With all of the commotion that took place with the release of tickets to The Eleventh HOPE on Monday (we've already sold close to half of our capacity), you may not have been aware that we also released a Call For Participation, which you can read here.
Good speakers are an essential part of the HOPE conferences, and each time we do this, the variety and creative ideas of our many presenters are what make HOPE truly shine. Unlike most other conferences, we open the door to all kinds of different ideas and approaches to the hacker world. A typical speaker lineup may consist of a college professor, a 13-year-old kid, an activist, and a spy - all in a row. (Of course, it's much more diverse than that.) What matters to us is that you have something to say, regardless of who you are, where you're from, and what your experience is. This is the place for new ideas and approaches. With over a hundred slots to fill, your words have a great chance at being included.
Full instructions on how to submit your ideas on both talks and workshops can be found on The Eleventh HOPE website, in addition to many other ways of getting involved. Whether as a speaker, workshop coordinator, volunteer, or attendee, we look forward to seeing you at The Eleventh HOPE in July!
The Eleventh HOPE will be held on July 22-24, 2016 at the Hotel Pennsylvania in New York City.
