Guidelines for Submitting a Speaking Proposal

Seminar sessions typically are 75-90 minutes in length and usually feature 3-4 speakers, each presenting for approximately 20 minutes. Proposals to speak or organize a panel session should be sent to with the following information:
    1. Speaker name, title, company, and contact information
    2. Presentation title (or title of panel session)
    3. Abstract of presentation or panel session (150 - 200 words)
    4. Speaker biography and photo
    5. Bullet list of 3-4 key take-aways from the presentation or panel session
Additional Guidance
  • We ask that proposals be non-commercial in nature. Submissions will be carefully reviewed by the Program Advisory Group to ensure depth of information and relevance to the program.

  • Sponsorship of the Forum is not a requirement for participating as a speaker. However, there are sponsorship options that do include a speaking engagement. For more information, please contact us.

  • Speaking proposals may include more than one speaker. Proposals that include an IoT customer / end user speaker are particularly welcome

  • Presentations that emphasize case studies, best practices, and real-world results are encouraged
