Call for Papers 2018
It’s a great pleasure to invite you to WebCamp Zagreb 2018, a tech conference devoted to web development & design, which will be held on October 5th & 6th 2018 in Zagreb, Croatia.
This is a call to participate: help us build a great conference once again by becoming a speaker. With great opportunities to network with other developers & designers the most important part of every great conference are expert talks.
Feel free to submit all of your ideas, we have a diverse range of interests so all submissions are welcome. Prior experience is not a prerequisite, we welcome first timers.
While it’s not important which technology, language or tool you use, let your suggestions be interesting and fresh to a broad audience. Just make the talk web related (even if it’s a long shot). We love first hand experience talks.
Talks should be of a technical nature, not promotional. Try to cover both good and bad sides and keep the presentation as objective as possible. If you want to present a specific project, give us an inside perspective. Just keep in mind that we’re looking for tech talks, not sales pitches.
Here are some ideas to get you started: application architecture, hosting, cloud solutions, software development methodology, application testing, development/design tools, client and server side development, mobile web, specific technologies/tools/libraries, design, UI/UX, design methodology, SQL or NoSQL databases and data storages, tech experience you love or dislike, managing a web team or an organization, collaboration tools, distributed or remote teamwork experiences.
You may choose between a 25 and 45 minutes talk, which includes the Q&A at the end. This limitation will be strictly enforced to keep the conference schedule on track. It’s recommended to limit your talk to 20 or 40 minutes to allow 5 minutes for Q&A. If your talk can fit both durations, please submit it twice.
When deciding on talk duration, take into account that there are 8 slots for 45 minute talks, and 20 slots for 25 minute talks, and therefore a 25 minute talk is more likely to be accepted.
Please submit up to 3 of your finest talks to keep the load on our talks committee manageable. All talks must be given in English.
Our speaker package includes:
- A full conference pass
- Lunch and other activities included in the regular conference
- Accommodation and travel expenses for speakers remote to the area*
- Speaking and presentation training workshops on 2018-09-22 and 2018-09-29

* For speakers who live more than 100km away from Zagreb, we cover three nights in an apartment (Thursday to Sunday) and up to €200 in travel expenses.
By submitting a talk, you agree to our Code of conduct which will be firmly enforced.
