You made the right decision. We are delighted that you have decided to share your wisdom at #PSEWeb 2024 taking place in July in Olds, Alberta and online. Please take a moment to read through this page, and then complete the proposal form at the end.
Never been to #PSEWeb before?
No problem! We’re an incredibly welcoming bunch, and previous conference attendance is by no means a requirement for speakers. Our vibe is collegial and fun, so expect a friendly audience of savvy, capable professionals who are excited to learn.
#PSEWeb is a Canadian peer-presented conference that gives us an opportunity to share our experiences, expertise, victories, and defeats with each other. It’s how we learn and come up with fresh ideas, build community, brush up on industry trends, and keep ourselves ahead of the curve.
How does it work?
Sessions are usually 30 minutes long, with questions at the end. You can expect to have anywhere between 50 – 100 people in attendance.
Please Note: For the 2024 conference, all speakers will be in-person. While the conference will be livestreamed, speakers will be presenting to a live audience in Olds.
Deadline: We are accepting proposals until March 1, 2024.
Anyone who submits a proposal will receive a $50 discount on their conference ticket. This can be applied to all ticket types (i.e. early bird, regular rates, in person/virtual) whether or not you’re selected.
Once all the proposals are in, the #PSEWeb community will vote for their favourites, with the voting results used to help determine the schedule for the conference.
If you’re chosen, we’ll send you a discount code for FREE in-person conference registration (and unlimited bragging rights). If you’ve already purchased an early bird ticket, we’ll process a refund for you.
If you are co-presenting with another speaker, only one of you will get the free conference registration. The second speaker will get a 50% discount on their registration.
A few pointers for your proposal
- Assume people know the basics. Show us how to take something one step further.
- Be specific. Sessions about particular strategies, how-to’s, 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. Proposals with a clear, bulleted list of learning outcomes for the session are always helpful.
- Be prepared for voters to read what you submit. The conference team will only lightly proofread your proposal, so it’s best written in a way that addresses voters and conference-goers alike.
