+**This document is a draft.**
+
+When you are ready to submit your proposal, send your submission via
+email to <emacsconf-submit@gnu.org> by **October 7**, including at
+minimum these essential information:
+
+- Your (preferred) name;
+
+- the title of your talk/session;
+
+- your preferred talk/session [[format|cfp#formats]], and whether you
+ would be flexible about your allotted time slot (whether a shorter
+ format would also work for your talk, and if you would be okay with
+ presenting a shorter talk if necessary, to allow more people a
+ chance to present at EmacsConf 2020);
+
+- an abstract of your talk (500 words or less);
+
+- any potential times during the conference days in which you may be
+ unavailable and/or unable to present; and
+
+- your agreement with the speaker release for EmacsConf (see below).
+
+
+Please use the following template for your submission email,
+filling it out with information about you and your proposal:

+Speaker release:
+
+ By submitting this proposal, I agree that my presentation at
+ EmacsConf 2020 is subject to the following terms and conditions:
+
+ The EmacsConf organizers may capture audio and video (a "Recording")
+ of my presentation and any associated materials, which may include
+ slides, notes, transcripts, and prerecording(s) of my presentation
+ that I provide to the EmacsConf organizers.
+
+ I authorize the EmacsConf organizers to distribute, reproduce,
+ publicly display, and prepare derivative works of the Recording and
+ any derivative works of the Recording (the "Licensed Materials")
+ under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0
+ International (CC BY-SA 4.0) license.
+
+ I grant to the EmacsConf organizers permission to use my name,
+ likeness, and biographic information in association with their use
+ of the Licensed Materials under the above license.
+
+ I represent that I have the authority to grant the above license to
+ the EmacsConf organizers. If my presentation incorporates any
+ material owned by third parties, I represent that the material is
+ sublicensable to the EmacsConf organizers or that my use of them is
+ fair use.
+```
+
+
+All kinds of people use Emacs for all kinds of things. We would love
+it if EmacsConf 2020 could highlight interesting perspectives and
+reflect the diversity of our community. If you know someone who might
+have a good idea for a talk, please reach out to them and encourage
+them to submit a proposal. Many people (especially from
+underrepresented groups such as women, people of colour, and
+non-developers) might not consider themselves expert enough to share
+their thoughts. If you let them know that you value their knowledge
+and maybe even suggest something that you think others would like to
+hear more about, they may realize that they have something worth
+sharing and that we would love to hear from them.
+
+This year, we are experimenting with an anonymized submission process.
+Identifying information will be removed from submissions by a
+conference organizer who will not participate in talk selection. The
+anonymized submissions will then be reviewed by a selection committee.
+We hope this will help reduce bias and encourage contribution. We
+look forward to hearing from you (and the people you want to nudge to
+speak)!
