Tips for submitting a successful proposal

Help us understand why your presentation is the right one for Data Science Festival. Please keep in mind that this event is by and for professionals.

• Be authentic. Your peers need original ideas in real-world scenarios, relevant examples, and knowledge transfer. Not something they could learn from a book.
• Give your proposal a simple and straightforward title.
• Include as much detail about the presentation as possible.
• If you are proposing a panel, tell us who else would be on it.
• Keep proposals free of marketing and sales.
• Keep the audience in mind: they’re experienced, and already knowledgable.
• Limit the scope: be realistic about the material you can cover in the time allowed.
• Explain why people will want to attend and what they’ll take away from it
