What we're looking for
Keynotes are 50 min while regular presentations are 15 or 30 min and all talks should be in English.
Every year we do a feedback survey to hear what attendees love and what they'd like to see more of. Here are some key phrases that could be of use when writing your proposal.
- Push the boundaries
- Be pedagogic and straightforward
- Care about the audience, not your ego
- Be practical - show tools you can use right away
- Spark interest
To have a complete proposal you need to have a video of yourself. If you don’t have something recorded already, we encourage you to create a short video (2-3 minutes) of yourself presenting your session. What we’re looking at is your passion, knowledge, and personality as a speaker. If you have any questions, please let us know!
Keep proposals free of marketing and sales. Product pitches are automatic rejects. Lessons learned from building or running your product, however, can be invaluable.
We take an active part in promoting inclusivity and openness, not only at our conference but in the design and tech scene overall. We’re therefore very proud over having had a gender equal speaker lineup at Nordic.js 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017. For 2018, we’re working towards having an even more diverse lineup of speakers.
