Step-by-step Guide

So, you’re interested in speaking at GHC 17. What should you do? We’ve created this guide to help you through the process.

First steps…

Step 1: Learn all you can about the Grace Hopper Celebration. Check out last year’s schedulesponsors and award winners for inspiration.

Step 2: View all of our conference tracks and decide which one you’re most interested in. Our conference is built around different tracks, which are thematic areas with dedicated chairs and committee members.

Step 3: Once you’ve chosen your track, it’s time to pick a session format. We offer a variety, so you can choose one that fits your speaking style and topic. You may only submit one proposal per session type.

Step 4: Apply to speak. Applications close March 8, 2017 at 5 p.m. PT.

Step 5: Wait to hear from us. We expect to announce accepted speakers on May 10, 2017. Learn more about our review process here.
