In-Memory Computing Summit 2020 Call for Speakers

In-memory computing is powering digital transformations and providing a path to next generation applications for use cases such as web-scale applications, Digital Integration Hubs, the Internet of Things (IoT), and Big Data analytics. At the In-Memory Computing Summit, attendees can learn about the in-memory computing technologies now available as well as best practices from users and practitioners.

How to Participate

Contribute to the in-memory computing conversation by submitting a speaking proposal on one of these topics or a topic of likely relevance for the community:

  • User stories and business use cases
  • What's new and upcoming in in-memory computing software and hardware
  • Best design practices and performance optimizations
  • High availability, clustering, and replication
  • Monitoring, management, automation tools and best practices
  • Streaming data
  • In-memory computing in the cloud

Submission Tips

  • Include your presentation details in a concise and clear way. Your submission doesn’t need to be extensive but it should be well thought out. Clearly state:
    1. Technologies that will be covered
    2. The purpose of the talk (problem, solution, etc.)
    3. Your target audience
    4. What the audience will learn from your session
  • Make your speaker biography as informative as your abstract. The Conference Committee is highly receptive to new speakers but you need to let them know who you are.
  • Proposals should not be sales pitches. Attendees are looking for in-depth technical or business talks, not sales or product pitches.
  • Limit the scope of the talk to 50 minutes. It is better to be thorough and cover less material than to cover a lot of material in a superficial way.
  • Do not assume your company name buys you credibility. If you propose talking about something important that you know well because of what your company does, detail that in the description.
  • If you are submitting a speaking proposal on behalf of another individual, make it clear who will be speaking and provide the contact information of the proposed speaker.
  • Explain why people will want to attend your talk. Tell the Conference Committee if your topic is gaining new attention or it is critical to modern business or it is a topic that everyone should understand in more depth.
  • Make your presentation stand out by submitting an original proposal that focuses on real world use cases, relevant examples, and knowledge transfer.
