Apply to Speak at Pi Convention
Two Speaker tracks
We are looking for speakers from different regions of the Pi community in two tracks: community track and developer track.
Community Track is for speakers to present innovative ideas about how their regional community can be organized so that voices, ideas and talents of the Pioneers in their regions can be surfaced.
Developer Track speakers are to present apps they are building or want to build on Pi, and how their app will integrate Pi to build the larger Pi ecosystem.
Depending on the language and content in the presentation, all speaker submissions of this application will be considered for two types of sessions:
Global Session: English Speakers with presentation content applicable to the global community will have the opportunity to be considered for addressing the global audience of Pi Network.
Regional Session: Speakers in native languages with presentation content more relevant to the regional community will be considered for the Regional Sessions in the Pi Convention. This is a great way to help highlight community builders & development in each region.
Speakers must not be self-promotional, but should be educational. Your presentation or talk should focus on an idea, solution, method, approach, analysis or design, rather than a specific brand, name or service. You can demo your product interface and service designs as supporting materials to explain the above. However, the representation or talk must show how such ideas, solutions and designs etc. contribute to the Pi Network ecosystem.
Speakers’ presentations are not the channel to submit requests or questions. If you pose a question about Pi Network in your talk, we expect you to present a potential solution to that question during the same talk. Questions and requests can be sent and heard through a different format of participation in the convention, but not through speakers’ presentations.
Mention of sponsors or third-party promotions are NOT allowed in talks.
Each presentation and talk should be submitted only once. Spamming submissions will not lead to a higher chance of selection.
Talk length can be between 15 and 45 minutes.
Speakers must prepare slides and presentation visuals.
Given that it is an online convention, Speakers will present in a video format.
There are three stages in the application process to be considered as a speaker for the Pi Convention.
- First application for Speakers. The Pi Core Team will read applications & invite potential candidates for the next round application.
- Second round application. Candidates will be asked more in-depth questions about their presentation & to provide a short demo video submission of it.
- Final selected speakers will be contacted and notified.
