The RuhrJS is an annual, community-driven JavaScript conference and the first of its kind in the metropolitan Ruhr Area in Germany. First held in 2016, the RuhrJS brings together an international line-up of renowned speakers with 200 JavaScript developers from all over the globe, creating a forum for developers to connect with companies and one another.

We aim to foster a vibrant developer community and thereby strengthen our region’s role in the tech industry. Our vision is to contribute to the digital transition of the Ruhr Area. We want to do our bit in making the region more attractive for everyone who is enthusiastic about JavaScript programming.

We take particular pride in our diversity program. With the help of our sponsors, we can provide around 20% of our tickets to people from underrepresented groups every year.

We are happy to welcome you in October, 13th and 14th in Bochum!

CFP Description

Hello friends and JavaScript enthusiasts from all over the world!

RuhrJS 2018 will take place on October 13th and 14th 2018, so it’s time to invite everyone who would like to present a topic related to JavaScript. We would love to read your abstract, so we encourage you to submit a paper!

If you don’t want to present a topic, but know someone who would be a perfect fit, you can nominate them by sending their name and contact details to:

If you are highly interested in hearing about a particular topic, you can nominate the topic in the same way and we will do our best to find a matching speaker.

All talks will be 30 minutes long and will be held in English. If you are a first time speaker or nervous about your presentation skills, we will of course try to help with that, and if you would like, we will connect you to an experienced mentor.

The abstracts will be anonymized (names, personal information and every connection to you in your abstract will be blacked out on your submission) - only title and plain abstract will be used in the decision making process.
