fields, please include your abstract, bio, and an outline or additional information about your submission in the Abstract text area. Do not try to upload a paper as the system seems to be having some issues with that feature. Guess you get what you pay for. 😉

Here is the schedule for the CFP and speaker selection for those that are interested.

  • Submission Opens: December 15, 2012
  • First Round Deadline: December 31, 2012
  • First Round Selections Announced: January 10, 2012
  • Final Submission Deadline: January 15, 2013
  • Final Round Selection Announced: January 25, 2013

Also note that you must have a ShmooCon barcode to take part. I know … very frustrating but for insurance reasons it’s necessary.

Anyway, to get started head on over to the EasyChair SC2013FT portal.

Stay tuned for more details on the ShmooCon 2013 Firetalks. See ya!
