Call for Proposals – THATCamp Tallahassee

We are now welcoming short proposals for our THATCamp Tallahassee Unconference. Proposals should be short (less than 300 words) and should explain the topic and the format of the presentation. Common formats for sessions include:

  • Tech skills workshops
  • Discussions and roundtables
  • Presentations (with ample time for discussion)

If possible, you should include information on the type of participation required from the session attendees (e.g. will they be expected to speak, provide feedback, learn, etc.). We will also be accepting proposals for lightning talks, which will be conducted at the end of lunch.

In order to submit a proposal, please register and then login to your account ( once your registration has been approved. Once you have logged in, you will see your dashboard, which should include a link to “posts.” To write a proposal, add a new post, provide a descriptive title, and author your proposal in the body. If you want to, you can add categories to your post by selecting topics from the sidebar.

Once you have finished authoring your post hit “Publish” (please know that all proposals will be visible to the public). On the day of the event, we will determine the schedule based on the proposals that are on the website. You will also have the opportunity to propose new topics during the opening session, so don’t worry if you don’t get a post together in time. You can also author posts all the way up to the day of the event.

If you have any questions, please contact Sarah Stanley.
