Call for Speakers

The key to a great conference is great presentations.

The call for presentation proposals is now closed, but you may still propose a 5-minute lightning talk. (Late presentation proposals will be considered on a space-available basis.) Each form is described in a section below.

Presentation proposals from end users, analysts, researchers, and consultants in one of the areas that follow are especially welcome, but we will happily consider all proposals. We do aim for a "no sales pitch" policy to discourage product focused presentations although in order to accommodate sponsors, who make the symposium financially viable, we are reserving abbreviated presentations slots for higher-level sponsors.

Note that we expect to receive MANY presentation proposals and will be able to accept only a fraction of the talks proposed. We will not accept any basic, "This is Sentiment Analysis" type talks.

Please submit your proposal by Friday, January 20, 2012. We will aim to notify you by January 27 whether your proposal is accepted. Selected speakers -- one per presentation (except lightning talks) -- will receive a free conference pass.

Lightning Talks/Start-Up Showcase

If you're from a solution provider -- a start-up or established vendor -- and haven't presented a sentiment-symposium lightning talk in the last year, please consider submitting a proposal. Lightning talks are 5-minute presentations/demos of your sentiment analysis technology, solution, or service. Just use the form to tell us who you are and what you propose to demonstrate. Click here to proceed to the proposal form.

NB to present a lightning talk you must be a paid attendee or sponsor, but you are welcome to register after you talk has been accepted.

Thank you!
