A premium community conference for IT professionals and companies in the CEE region, now at its 10th edition.ITCamp 2020: 2 days, 5 tracks, 50+ sessions.Check out some overview videos from our past editions: 2019 / 2018 / 2017 / 2016  ITCamp 2020 - Call for Content---------------In the past weeks, the ITCamp team has been closely monitoring the developing global situation with regards to COVID-19, and we've been continuously reviewing the guidance provided by international organizations, government institutions, and local authorities, as well as timeline estimates on the pandemic and the impact it might have on large-scale events. As you know, a great number of events have already been canceled all over the world, and there’s probably more to come.In an attempt to ensure the health and safety of our attendees and speakers, as well as to make sure we are able to deliver the level of quality people have come to expect from ITCamp, we’ve made the decision to tentatively push this year’s edition to October. We're also looking at the option of moving to an online event instead. In any case, we'll keep everyone updated on any decisions. Thank you very much for your patience and understanding. Stay safe!---------------This year, like in the past years, we would like to give a chance to other IT community people out there (from both Romania and abroad) to attend our conference as speakers. So, if you want to have your own session and speak to a highly experienced IT audience, then this is your chance!Topics, Submissions & Deadline The call for speakers ends on June 30th. We accept sessions on any of the following topics:Development (any language/platform)Cloud & InfrastructureData Science & AIAR/VRDevOps & AutomationIT SecurityUI/UX DesignLegal & ComplianceBusiness, Management & InnovationDigital TransformationSoft SkillsEvaluation ProcessAll submitted sessions will be rated and ordered based on their final score/rating. Selected speakers will be invited to attend this year’s ITCamp event on June 4th-5th. Travel and accommodations will be covered for all selected speakers not based in Cluj-Napoca (Romania).   Evaluation Criteria  Technical or management expertise Past experience as a speakerPresentation skillsSession contentSession levelTips for a winning submission Before submitting your session, you might want to consider the target audience you’ll be talking to, as well as some of the other tips we have put together for you. You can submit more than one session.For instance, you can check out the breakdown on the technical expertise and role in the organization for the attendees from last year – this should help in positioning your content so that it is relevant for that type of an audience.We are marking all sessions on the agenda according to their technical depth level. We will use something similar to the TechEd conference session levels (ranked 100-400), so you will be asked to evaluate or plan your target session level before submitting it.Check out an overview of the SESSION LEVELS we use here. We’re open to pretty much any technical (development, Cloud, infrastructure, security, etc.) or IT management/business topic. Feel free to check the sessions from past years if you need some inspiration.  Also, please keep the following recommendations in mind:   Write a descriptive, fun and enticing title – this should “sell” your session to the audience Target 300-400 level technical content; 100 and 200 level content is in low demand – if you say your talk is level 400 then make sure it is or be prepared for a barrage of feedback in your evaluations!Describe content that is new, unique or significantly refreshed from a previous presentationTake a solution-oriented approachEnsure there is minimal marketing talk in your contentShowcase your speaking experience (past events/sessions you’ve had, ideally sessions which were also recorded)If targeting levels 100-200, focus on currently released or upcoming technologiesLook into an advanced/expert approach to existing technologies and solutions (levels 300-400)Include one or more live demos for technical sessions; historically, sessions with strong demos receive higher audience scoresInclude personal experience; this goes down well with an audience of your peers, as everyone prefers to learn from someone else’s mistake instead of having to go through it themselvesPlease note that sessions that focus on proprietary technologies or solutions and on selling/advertising those technologies will be ignored from the start. Also, the ITCamp organizers reserve the right to select specific sessions based on other criteria or preferences, as needed. Thank you, and good luck! :)
