Anonymous Submissions

To keep the submission process as fair as possible, proposals will be kept anonymous. The Australian Agile community, reviewers and chairs will be able to view, comment on, and offer feedback or suggestions on all submissions, but nobody will be able to see the author’s name or company.

This means that your submission will be reviewed purely based on the content submitted. We suggest that you focus on addressing the stream criteria, have a clear outline of ideas and examples you will present, describe how you will use your 40 minute slot, and plainly state the learning outcomes for delegates.

It is better to submit early so you have a greater chance of receiving feedback from the community and iterating your proposal. This will give you the best chance of being accepted as a speaker for Agile Australia 2015.

Please limit yourself to a total of three (3) submissions. This includes submissions where you are the second speaker or ‘co-presenter’.

All submissions will remain anonymous until the chairs for each stream have finalised their shortlist.

Session Format

The duration of every session is a total of 40 minutes. This 40 minute slot includes an introduction and thank you by the MC, and time for questions if you choose.

There could be up to five sessions running concurrently. Each session may have up to 200 in the audience. Attendees do not sign up to a particular session prior to the conference – they vote with their feet! So please ensure your session description is enticing while also accurately describing the presentation you will give.

Theme

Agile Australia 2015 is themed The Art of Simplicity. Simplicity is not just art, it is also science requiring discipline. Your proposal should address the conference theme, showing how simplicity is achieved, how to maximise the work not done, how to strip back processes?

Streams

The Agile Australia program will feature FIVE content streams. We ask that you consider how your proposal meets the needs of these streams and also speaks to The Art of Simplicity theme. Please carefully consider what each stream is looking for and be sure to select the right stream for your proposal.
