CALL FOR SPEAKERS - Submission Deadline Friday September 2nd 2011

We are seeking high-quality session proposals covering any aspect of User Experience and Design for software, Web and mobile applications.

Hands-on sessions, experience reports, tutorials, panels and other interactive sessions are particularly encouraged although more theoretical sessions are also welcome.

In addition to paying no conference fees, being a speaker gives you a unique opportunity to present your viewpoint to our audience.


Making a session proposal isn't difficult. All we require is some basic information on the session you plan to run - enough to judge that it would be of value to our participants.

Please read our Terms and Conditions before submitting a session proposal.

If you accept these Terms and Conditions you can submit your session proposals here.

We've come up with some suggested session types, but feel free to propose your own:

Session Types

Case Study / Experience Report

A presentation and discussion of real-life (not theoretical) experiences of the application (or mis-application) of any UX techniques. Case studies and experience reports must include some discussion of lessons learned and an indication of how novel the work is.


A session focused around some specific tool, technique or issue. Primarily led by the speaker but should include some elements of interactivity or individual / group exercise.

Hands-On Session

Participants learn a new approach, tool or technology through using it to solve one or more practical exercises. We recommend that hands-on sessions are run by two session leaders. Please include a description of any required hardware and software for the session and how you will distribute the software to participants.

A facilitated discussion session based around a well-defined topic or question related to the conference themes. The session leader introduces the topic and may seed the session with particular questions or subtopics. A small number of 'experts' then debate the topic or question. However, participants are free to join in the discussion by taking the 'experts' places as they relinquish their seats. We can provide contact details for people who could make good initial 'experts'.


A small group of 'experts' presents their views on some defined conference topic. Audience members may ask questions of the panel.


There are many open issues related to the conference themes. A think-tank considers one or more such issues and aims to produce some outputs of value to the community. The session leader is responsible for managing the Think Tank and completing the session outputs.


An in-depth working session on a specific topic. May include paper presentations.


Please read our Terms and Conditions before submitting a session proposal.
