Agile Portugal 2011
Call for Speakers

We encourage you to report and share your experience on a topic of your expertise, by submitting a high-quality proposal for one of the following types of sessions:
Talks — 20min presentations (+5min questions) about a topic of your expertise;
Lightning talks — 5min presentation, inspiring and innovative;
Posters — an idea, tool, or research work presented informally and interactively.

We are looking for proposals of 20min talks, about exciting ideas, research projects, experience reports, or lessons learned, from experienced speakers on the relevant topics for the audience of the conference.

Lightning talks
If you have something to share about agility to the other participants of the conference (ideas, fears, questions, concerns, etc), you are encouraged to submit a 5min presentation, engage others to follow you, and get immediate feedback about it.

This year's edition will feature a poster track, aimed at presenting in an informal and interactive setting an ongoing or concluded work, be it a tool, prototype, idea, or research. This work does not need to be complete, but should have enough substance to be reviewed.

Open Space
In addition to the scheduled sessions, Open Space sessions will take place throughout all the conference, providing a live and flexible place to share questions, talk to the experts, demonstrate software and techniques, and experiment with Agile practices and ideas. Its schedule will be defined during the conference, by you and the other participants, and will be continuously evolved as new topics emerge during the event.

Speaker compensation
Accepted talks and posters will be granted free admission to both days of the event. Accepted lightning-talks will receive an exclusive Agile Portugal gift.
