RICON West CFP Officially Open
Posted on Jun 3, 2013

The CFP for RICON West, happening this October in San Francisco, is officially open. We'll be accepting proposals until July 1st. To submit a proposal send an email to [email protected] with “RICON West CFP” in the Subject line and the following:

  • Your name
  • Your proposed talk title
  • Your abstract
  • Your bio
  • Anything else you deem necessary

Who should be submitting talks? RICONs are all about Riak and distributed systems theory and practice. If you and your team are solving problems in/around those areas, we want to hear from you. Take a look at RICON West 2012 or the recently-concluded RICON East 2013 for an idea of what “Riak and distributed systems theory and practice” encompasses.

A few things to keep in mind when putting together your talk proposal:

  • Each talk is 45 minutes. How you use this is up to you.
  • Basho will be paying round trip airfare and two nights lodging for all accepted speakers (in addition to providing your pass)
  • All talks will be live-streamed and recorded for posterity. If you're not comfortable with this, please don't submit a talk.

We're looking forward to hearing from you. Until then, check out the growing-list of confirmed speakers and grab yourself a ticket before the early-bird price disappears.

Thanks for being a part of RICON.
