OPEN UNTIL April 21 2019
We invite everyone working on internet applications and infrastructure to submit talks for wwktm 2019.
Web Weekend Kathmandu was started with the motive to connect the tech community in Kathmandu and create a bridge with the international community. Talks from 2018 should give you an idea of the broad range of talks we're interested in. We would like to see anything that fits in the spectrum of but not limited to:
Pick whatever you feel most passionate about. This is your conference!
All talks should/will be
We're very happy to see new speakers and would like to support in the process of the delivering an interesting talk.
All submissions are anonymized, so that there is no bias towards the submitter.
All submissions are reviewed and voted for by the conference organizers. Each talk is rated on a scale from 1 to 5, taking into account the following criteria:
The top submissions are then de-anonymized so we can take speaker details into account. We expect a lot more excellent submissions than we have speaking slots. This process helps us select the best proposals, and hack our own unavoidable biases.
In 2018, we were not in a position to provide financial support to speakers as it was the first time the community had come together to organize a conference of this scale. This year, we plan to support some speakers upto an amount of US$500 that can account for accommodation or economy flight tickets. We have limited support, so if companies can sponsor employees, do select that option so that someone else can make use of the support.
We do provide a format for sponsorship letter which can be submitted if someone can sponsor your trip.
Its trekking season from mid-september onwards. Perfect time to talk tech and visit the mountains. Several Speakers and Attendees from 2018 did treks including to Everest Base Camp and Langtang region.
Warm and welcoming hospitality is guaranteed.
Our call for speakers process and content is highly inspired from jsconf.eu. Big thanks to them for the initial hard work put into the process.
