You should also share your proposal on social networks to further increase the visibility.

Tips for your proposal

  • Write a detailed proposal and try to be as specific as possible.
  • Think of a good title. The title of your talk should both be informative and make it clear what it will be about while at the same time make people interested in hearing your talk.
  • Make the focus point of your talk clear, this will help us to differentiate your proposal from those on a similar topic.
  • Submit your proposal early. This will help you to get more attention to your proposal, increasing the chances that it will be selected.
