XRDC solicits proposals from speakers with deep industry expertise and innovative ideas from a particular niche or emerging areas of AR, VR and MR. Submission criteria and guidelines are available below.
If you want to submit, please take note of the following:
XRDC does not accept product or vendor-related submissions. If your talk is a thinly-veiled advertisement for a new product, technology or service your company is offering, please do not apply. If you would like to publicize a product, please contact our sales team for information on exhibiting and other vendor opportunities, including sponsored sessions in our partners track.
All Presentations Must be Submitted by Original Authors
Currently, we only accept submissions by the original authors of the presentations. PR firms, speaking relation firms, and all other parties who are not direct authors of submitted presentations are discouraged from submitting a proposal on behalf of their clients/speakers. We require direct contact with presenters to expedite questions during the submission review process.
The Advisory Board will review and rate submissions based on the following criteria:
Conference attendees are generally very intelligent. The material they're looking for is inspirational and/or provides a concrete, applicable takeaway that is not obvious. Attendees expect excellence from our speakers. After your presentation, they will evaluate it based on delivery, knowledge of the topic and the visuals presented.
Preparation is one of the most important factors in delivering a successful talk at XRDC. Please keep the following in mind when you propose to speak:
Please note we are here to help you. If you have ANY questions you think we need to cover on this area of our website, please email Megan Bundy.
