PHPBenelux Conference 2020 Speaker Information

We're committed to bringing together some of the best speakers from all around the world to share their knowledge with you here. We provide a travel and accommodation package to all selected speakers to help make this possible.

About the event

PHPBenelux crew will arrange pickup and drop off rides for speakers from Brussels Airport Zaventem (BRU) or Antwerp Central Train Station.

Speakers will be provided with a projector, a wireless lapel microphone and a screen for their presentation (size depends on the room). Speakers should bring any equipment they need to connect to projectors (VGA & HDMI). It is also suggested that you reduce your dependency on the in-house internet connection as much as possible.

When the Call for Papers closes, the organizers will sort through the submissions, making their selections. Speakers will be notified as soon as the selection process has been completed.

More diversity only possible with your help!

We want to ensure that all speakers have an equal opportunity to share their knowledge at our conference and this is only possible if you submit your ideas! We will make sure that PHPBenelux Conference is a safe and encouraging event where you're valued as an expert.

This year's package

You are eligible for the speaker package if your topic is chosen for our conference. Our speaker package includes:

  • Full conference pass
  • For speakers remote to the Area:
    • Complimentary airfare/travel
    • Full complimentary hotel nights
  • Lunch, receptions and activities included in regular conference
  • We'll pick you up and drop you off to/from the airport so you don't have to worry about it.

International speakers are encouraged to submit their ideas, but because of budget restrictions, we can only accept a limited number of speakers from outside of Europe.

About the talks

The duration of each talk is 60 minutes. This includes Questions and Answers time (Q&A). Generally the talk itself lasts 50 minutes and Q&A 10 minutes.

A workshop lasts 3 hours, and includes preferrably hands-on and Q&A time.

Tips for Submission

We strongly encourage potential speakers to submit more than one submission on more than one topic. The more submissions you contribute, the more options you give us to pick you. Be sure your talk title and abstract define the exact topic you want to talk about and what you hope people will learn from the session. In previous years, some submissions sounded interesting but we just didn't have enough detail for them to make the final cut.

Please look at our talk ideas to find out what talks we would love to receive. If your talk doesn't fit in our provided list of subjects, please make sure you check other.
