The Semantic Tech & Business Conference is the foremost conference series on semantic technologies held each year, and covers a wide range of topics. Competition for speaking slots has increased each year, and unfortunately we often have to turn down many excellent proposals because of limitations on the agenda. In an effort to deal with this high demand, we are changing the format of some speaking opportunities in 2012.

Reviewed and Invited Presentation formats

  • Full Conference Sessions – 45 minutes
  • Half-Conference Sessions – 30 minutes
  • Half-Day Tutorials – 3 hours

Presentation Opportunities for All Conference Registrants

  • Lightning Talks – 5 minutes (Registration required)
  • Sponsored Session – Product/Company Showcase

These formats are designed to optimize the mix of educational presentations, case studies and discussion panels, as well as provide more opportunities for product developers and entrepreneurs to bring their work to the attention of customers, business partners and investors. A more complete explanation of these formats is available below.
