Call for Submissions

The Open Group builds compelling event programs featuring speakers with a wide range of business and technology expertise, to give our attendees access to the best thought leadership in the industry. The Open Group events offer exposure for speakers’ ideas, expertise, and organizations to high-placed decision-makers within influential organizations worldwide.

The Program Review Team favors end-user perspectives and presenters, and vendor-neutral educational presentations that focus on the real-life applications and case studies. Front-line implementers and end-users are given preference in the speaker selection process. 

The session detail is a critical factor in determining whether your presentation proposal is accepted so spend some time outlining what you plan to cover.

Vendors are encouraged to recruit clients and partners who are front-line implementers or end-users as presenters or co-presenters.

The Open Group is a vendor-neutral and technology-neutral consortium. To respect this neutrality, your presentation should not contain any marketing pitch for products or services.

Speaker Profile
Your submission title should clearly indicate the topic of your presentation.
In a few sentences, explain what your submission will cover.
This is the most important part of your submission for Program Committee review—please be thorough and specific. Some ideas for what to include:  What are the main points you plan to cover? What is new/different/useful about what you’ll be covering? What are the key learning objectives or takeaways for the audience? Specifics are key in this part of your submission—this should not read like a marketing brochure—the voice and expertise of the presenter is extremely important here. This part of your submission is all about helping the Program Committee and the audience understand the depth of your submission and your unique expertise to deliver.  
Is there anything else you want to tell the Program Committee? This might include samples of other content you've published or created.
The following information will help ensure that the attendees clearly understand if they have the appropriate experience to get the most benefit from your submission. Who is your target audience?*
