Call for Speakers 2018

Call for Speaker / Panel submissions

Thank you for your interest in the SIC conference program. Applicants will receive a speaking status update by July 31, 2018, via email to the address provided on the submission form.

SIC is compiling a world-class roster of interactive thought leaders, cultural beacons for a program packed with bold thinking and tactical information. Think you have something new to say about how interactive technologies, design and culture are transforming what we do and how we live every day? The key word is new: Previous speaking experience is excellent, but we are not interested in recycling presentations from other events. We are interested in selecting speakers who share our commitment to providing the SIC audience with unique experiences and real-time information that matters.

We are accepting speaker proposals through July 31st. Fill out the form here and be sure to include all of your contact information.  We will confirm that we've received your proposal and will follow up directly with you by August 10th if you've been accepted or if we have any questions. Please do not follow up with us directly about proposal status, as we will keep you informed. If your session is accepted we’ll be asking for a professional headshot and bio so please have that ready. Thanks for your interest in speaking at SIC and we look forward to seeing you October 17-18!

Want to help curate SIC?  

Join us at a Pitch Sessions event in your focus. Pitch Sessions are a community brainstorming forum and networking opportunity. Meet your peers and exchange ideas on what we should cover at SIC 2018.  Groups led by a SIC team members exchange ideas for sessions, panels or other ways that SIC might grow. Come ready to have a conversation, share in the group and take away feedback. There is no formal presentation format on stage. We hope new ideas will be born from these conversations and ideas you came with will be refined for a formal submission. Any sessions born at the Pitch Sessions events will be given special consideration and priority for programming.
