Provide sufficient detail in your submission to enable the reviewers to understand your proposal and clearly identify what an attendee will gain from attending your session. You should include the following information in the following parts of the submission system:
||The details of each of the presenters.
||Title of the presentation (please keep it brief and specific)
||In your abstract you should provide enough details for the reviewers to understand and assess your proposal so ensure that you include the following:
- Content: Explain what the talk is about in plain English in 2 to 3 paragraphs;
- Description: Explain in detail how your presentation will be structured, what methodology and technology you will introduce, what examples you will use, etc;
- Learnings: Detail the learning objectives for attendees (what will they learn or take away from the talk?)
- Experience / Background: Please provide a brief overview of your technical and speaking experience. Please provide a link to previous presentations, videos, papers or accolades;
- Ancillary material: A description of any supporting material (if required), which you will provide before the conference and that we will distribute to all participants via the YOW! West website — this may be text in PDF format and/or code as a compressed file;
- References: Is there generally available material that attendees may use after the presentation to deepen their understanding of the presented topic material? If so, please list that material.
||List any keywords that will help the program committee and attendees categorise your presentation.
||The type of presentation you are proposing:
- Talk: a conventional conference presentation of 45 minutes including introductions and questions. They are conducted in a lecture format, providing a focused explanation on a single topic.
- Case Study: a short-form conference presentation of 30 minutes including introductions and questions. They are conducted in a lecture format, providing the ability to share a personal or organisational experience or story.
- Demo: a short-form presentation of 30 minutes including introductions and questions. They are conducted in a lecture format, providing the ability to demonstrate a product or code.
||Indicate the level / background of the audience your talk is aimed at. YOW typically is for intermediate or advanced level talks rather than novice level:
Nothing upsets an audience more than a speaker that stands on stage blatantly promoting his or her company, product or achievements. Please keep the content of your talk on-topic and do not use this speaking opportunity as a sales pitch.
Depending on the number of submissions or the content of your submission, the program committee may ask if you would be prepared to accept a different session length.
