Alfresco DevCon 2018 Call For Paper

Blog Post created by fcorti Employee on Sep 26, 2017

Immediately after the official announcement of the Alfresco DevCon 2018, we are pleased to launch the call for paper for the event.




As you probably know, the intended audience of the Alfresco DevCon is mainly technical, like Developers, Architects, DevOps, etc. Talks enabling newbies or focused on Alfresco experts (and all the various skills in between) will be considered as a good target for the conference. For this reason we welcome both first-time and experienced speakers, with a focus on technical content.


The call for paper is already opened and will be closed on Monday 23rd of October 2017. Standard sessions will have a duration of 30 minutes and we will provide a limited number of Extended sessions, having a duration of 45 minutes. In addition to that, lightning talks will be available using the Ignite-style (20 slides auto-advancing every 15 seconds for a total amount of 5 minutes for each talk). If it’s your first time talking in a public speaking session, you should consider the lightning talk format for your submission.

Alfresco DevCon is a technical conference done from Tech enthusiasts for Tech enthusiasts. Alfresco Engineers, DevOps, Architects, etc. are invited to submit, together with Alfresco Partners, Customers and members of the Community. The submissions will be reviewed by a Selection Committee, composed by Alfrescans and recognized members of the Order of The Bee.


We will inform you of the decision of the Selection Committee by the 10th of November 2017. All approved speakers for full presentations (30 or 45 minutes) will receive a code for free event registration. Our Early Bird registration rate will last until Dec 31, so you will not miss the discounted price, should your paper not be accepted.


Unsure of what to present?


Some ideas for topics that our audience would find interesting can be found in previous editions of the Alfresco events. Below a list including the latest ones.


Would you like someone to review your proposal before submitting?


You can contact Francesco Corti - Product Evangelist (francesco.corti@alfresco.com) or Kristen Gastaldo - Community Manager (kristen.gastaldo@alfresco.com), for any question or support you may require.


Last but not least, a conference can only be as good as its content, so we are counting on you to help us put together the greatest Alfresco DevCon this year. Looking forward to meet you in person in Lisbon.
