Selection Process for Conference Program and Speaker Slots
The main steps in developing our conference programs are similar for all events.1. Curriculum Sketch
Broad outline of the in-depth programs and hot topics planned posted to the Web about six months before the event.2. Call for Papers
An email announcement sent to hundreds of thousands of mobile industry speakers and sources3. Proposal Review
Analysis of proposed session, speaker credentials, topic relevance, topic interest and program fit. [See some Proposal Guidelines.]4. Completion and Confirmations
The program is completed about six weeks after the submission deadline. Once confirmed, speakers are sent a speaker commitment form.5. Evaluation and Follow-up
About six weeks after each event, the audience evaluation ratings are sent to all presenters. Only speakers rate at least 4.0 ("Very Good" to "Excellent") on the five point evaluation scale are invited back.
