Coming soon: A new CFP

Our No CFP, where we curate the speakers without a general public plea for speakers, has served a valuable purpose, and we loved doing it. Through the relationships we already have, we have brought in some of the best speakers in the world. People who, for whatever reason, wouldn't have participated in a Summercon CFP in the past.

But times change. It's not enough to rely on our personal contact lists to find a full bench of speakers. We plan on using Summercon Alumni Network to help out. After 31 years of this chaos, it is a powerful vehicle for finding new and exciting research.

So watch this space. Summercon 2018 is the last year we'll be doing a No CFP. We'll be announcing changes soon about the speaker selection process. Exciting things are coming for 2019!
