Speaker Applications Close!

Speaker applications for WordCamp Europe are now closed. We have almost 80 applications and around 20 speaking slots available. That means there’s some fierce competition for those slots.

We would love to be able to accept everyone but of course we’re not going to be able to. However, here are some of the things we’ll be looking for when we put together the final schedule:

  • diversity of subject matter. We’ve got to have content that appeals to developers, designers, bloggers, business owners, and everyone in between.
  • diversity of geographical location and gender. The final schedule will represent the WordPress community worldwide, while particularly showcasing WordPressers in Europe.
  • novelty – is the presentation saying something new? Or saying something old in a new way?
  • relevance – is the content relevant to WordPress and WordPress users today?

We’ll also be looking at videos, checking out past slides, and generally scrutinising each application to make sure that the programme for WordCamp Europe is as good as it can be.

Thank you to everyone who applied. You’ll be hearing from us in a couple of weeks!
