We have written this guide to offer some advice on how and what to submit for our conference. Please read through this guide BEFORE submitting your abstract, or your full conference speaker submission. If you have questions, CONTACT US FIRST before submitting – we are always happy to chat with you.
Welcome to speaker submissions. We like to keep the low cost of the conference for the attendees, because of this, we do not pay speakers fees. All money for registration is generally used to pay for breakfast, lunches, coffee, snacks, A/V, and so on.
Does the abstract I wrote make me feel like I would attend this session (as if it were presented by someone else). If the answer is no, or not really- then you need to rewrite your submission.
Before you submit you should take a minute to think about your submissions. Even if they are Draft Format (yes we allow draft submissions to be edited later). That said: if you want to submit please keep the following in mind: (read through some of these for ideas)
We have minimum requirements just like every other conference. Consider our themes, every year they change. But most importantly:
Every presentation must be related to Data Vault. Model, Methodology, Architecture, Implementation – all valid. Submissions not related to Data Vault will be automatically rejected.
REMEMBER: your abstract and learning items are sales tools. Without a good abstract (defining what you are presenting, why someone should listen / attend) we do not get the attendees. If we don’t get the attendees, then we cannot hold a conference next year. We would love your help in gaining participants.
We like to record your presentations, and release all presentations (including slides) on video to all conference attendees (free to conference attendees). We will charge for additional access to your conference presentations, and resell the presentations on-line at https://dataVaultAlliance.com to those who did not attend the conference.
The way recording works:
All attendees (including speakers) will have FREE access to the materials for at least 90 days.
BY SUBMITTING THIS FORM, YOU EITHER ACCEPT AND GRANT US FULL PERMISSION FOR RECORDING, OR YOU CHOOSE TO OPT OUT. Acceptance of this form is equivalent to a digital signature, and is binding. *opting out of recording is your choice.
We cannot pay you or share revenue with you without a legal agreement. If you allow us to record you, AND you do not sign any legal agreements, then we own the rights free & clear to record and distribute the recording as we see fit, along with setting the fees.
You may choose to have your own laptop with all the software setup, along with any slides/presentation. We will handle the recording of your presentation (slides, software, and all) professionally captured. Nothing is required on your end.
PowerPoint and KeyNote are accepted. Please ensure your presentations are provided ONE WEEK BEFORE the conference begins!! We will use a standard presenter’s computer for the setup. You can always submit multiple versions of your slides ahead of time for review, we would be happy to have them – and help you with them before you present!
You MUST upload the content to our box.com shared folders. You can upload the content as many times as you wish.
