ISVCon 2013: Call for Speakers
ISVCon is a non-profit conference for ISVs (Independent Software Vendors). It attracts software developers, publishers, and other professionals in the software industry, all sharing a common interest in software marketing, sales, development, distribution, and other related issues. ISVCon provides an environment of networking, education, and collaboration.
ISVCon 2013 will take place September 27-29 in Reno, Nevada at the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa.
Please consider supporting the conference not only by attending and/or sponsoring, but also by sharing your knowledge and expertise with others. We invite you to submit your proposal to speak at the conference.
New this year – We will be offering free conference registration for speakers, which includes the conference-sponsored lunches! (Sorry, we are not able to provide any compensation for travel or accommodations.)
Speakers are needed on all subjects related to being an ISV. We are especially interested in topics with recent buzz, like mobile computing, cloud computing, software as a service, social networks, etc. Business and marketing related subjects are always popular too. In fact, any subject of interest to ISVs will be considered.
The ISVCon sessions will run in a single track, and will incorporate topics of interest for both start-ups and experienced ISVs.
Most sessions are an hour long, and individual presentations can run anywhere from 15 to 50 minutes, depending on whether you are going “solo” or will be on a panel with other speakers (remember that we leave time at the end of each session for audience questions). If you and a friend or two have an idea for a shared session, each speaker should submit a proposal for their talk, and note their preferred session partners.
Your speaking proposal should include the following details:
1. Speaker name
3. Contact information
4. Subject of proposed presentation (and/or possible title)
5. Summary of proposed presentation
(please include enough detail to differentiate your presentation from any other proposed presentations on a similar subject)
As with the 2012 event, we will be video taping the sessions, and posting them on our website for viewing by attendees, newsletter subscribers, and ASP members.
Please email your ISVCon speaking proposal to Rich Holler, firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for submitting your proposal is Tuesday, March 12th.
If your proposal is accepted, you will be notified via email by Friday, March 29th.
If you represent a company that sells products or services to ISVs, you are welcome to submit a proposal to speak in your area of expertise. However, we require that the majority of a presentation be of general interest, with any company- or product-specific information limited to only the last few minutes of the presentation.
