Types of Proposals

STC is looking for presentations, workshops, progressions, lightning talks, etc. Because sessions are 45 minutes long, each progression presenter will do two 20-minute presentations (10 minutes of presenting, 10 minutes of discussion). This format worked very well last year, and we are doing it again. We're aiming to group about six topics to a progression.

STC definitely encourages the submission of more advanced topics, whatever the session type. Our surveys show the majority of attendees want to be challenged and move past the “101” or “Intro to” topics, and this makes sense – most of our attendees have 10 or more years of experience in the profession. Make them think.
