ShmooCon Firetalks 2016 – Call for Presentations/Volunteers

FireTalks LogoAlthough many of the details are still being worked out we wanted to put out a quick post to announce the ShmooCon 2015 FireTalks call for papers and volunteers. 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. And as always you MUST have a ShmooCon barcode to submit, volunteer, or attend FireTalks.

CFP

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 Google Form below. It seems a bit easier than the EasyChair system we’ve used in the past.

If you are having problems with the form above, try on this Google Form page instead. For those of you that are date driven, here is our planned schedule for the CFP and speaker selection process.

  • Submission Opens: December 7, 2015
  • CFP Deadline: December 20, 2015
  • Author Notification: December 25, 2015
  • Author Confirmation: January 1, 2016
  • Schedule Announced: January 4, 2015

Volunteers

Lastly, we are looking for a number of volunteers to help pull this whole event together. If you are interested in volunteering, please hit me up on Twitter at @grecs. Below is a sample of volunteer positions we have used in the past.

  • Security (need 3+ people here)
  • Judging Panel Coordination
  • Speaker Wrangler
  • Blogger
  • Streaming/Recording
  • AV Coordination
  • CFP Review
  • Timer/Tweeter

See ya!
