From the very beginning in 2006, NEXT has been a community-driven event. We always received invaluable input from the NEXT community, helping us to put together a programme that is attractive for participants who invest their precious time and money.
For the last couple of years, we used to issue a Call for Participation, asking for proposals regarding speakers and topics. Now we are going one step further. This year, everyone interested in the NEXT Conference can also vote on each and every proposal, thus giving us a better idea on whom and what you want to see on stage.
How to propose
Basically, you have the options to propose a topic or a speaker. You can either propose yourself as a speaker or someone else you'd like to hear. In both cases, you must also specify a topic. It is perfectly in order to enter multiple proposals, e.g. for a single speaker there could be multiple topics, and for a single topic there could be multiple speakers. But you have to enter separate proposals for each combination of speaker and topic. Learn more.
