The Open Stage is yours!

tl;dr - We're inviting you to submit your proposal for a talk or workshop on the Open Stage until May 8, 2014!

Are you working on a new project that you would like to share with others and get feedback? This year, we're having an Open Stage again, giving you the opportunity to hold a talk or workshop for a topic of your choice. This is the place for your thoughts and ideas or maybe for your first speaking experience in front of a kind and very interested audience.

In parallel to the regular conference schedule, the Open Stage will be hosting talks and workshops on Monday and Tuesday from 12:00 to 17:30. The number of talks depends on their lenght and is based on the first-come-first-serve principle. Just fill in the form here - you'll then hear back from us with a confirmation and more information on the date and time. This stage will be moderated by session chairs who will supervise the advertised slot lengths.

We would like to invite everyone, from all experience-levels, regardless of gender, physical appearance, sexual orientation or religion, to propose a talk or workshop and be part of a diverse Open Stage Program! If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us. We're always glad to help and assist.

As an additional incentive, we're giving away two free tickets for this years GOTO conference in Berlin. All proposals for the Open Stage that reach us before the end of this month (March 31th, 2014,  23:59 CET) will take part in the raffle, so be quick!

Please have in mind that you need a ticket for Berlin Buzzwords to present on the Open Stage.
