Thank you for considering Scala Up North for your presentation!
We're thrilled you're here - without our amazing speakers, this conference would not exist.
But first things first - did you read our Code of Conduct? It's important for us that every single attendee does their best to create an inclusive and inviting atmosphere. So here it is, read it once more and think about how you're making this an awesome event.
Then, read on for more details about this CFP.
We are adopting the same Code of Conduct of other community-oriented conferences like NE Scala and PNW Scala:
Nobody likes a jerk, so show respect for those around you.
Scala Up North is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion (or lack thereof). We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form.
All communication should be appropriate for a technical audience including people of many different backgrounds. Sexual language, innuendo, and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks.
Participants violating these rules may be asked to leave without a refund at the sole discretion of the organizers.
Here are some of the topics we're interested in. But don't let this limit you - if you have an idea that doesn't fit any of these, don't hesitate to contact us in advance, or just submit your proposal.
This year we have three different formats:
Long and short presentations will be held on the main room, while workshops will have their own smaller space, with limited seating.
Workshops are expected to be very practical, so attendees get to play with new technologies, libraries or frameworks.
Long and short presentations will be recorded and made publicly available after the conference. Unless you opt out of having your presentation recorded, you grant us a non-revocable license to use and redistribute the recording as we see fit and use it in marketing materials. You remain the sole copyright holder of your presentation, we will not claim your creation as our own and will always provide credit.
Shortly after the end of the CFP (March 24), registered attendees will receive an email inviting them to vote for the presentations they’d like to see in the final program. Attendees can vote for as many presentations as they desire.
Presentations will then be chosen based on votes, with minimal input from the organizers. The organizing committee reserves the right to veto proposals based on topic and content.
Should your presentation be selected (fingers crossed!) we will waive your registration fee. We encourage you to register early - even if you're submitting a proposal - so you can secure a ticket and cast your vote. Don't worry, we'll give you a refund if you already paid for your ticket.
We at Scala Up North strive to promote diversity in the community. However, being a small conference, and to appease to a greater audience, we have chosen to limit proposals and presentations to the English language.
