Call for Speakers

Sharing is what makes #PSEWEB great.

This conference is our big chance to share our experiences, expertise, victories, and defeats with each other. It’s how we learn and come up with amazing ideas.

So, if you work for a Canadian post-secondary institution in web or digital communications and you want to share, don’t be shy.

Submit a presentation proposal. Speaker sessions are usually 20 – 30 minutes long, with questions at the end. Two sessions run at the same time, so you’ll be presenting to about 60 people or so. The mood is collegial and fun.

How Does it Work?

Submit your presentation idea using our form. The deadline is Friday, January 8.

Once all the proposals are in, we post them on the website and let early bird ticket holders vote for their favourites.

We use the voting results to help determine the schedule for the conference. If your session is selected, we’ll let you know before the end of January.

Expectations

We ask all session speakers to attend at least one full day of the conference.

Presenters are volunteers. We don’t compensate you financially for services, travel, or accommodation. However, speakers (one per presentation) do get a $150 discount on their conference registrations!

Some Tips

Here are a few pointers for your submission.

  • Assume people know the basics. Show us how to take something one step farther.
  • Be specific. Sessions about particular strategies, projects, or technologies are usually more popular than general presentations.
  • Be clear and concise. Voters will have a lot of proposals to read through. Let them know what they’ll get out of your presentation quickly and easily.

 

Call for Speakers is closed for 2016. Stay tuned for this year’s schedule!

Note: After you submit, scroll down the page to check for validation errors or messages.
