GoRuCo 2012: Call for Proposals
The Gotham Ruby Conference (GoRuCo), a one-day, single-track event in New York City, is now accepting proposal papers at http://bit.ly/goruco-2012-cfp.
This year we will be accepting two talk formats, a 45 minute full-length talk or a 10 minute micro-talk. Both talks should include time for questions and discussion.
All speakers will receive free attendance to the event. In addition those speakers selected for a full-length talk will receive:
* A $300 honorarium.
* A $600 travel reimbursement if you live outside of the tri-state region.
All proposals must specify exactly who will be presenting. For example, we will not accept proposals from companies unless they specify who will be presenting on behalf of the company. Presentations may be given by more than one person, but multiple speakers will split the honorarium and travel reimbursement.
GoRuCo believes in highlighting local talent. We reserve at least two slots for local speakers. Individual talks and panels will be considered local if at least half of the participants are from the tri-state region - that is, within typical commuting distance of Manhattan. In the past, these slots have been less competitive than the other talk slots, so if you live in the tri-state region we strongly urge you to submit a proposal.
We will be videotaping all the talks and making this video freely available online. You should be okay with this if you are submitting a talk.
If you have any questions, please email [address removed].
Please submit all proposals at http://bit.ly/goruco-2012-cfp by 11:59:59.0 PM ET on April 26th, 2012.
