Submit Session Proposal

Drupal Camp Asheville 2020 Online Edition - July 10th-12th

View sessions submitted for this year's camp.

Submission Information

This year we're doing two rounds of session selections. We hope this will encourage more people to propose their sessions earlier in the year, giving us more time to promote the camp's content!

Session selection schedule:

  • April 23rd - Deadline for early session proposals
  • April 30th - First round of sessions are selected and announced
  • May 27th - Deadline for all session proposals
  • June 4th - All sessions are selected and posted to the camp schedule

Selected speakers will receive a code to redeem a free general admission ticket to camp.

By submitting a session to Drupalcamp Asheville, you agree to the following:

  • That you will follow the Code of Conduct.
  • If selected you will attend the camp (July 11, 2020) and present your session.
  • If you need to cancel your attendance and/or presentation, you will notify the camp organizers as soon as possible so that they can arrange for a substitution.
  • That your presentation may be recorded and made available online.
  • That you will not include any proprietary material in your session that you do not have the legal right to include.

When submitting your session, let us know the following:

  • Who is your ideal audience member, the person who would get the most out of your session?
  • What do you expect people to be able to take away from your session?
  • How much and what kind of technical knowledge do people need going in to your session?

  • After your session, continue the conversation in chat or another virtual room with attendees to answer additional questions.
  • Speakers should plan to arrive in their virtual room at least 10 minutes before the session is schedules to set up and practice broadcasting.
  • You should have:
    • Your computer with plenty of power
    • A reliable internet connection
    • Your presentation/slides prepared to present
    • Conference presentation software. More on this later, we are still researching the exact software we will use to hold the virtual camp.

If this session is selected we will be posting and talking about it on various social media sites. Please provide some example posts to help us better articulate the value of the session to potential attendees.

If you have presented this session another time, please provide some details about when and where you have presented this session. If there is a recording available online, we'd love to see a link to it!

Having presented this session previously doesn not disqualify the session at all. It is just helpful to know when building a balanced schedule.
