Local speakers are invited to attend all conference days and workshops. Speakers who require special accommodation are requested to contact us.
For international speakers, we will cover airfare, accommodation in a Tel-Aviv hotel, and travel to/from the airport. International speakers are requested to deliver a workshop; compensation for the workshop will be determined according to the number of attendees who sign up. Additional details on the compensation structure will be provided to selected speakers.
Speakers will be notified at least 3 months before the conference. The earlier you submit, the earlier we might be able to confirm your sessions, even before the CFP closes.
Speakers will be required to perform a dry run of their sessions in person or online, several weeks prior to the conference. At that time, you will also be expected to have the final version of your slides and hands-on labs available. We deliver the slides to workshop attendees, which is why you will be requested to send them to us in advance. More details will be provided in the speaker contract that you’ll sign if your session is accepted.
