Call for education proposals

Speak at A’18

Speak at A'18

What to expect

Attendees consistently rate our speakers as a top highlight of their conference experience.

During the first round of review, we’ll evaluate how well proposals reflect emerging trends, new ideas, engaging learning, and knowledge level in support of our curricular framework.

Proposals that advance to the second round will be evaluated for learner outcomes, speaker expertise, attendee value, and 2017 speaker scores, where applicable.

We’ll provide feedback on every proposal, accepted or not, by November 1.


  • August 1: Call for proposals closes at 11:59pm PDT
  • September 8: Notification of acceptance into second round
  • September 27: Second round detail submissions due
  • November 1: Notification of final acceptance
