Conference Session Proposal Form

We invite you to submit a session proposal for Internet World, the world's largest Internet, intranet and Web conference and exhibition. Our audiences are leading business professionals who use the Internet to run companies, sell products and services, publish ideas and information, develop new hardware and software, and communicate with their customers and employees and the hardware, software and service firms that support them. They come to our conferences to hear about the latest trends and advances in their fields, to meet other Internet professionals, and to gain insights into the development of the Net as a commercial tool.

Requirements for Speakers

  1. Provide a short, relevant BIOGRAPHY: (80-120 words)

  2. TEACHING EXPERIENCE: The ability to communicate complex ideas, to compel the attention of your audience, and to provide comprehensive information about your subject are key qualities for an Internet World speaker. Please describe your teaching experience in a college or university setting, executive education and training environment, commercial conference appearance or other public speaking venue.

  3. KNOWLEDGE OF THE SUBJECT: All Internet World speakers must have in-depth knowledge of their subjects and a willingness to share their perspectives as well as their data. Please describe your experience as a developer, published author, hands-on practitioner, industry analyst or senior executive working in your subject area.

  4. IMPARTIALITY: No Internet World speaker may use a conference session for commercial sales pitches, self promotion or unfair criticism of a competitor. Strongly held opinions, well-founded debates and comprehensive information about products and processes advance the educational process; sales pitches do not and are unacceptable. Please disclose your interest in your subject area as a vendor, developer, evangelist or marketer.
