2017 Session Proposal Submission

Submit your proposal, for a presention, that you would like to give at the upcoming workshop. Fields marked by a red asterisk (*) are required.




Give a one, or two, paragraph description of your session:

  • what are you going to cover
  • what should people know before attending?
Your cover page should include, not only the session title, but also your name, the date, and your e-mail address for use if they have questions.

How much do you expect the attendee to know about the topic? In general the attendees at VM Workshop have a technical background, but assuming a "Scientific American" level of knowledge is a not safe bet -- you have a technically capable audience, but they might not know anything about what you're talking about.

How long do you expect your session to last?

Do you need internet access?

 No Internet Access
 Hard wired required
 Wi-Fi required

Does your presentation need any special A/V requirements? An HDMI- and VGA-connection projector and microphone are standard equipment.

Anything else you'd like to tell us about your session? E.g. a preferred day and time for your session (which we cannot guarantee, but will try to meet, or be close to, if at all possible).

You may upload your presentation as long as it does NOT exceed 256k, in size.

To reduce security risks at our web site, and accidental excessive file sizes eating into our storage, please e-mail your materials to: presentations@vmworkshop.org --- Permitted formats: txt, vmarc, pdf, doc, html, docx, xls, xlsx, zip, tar, tgz, tbz2, ppt, pptx, ps, gif, odp, odt, jpg, png, tiff, mp3, wav, and mpg --- One of our able volunteers will save them to our presentation link when we get within a week or so of the workshop opening day. (You don't want people downloading them months before and then skipping your presentation, do you!?) ;-)

Note: You should receive a confirmation email, shortly after your successful submission. If you don't receive the confirmation email, please contact us at webmaster@vmworkshop.org.
