Speaker submissions to Agile Australia 2016 are now closed.
Being a speaker at Agile Australia 2016 is your opportunity to connect with an engaged audience of your peers by sharing your story and experience. Tales of your successes and failures; what has worked and what hasn’t – could all be valuable steps in moving us Towards the Agile Country!
We suggest that you read the information on this page carefully before submitting your proposal. If you have any questions about submitting please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Every year over 200 proposals are submitted via an open anonymous submission system to create a truly outstanding conference program. Usually about 35-40 proposals are invited to be part of the final program.
Submitters (and their replies to comments) remain anonymous to all. We ask submitters to try and keep their submission and comments free of any identifying information. Please note that your contact information, job title, company, referees and previous experience which you are asked to provide for is not visible to reviewers. Please ensure that you do not disclose your workplace in your proposal’s title. If you believe your proposal makes more sense with your workplace in the title ‘e.g How we used Kanban to revolutionise [company name]’s culture’ – please omit your workplace’s name to begin with. If your proposal is accepted into the final program you may add your workplace and any other identifying information back into your title after the reviewing process is complete.
The identity of shortlisted submissions is only revealed to advisors and chairs involved in the final program meeting. This meeting ensures only one submission per person is accepted and ensures no constituency is over or under represented in the final conference program.
In 2016 submissions are for 40 minute presentation style sessions.
All 40 minute sessions include an introduction and thank you by the MC and any Q&A. Presentation rooms are set up theatre style and audiences range from 100-300. Please note that it is possible for sponsors to purchase vendor presentations, which are labelled as such on the program. Open Space will run over the two days and submissions for Lightning Talks will be open down the track to all those who submit. The Workshop days are to be held the day after the conference on Wednesday 22nd in Melbourne and Thursday 23rd in Sydney.

If you find yourself in need of some extra guidance to help your submission be the best that it can be, you can request assistance from our submission doctor. The doctor’s role is to work outside the reviewing system, offering advice and answering questions to those that need it on a one-to-one basis. Email – email@example.com.
We welcome your feedback and questions on the proposals submitted by others!
