The [Call for Proposals] for EmacsConf 2019 talks is now open, until
*August 31, 2019*.

We are back again this year, after a much too long hiatus, and we’re
calling for your participation!  EmacsConf is the conference about the
joy of Emacs, Emacs Lisp, and memorizing key sequences.

We welcome speakers of *all backgrounds* and *all levels of experience*,
including newcomers submitting a proposal to give their first talk!

2 Talk Formats

  The following are the main formats for EmacsConf 2019 talks:

  - *10 minutes* (Lightning talk): Quickly present a cool project,
    concept, or trick!

  - *20 minutes* (Standard talk): Introduce the audience to a new Emacs
    mode, concept, or just talk about something not necessarily shiny
    and new but that you find really neat nonetheless.

  - *45 minutes* (Extended talk): Take your time going more in depth,
    and/or do a demo!  Extended talks are a great way of really
    educating the audience about something you enjoy.

  Other session formats such as tutorials and workshops could be
  arranged as well.  If you are interested in these or other kinds of
  sessions, let us know and we can try to arrange it!

  Keynote speaker(s) for EmacsConf 2019 will be introduced in a future

3 Topic Ideas

  Not sure what to give a talk about?  You might find some neat ideas on
  the [ideas] page (feel free to add yours there too)!  If you’re still
  not sure, come by our IRC channel `#emacsconf' on `irc.freenode.net'
  and say hi.  You can join the chat using [your favourite IRC client]
  or the [freenode webchat].

  A great way to write a strong proposal is to start by exploring the
  programs from previous years: [2015], [2013].

4 Submission

  Once you’re ready to submit your proposal, the [submit] page has the
  instructions on how to submit your talk.

  We are committed to increasing the participation of speakers belonging
  to groups traditionally underrepresented at free software conferences,
  including women and people of colour.  If you’re comfortable sharing
  demographic information, please include them in your submission email,
  but your proposal will not be judged negatively if you leave them out.

  organizing the conference like planning the sessions or help setting
  up the infrastructure, see our [planning] page and come say hi to us
