Want to speak in front of 3000 people? Have experiences to share including topics like development, building websites with WordPress, design, business, community, content or maybe some other interesting topic? Then don’t wait but apply to speak at WordCamp Europe, or learn more in the official announcement.
This year, WordCamp Europe is taking a slightly different approach on selecting speakers. That’s why we’re inviting teams of community representatives to help us review the applications. Speaker selection panels will be asked to review different categories. We’ll have panels for Development, Design, Business, and Community. We also have an “Other” category for those that doesn’t fit neatly into the other categories.
All applications are subject to blind voting of a specific team mentioned above, which then makes their suggestions to the speakers team. Speakers team will use recommendations to build a schedule, but will look beyond just recommendations – they will also look for quality and experience of each speaker proposed, how the topic fits in the overall schedule, its relevance to WordCamp Europe audience and speaker roster diversity.
Call for speakers is open until 27th January 2017. Speaker selection process will take place in February and speakers will get informed early March.
