Speaker Memorial

Procedure for Considering Applications

Program Committee members will acknowledge all submissions within a few days. Submissions will be reviewed for quality and relevance, and the acceptance decision will be emailed to the corresponding author.

When you submit your paper, you give the conference committee the rights to publish your articles in conference proceedings and reference them in conference materials such as booklets, newsletters, websites, etc.

Please pay attention! You have more chances to get into the program of TechWriter Days if your talk has not previously sounded at other specialised conferences or if this talk was substantially updated and revised in the light of feedback received at the events. 

Speakers (authors of the regular and lightning talks, roundtables, and workshops) will get free passes to the event: one free pass per accepted paper.

Authors whose reports have not passed a competition can participate in the conference on the price for the registration date at the TechWriter Days website.

In the case of several co-authors, only one speaker will get the free pass.

In case the speaker is declined for participation in the regular talk format, the lightning talk format can be offered.

How to make a good talk

Everyone has own understanding of how to make a good talk. Below are just basic principles that must be kept in mind during preparation.

  1. The talk must be interesting for listeners. This item is from the repertoire of the Captain-obvious, but it does not negate its importance.
  2. Our conference - for technical writers!
  3. Any talk is interesting as long the audience understands the ultimate goal. Even if the talk is dealing with unknown technologies, approaches, methods. If you understand the meaning of the action, you try to grasp the process because there is always a chance that you will face such a task in your life.
  4. Do not expect that the meaning is evident to an audience. Most of the listeners do not know the nature of your tasks and the challenges of your platform. It is better to explain it clearly from the beginning.
  5. The talk should not go into private affairs in a specific technology. Often, such depth involves the lack of obvious practical value for the listeners, even for your colleagues on technology. The purpose is not clear.
  6. Add practical cases to your talks. Listeners will be grateful to you.
  7. Remember the Death by PowerPoint.
