Celebrating 10 years PHP UK Conference

February 19-20 2015, The Brewery, London

CALL FOR PAPERS

Opens September 1st 2014 9AM GMT - Closes November 1st 2014 Midnight GMT

Overview

The main attraction of any conference is the talks that are given and we aim to attract the best PHP speakers from around the world. We solicit talks through a call for papers so you, the community, can tell us what kinds of things everyone should be hearing about.

We are looking for talks relating to any non-basic aspect of the PHP programming language, be it mainstream, advanced, niche or non-technical. We are looking for real 'wow' talks that are fresh and inspiring about cutting edge topics or new perspectives on common problems. The audience will be from all backgrounds varying in skill level from beginner to intermediate to advanced, so talks varying widely in topic and skill levels are required. Most of all we want speakers who have a deep knowledge about the topics they are proposing and can't wait to share that knowledge with a whole group of of eager listeners. Tell us what you're most passionate about and why we should be passionate about it as well.

Selection Process

We receive on average 200 papers for 30 talk slots. In order to select these 30 talks, we use the following 3 step process:

  1. Using an anonymized list of all papers (contains talk title, abstract, and 'why you should choose this talk'), the organisers rate each talk from 1-5 to create a shortlist of around 60 abstracts.
  2. Abstracts are then discussed and put in order of must have talks, with the top 30-40 papers being the focus.
  3. Submissions are then deanonymized and final selections are made based on the speaker's location/cost of travel and level of the talk.

Package

What's in it for me? Fame and fortune! Well, maybe not just yet, but, speaking at a conference is a great way to give back to the amazing PHP community that has given so much to you. In addition to giving back to the community, we are very pleased to be able to offer the following benefits package to all our speakers:

How to Submit

Interested in giving a talk? Please complete the submission information laid out in a handy form for you. We'll need to know some bits and bobs about yourself and we'll need a title and abstract (up to 200 words) of the talk you'd like to give.
