**This document is a draft.**
When you are ready to submit your proposal, send your submission via
email to <firstname.lastname@example.org> by **September 30**, 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 2021);
- 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:
By submitting this proposal, I agree that my presentation at
EmacsConf 2021 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
All kinds of people use Emacs for all kinds of things. We would love
it if EmacsConf 2021 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
