Call for papers (CFPs) at OpenJS World conference now open for all JavaScript fans

By January 10, 2022Blog, OpenJS World

We are excited to announce that we’re accepting speaking submissions for OpenJS World 2022, the JavaScript conference you won’t want to miss! This year we will host a hybrid in-person and virtual event, and we’re closely watching the state of travel, health, and safety recommendations amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. The global event is happening June 6-10, 2022, in Austin, TX, and the call for papers (CFP) is OPEN! You can submit your OpenJS World talk here: The CFP deadline is Feb 14, 2022.

Quality content is an essential priority for the OpenJS World program committee, and we want to help people get a leg up in submitting thoughtful and relevant content. 

While it’s never our intention to provide strict directives on preparing your speaking submission, we have some general guidelines to help you craft the best submission possible. 

As you get started, here are three things to consider before submitting your proposal:

  1. What are you hoping to get from your presentation?
  2. What do you expect the audience to gain from your presentation?
  3. How will your presentation help better the open source ecosystem?

There are plenty of ways to present projects and technologies without focusing on company-specific efforts. Remember the three tips we mentioned when writing your proposal as a simple guide for yourself. Try to think of ways to connect your topic to attendees’ interests while still giving yourself room to share your experiences, educate the community about an issue, or generate interest in a project. This year’s presentation topics will include:

  • Testing
  • Automation / CI/CD
  • Security
  • Development
  • Community Building
  • Performance
  • General
