About the Selection Process
Each year, we receive a high volume of applications, far outnumbering the limited slots available over the three days. Therefore, please understand that you may not be successful this time around, regardless of how many times you have presented at the conference in the past.
The presentation and programme selection process in undertaken in stages. Once all of the proposals have been reviewed by our conference programme team, each will be ranked in terms of what they offer for our audience i.e. learning, interaction, knowledge level and how attractive the topics are likely to be.
We aim to have a good mix of new and returning presenters. New presenters do require further review to ascertain the relevance of their skills and experience.
The length of each session will be determined based on the content and experience level of the presenter. The majority of the slots will be 90 minutes with very few lasting 3 hours. This is due to providing as much variety and options as possible for our attendees.
