if you want to speak at a tech conference you must first submit a CFP. CFP stands for Call for Proposals or Call for Papers. Conferences require potential speakers to submit CFPs to get an idea of the topic that you would like to speak on at their conference.
In this episode we cover what you need to put into your CFP, how long it should be and what makes for a good CFP. We provide examples of CFPs that were accepted at conferences. We also explain why you should submit more than one CFP to a conference.
Mentioned in this episode
DevNexus – a tech conference in Atlanta, GA. We mentioned it in the podcast because you can view every CFP that was accepted for the past 15 years of this conference.
Connect Tech – another tech conference in Atlanta with different tracks than DevNexus. You can view all the CFPs that have been accepted for the past 5 years.
PaperCall – a website used by many conferences worldwide to list their open CFPs. If you want to speak at a conference this is a great resource in which to find them.
