Speak at MinneWebCon

MinneWebCon’s schedule is created from fantastic submissions from speakers around the country. Submissions for 2018 will be accepted October 1 through Sunday, November 5 at 11:59pm.

New this year

This year we are encouraging sessions and workshops related to artificial intelligence (AI) and virtual reality (VR). We hope to have a range of talks from entry-level to advanced, specific to tangential. Some potential sessions could be: What do I need to know about AI as a web developer/designer/content strategist, Using natural language processing (NLP) to create engaging content, Designing inclusive virtual reality experiences, etc.

AI and VR are no longer the “next big thing.” They’re already here. Whether you work with them every day, or are navigating a new landscape, this is your chance to share opportunities and challenges you’re facing.

Contact us if you have questions about this year’s theme and what it means for you/your topic.

One-hour sessions

Day One programming is made up of one-hour presentations from web folks just like you. We want the day to be a healthy mix of big ideas, new theories, and hands-on knowledge for an audience that includes designers, developers, writers, and other roles in creating the web.

With this year’s theme in mind, we ask that presentation submissions fall under one of the following areas:

  • Front-end Development: HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and other client-side development
  • Back-end Development: server side languages and frameworks, databases, CMSs
  • User Platforms: mobile devices, tablets, browsers
  • Project Planning and Management: projects, clients, and their expectations
  • User Experience: interfaces, sequences, processes
  • Design: graphic design, typography, styling
  • Content: writing, editing, managing content
  • Social: Communities, networks, platforms (Facebook, Twitter, etc)
  • Other (for combinations or when it just won’t fit anywhere else)

We welcome first-time session presenters – if you have an idea, please share it!

Three-hour workshops

Day Two of MinneWebCon is divided in half with morning and afternoon three-hour workshops. With the theme of VR/AI, this is your opportunity to provide a deep dive to fully benefit attendees. We ask that workshop facilitators have a bit more speaking experience, so tell us a little about your past experience leading training or teaching in this proposal form.

FYI, there are perks for all presenters and facilitators!

  • Free Day One conference admission
  • $700 honorarium per workshop or $200 honorarium per session

Note: at this time, MinneWebCon is unable to provide for travel expenses to and from Minneapolis.
