Selection process
We consider applications according to the following guidelines:
  • The topic's relevance: you are going to discuss things that participants of the conference find useful not only yesterday but today and in the future. In addition, the topic of your session corresponds to the theme of the conference, and the content matches the stated topic.
  • Your session dives deep into the details of the stated topic: there is no need to talk about yet another Hello World (unless you think it's a new, not widely known, but very promising technology).
  • Originality — there is technical novelty in your session; the content either hasn't been published before or presents a well-known topic / problem in a different light.
  • Practical applicability — the content is important from a practical point of view, you not only cover the existing problems / solutions, but also share your experience.
  • Speaker's expertise and publicity.

In order to submit your application, please, fill in the form below: we kindly ask you to pay as much attention as possible while doing that, because we'll consider your application based on the information provided below. If you require help while preparing your session, we'll do our best to help you make a good one.
If you've already submitted your application, yet haven't heard from us during one week, then something went wrong. In this case, please, contact us via email program@dotnext.ru.
If you’d like to become one of our speakers, please, read the memo for speakers.

Speaker

Session

DotNext 2021 Piter conference goes online.

Our online conferences show that sessions with two to three active participants help engage the audience and keep their attention much better than sessions with one speaker only. Therefore, we now try making most of the talks paired or interactive.

We welcome different types of content *:

Enter the full name, email, or some comment.
The title should be clear and reflect the essence of the session. Remember: brevity is the soul of wit.
Include enough details about your session, but be concise and clearly state: describe technologies that will be covered, purpose of the session (problem and its solutions, etc.), target audience, audience takeaway. Please, don’t insert the technology ads.
About 20 points that represent the main ideas of the session.
