This page contains notes regarding the proposal submission process for PGCon 2011.

  • If your submission is accepted, funds are available for travel and accommodation. We prefer to pay for the travel rather than reimburse you. Reimbursement can take quite some time. We apologize for that.
  • Please submit all proposals through
  • At that URL, please create your account and wait for the confirmation email. Please confirm it, and then login and begin your submission process.

    NOTE: If you submitted a paper last year, you can use your old login again. Just click on Login instead of Create Account. If you cannot remember your login details, hit escape at the login box, then go through the password reset process.

Submission system notes

  • After login, please click on the Person link and then fill in all the tabs, but you can ignore the Travel and costs tab.
  • When saved, please create an event, one for each proposal you are submitting.

Required information

When submitting your proposal, there are a number of items we need to know. This information won't be needed unless your proposal is accepted. However, we need this information immediately and history shows that some people are very slow to provide this information after acceptance. Therefore, we are asking for it up front. We're serious about running a good conference. Please help us.

There are places for this information within your personal details section of the submission website.

What we need:

  • country of passport.
  • The exact name in your passport.
  • your phone number.
  • some method of IM contact or IRC details.
  • Your personal details must be complete. This includes:
    • photograph
    • biography
    • travel details: dates, times, costs

We are sorry to be so draconion, but too many speakers neglect to include this information and much time is wasted after acceptance trying to chase them down. This takes time away from core conference activities. It also makes your confernence organizor grumpy. You won't like him when he's grumpy.
