Call for Speakers
Big Data Week is one of the most unique global platforms of interconnected community events focusing on the social, political, technological and commercial impacts of Big Data. It brings together a global community of data scientists, data technologies, data visualisers and data businesses.
We celebrate innovation, sharing of knowledge and ideas by inviting members of our community to speak and participate during the festival.
This year we’re inviting proposals for case studies and presentations from practitioners, business leaders, analysts, designers, and developers. We’re interested in success stories, best practices, failures, cautionary tales, and future developments.
We want to hear your stories and innovation from the worlds of finance, health and science, media and entertainment, retail, finance, government and social.
All presentations are limited to 10-15 minutes in duration (depending the city organisers) and you’re only permitted up to five slides – we’re trying to avoid death by Powerpoint at the festival. Of course if you demo live code, that’s even better!
Whether you want to speak* at a community meet-up or one the main conferences on the 25th April in one of 12 cities – we’d like to hear from you.
*We can’t promise everyone who applies will get a chance to present, but we’ll do our best to pick the most interesting and entertaining presentations. The speaking slots are all unpaid, but we can cover reasonable travel expenses.
