We are excited to be opening up the Call for Papers for php[tek] 2014. The php[tek] conference is the premier professional PHP conference and an event not to be missed. We are looking for submissions about any aspect of PHP and related PHP projects (such as WordPress, Drupal, and various PHP frameworks). We also welcome presentations about any related Web Technologies and processes that are cruicial to modern web development such as HTML5, JavaScript, Testing, Deployment, etc. The Call for Papers ends at midnight UTC on January 10th, 2014 - So make sure that you don't forget to submit to it over this holiday season.

PHP runs over 80% of the internet at the moment. Take a moment to think about that staggering statistic. Because of this, the use-cases of PHP are extremely broad, and we want php[tek] to reflect that. We therefore want submissions that cover the entire range of Web Development processes. We want to hear about how PHP is getting the job done throughout the world.

Importantly, we don’t necessarily look for talks that are only about PHP itself. Some of our most successful presentations have been on products built on PHP (such as WordPress, Drupal, and other frameworks) and on technologies that are crucial to building on the web (HTML5, JavaScript, Mobile Development, Apache, Databases, Deployment, etc.)

Welcome back to Lone Star PHP for another great year! We're in our fourth year and we're making things better all the time.

Much like last year's conference, we'll be hosting a Fundamentals track during the first day of the event, but we'll also be looking for 26 other speakers to fill all of the regular speaking slots.

Speakers will be announced on January 20th, 2014. In the mean time, submit a paper to become a 2014 Lone Star PHP speaker!

The theme for Øredev 2013 - The Arts - may be very provocative. We hope so.

Art is a powerful vehicle for communication, a way to express visions that are beyond words. It plays an essential role in exploring the emotional dimensions of our lives and challenges the way we think about the world and the future. Art by essence fosters creativity and provocation, develops innovation and beauty.

Few media of creation are so flexible and so capable of making grand ideas a concrete reality as software. As programmers, we often see ourselves as craftsmen or as scientists. But if we say that we are artists - what will change? What different angles to explore and question for our field will we find? Is it possible to elevate our day-to-day work by seeing it as an art form? This is what we will explore at Øredev 2013.

We invite developers, testers, and project managers to reflect on the art of our programming processes, languages, tools, and platforms. Like Art, our sessions and keynotes will be creative, provocative, and innovative. Keeping with this theme, we ask you to focus on delivering your insight, a methodological approach or technical knowledge to our participants that can be put in their toolbox and put into practice when they go back to their daily work.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following: Java, .Net, JavaScript, HTML5, Agile, Testing, Functional Programming, Cloud, Innovation, Android, Windows Phone, Mobile, Tools for Quality, DevOps, Databases, Hands-On, UX, Rest, Data + Domain, Tools, Creativity, Beauty.

Surge is the premire conference for industry thought leaders to gather and share their ideas around scaling for the web. For the practitioner, it offers an unparalleled chance to learn from others mistakes, and see how their victories can power your business forward. Surge is all about scalability. On the technical side of Internet businesses, there are three serious scaling challenges: infrastructure, architecture and organizations.

The types of talks we like to get are those that recognize failure as a part of success. The most valuable sessions for attendees are those that honestly present a problem and walk the audience through a series of failures that ultimately result in finding the right path. A story of success rising from the ashes of failure; the bigger the fire, the more people learn. We want you to come and speak to a global audience on the challenges of scaling large Internet-facing architectures.

PS. Don't have a great story to tell, but know someone who does? Let us know, and we'll help you pester them into submitting a talk.

We are inviting the Ruby community to submit talks for this year’s eurucamp in Berlin. This Call for Proposals will close on 15 May. Our CFP process is based on the process used at JSConf EU 2012 . When you’re ready to submit a proposal, visit our CFP submission app and login with your Twitter or GitHub credentials.

To get a feel for what we might be interested in hearing about, take a look at the programme for previous years ( 2012 | 2011 ). eurucamp is a Ruby event. We are looking for Ruby topics or topics that would interest Rubyists. Rails talks are welcome, but we are framework agnostic. We also accept non-talk proposals, like workshops and moderated discussions. You can select your format in the CFP Process.

Not everybody is a natural talent on stage. Not everybody can produce kick-ass slide-decks. Not everybody is a live-demo-god. Not everybody knows they have something great to talk about.

There are about a million reasons why you don’t consider yourself a speaker, let alone at eurucamp, where all your heroes have spoken in the past. We are here to prove you wrong. If all you have is a gut feeling that you should be on stage, we are here to reach out and help you to develop or hone the skills you think you lack to deliver a great presentation.

Event Location: Las Vegas, Nevada, USA
Call for Paper Dates: 03/07/2013 - 05/20/2013
CFP Direct Link   CLOSED

I have often said that DEF CON is like a crystal ball others look into to try and see the future. What are the hackers and researchers up to? If they think something is interesting now, chances are it might be important in the future. Attendees and other speakers want to see what is inspiring those in our community.

DEF CON is focused on new ways to approach security and privacy, as well as building a community that is open to new ideas. Everything from the most complex modern technology to hacking grandma's toaster through Bluetooth is fair game. Show us and the world what you have been up to and what attack exploits, defensive techniques, or unique research you have been working on.

DEF CON doesn't have specific tracks but instead we cluster topics of similar interests. We might pair two talks back to back, "how to break it" followed by "how to fix it", or pair a law enforcement panel back to back with civil liberties presentation.

In 2013, Dutch web development usergroup PFZ.nl organizes the eighth edition of PFCongres. If all those years taught us one thing, it would be that we can't do anything without our speakers! For previous editions, we have been very proud to present a mix of both "big names" from the web development world as well as ambitious new speakers. We have no plans to change that goal for this years' conference.

And that is why you're here: our Call for Papers. Are you the one to take our audience along unthreaded paths to unexplored dungeons or to the highest peaks where no person has ever set foot before? Would you delve deep to share your knowledge of some web development related topic with our inquisitive audience? You are? You do? Then it is you we are looking for! Please fill out the form below and we kindly request you not to hesitate and send in multiple proposals, if you like.

We are looking for talks in both English and Dutch.

The absolute deadline for our Call for Papers is Saturday, June 1st, 2013. Make sure you've sent in all your proposals by that date. We are already looking forward to reading them!

Got a talk idea? We want to see it!

As a community-driven conference, we are interested in a wide variety of topics related to PHP and tools commonly used by PHP developers. There's no reason to not submit a talk: the worst thing that will happen is that we will say "that's an awesome talk, we just can't fit it in!"

We are currently looking for: 24 Regular sessions (50 minutes including Q&A)

Speaker Package:

If you or your employer can cover your expenses, we are happy to extend an offer to be a sponsor of the conference in exchange for the generosity.

MidwestPHP is committed to creating a conference that is inclusive as possible. We want to showcase the talent available in Minnesota along with fostering beginning speakers. We are also happy to welcome international speakers, but the numbers are limited to our ability to cover expenses.
