The Call for Programming Proposals for LeakyCon 2017 is now closed.

Thank you to everyone who submitted a program proposal! Our team is currently reviewing the submissions and accepted presenters will be notified in the coming weeks.

RULES AND QUESTIONS

Can I create a panel where we bring on a celebrity or special guest?

No, we’re sorry! These are programs that LeakyCon attendees develop on their own, we won’t be able to facilitate celebrity guests for you.

Is there one format I have to follow? Does it have to be a panel?

Not at all! You create the program you want to run. It can be a panel, a roundtable, a lecture, a meetup, a singalong, or whatever you envision! Just make sure you specify what you’d like to create in your application (i.e. “I’d like to moderate a panel of four people…”)

Helpful hints: a panel consists of 4–6 people with a moderator who leads a discussion, and is often followed by a Q&A session with the audience; a roundtable consists of 4+ people discussing a topic amongst themselves as an audience listens and sometimes chimes in; a lecture consists of one or two people speaking to an audience.

My presentation works best as a PowerPoint. Will I have access to a projector?

Yes. If your program idea is selected, LeakyCon will work with you to make sure the room is set up for your panel. All programming rooms will have microphones for panelists and music playback capability.

I have my idea but I’m not really sure how to put all the details together. Will someone from LeakyCon help me develop my session?

Yes! We want the original idea to come from our attendees, but our team will definitely help you get it up on its feet so you feel ready and comfortable when the time comes to run your program!

If you have any further questions regarding programming, please email [email protected], and a team member will be in touch.

The deadline for submissions has been extended through May 19, 2017.
