There shall be no financial remuneration. Speakers and co-speakers shall be granted a free entrance ticket to the 3-day conference (tutorials excluded). The speakers shall be refunded hotel and travel expenses on presentation of receipts, the amount of which is, however, limited to a lump-sum per speaker of € 700.00 (if the speaker travels within Europe) or € 1,400.00 (if the speaker travels from outside of Europe), including economy class trip, car, bus, train or taxi transfer.
In any case we cover 3 (three) hotel nights per speaker. Hotel costs include the accommodation in a double room for max. 3 nights (from November 15-18, 2020) only.
We don’t cover expenses for food, beverages or any other services. All receipts are to be presented to the organization team subsequent to the conference.
We guarantee free parking at the conference venue, therefore please ask the organizer for a free parking ticket.
What we are Looking for
A presentation on some subject or topic in front of an audience.
105- and 150-min Workshops
Workshops are designed to teach or develop a certain skill. They are directed more towards collaborating and learning in an interactive environment. The different workshops should contain at least 50% practical exercises, which can be extended to more than 80% distinct full-on training.
This is a combination of a 30-min talk delivering the theory, followed by a 75-min or 90-min workshop to practice the preceding talk hands-on. Both sessions need to work individually, as attendees might not stay for both sessions.
Fun and creative sessions that provide a balance to the agile, testing-related and technical sessions.
Sessions that start or roundup a conference day in the morning or evening to encourage networking and socializing.
