TEK X Blog:
Getting accepted
November 18, 2009 @ 14:39:35

With the deadline for the Call for Papers for the TEK X conference quickly approaching (November 23rd!) Cal Evans has posted some last-minute tips to help improve your submission for a better chance at acceptance.

As the Call for Papers progresses for TEKX, it dawns on me that I have the distinct privilege of having participated in the Call and Acceptance process of all three of the major PHP conferences, ZendCon, the Dutch PHP Conference, and now TEK. Thinking back, this gives me a unique perspective on the process. Since I get a lot of questions about "how do I get my talk accepted," I thought I would share some of what I have learned. Here are a few basic rules I have discerned.

Cal gives some suggestions on becoming known for knowing the topic well (blog it out), tailoring the abstract to the conference's focus, thinking about the experts that already exist, being interesting and being respectful of the Call for Papers rules.

If you'd like to get your submission in, head over to the submission form on the TEK X website!
