Talk Submission

AI NEXTCon Conference does not have a formal call for papers. Instead, we reach out and invite speakers. However, we do have the following gudelines for additional speakers to submit their talk ideas. The track hosts use the guidelines to assess speakers and talks:

Change and Innovation

Will your talk deliver a change in how the attendees will want to work, or knowledge of an important innovation that they will be recommending on their next project or to their peers?

Content of general Interest

Your presentation should be of general of interest to a broad audience, and isn’t tied to using a specific product. Product-agnostic talks attract a larger crowd and are much better received by our attendees.

Speaker bio

This is a key tool we use on the conference site and within the conference guides, to give attendees a quick understanding of why this speaker matters. Focus the description on your technical achievements, not necessarily your job title. Examples: Creator of Javascript, CTO of Helpio, Netflix Cloud Director of Engineering, etc...


There is no formal deadline, we close the submissions once all the speaking slots have been filled out. If your presentation is selected, the Program Committee will get in touch with you. If you are interested, please submit your proposal here: Click , AND send email to admin AT atiglobal DOT org
