As members of the IBM collaboration technology community, we all know that IBM technology delivers some of the best technology to the market. If you are working with technologies like Docker, IoT, React, Node, Node-Red, Typescript, Loopback, MongoDB/CouchDB , Linux, and Web security or any technology use in collaboration we welcome to you to share your knowledge. Are you new to speaking? Well here is your chance to speak at a conference on a topic that you know well. Every year we reserve a number of speaking slots for new speakers. Our new Chat sessions are smaller informal sessions and provide you a chance to speak. So take this unique opportunity to speak at a CollabSphere conference and submit an abstract.

For CollabSphere 2018 we will have three different presentation formats with 15 minutes breaks between sessions. The three formats include:

  • Chats, 20 minutes informal sessions
  • Presentations, 45 minutes sessions
  • Workshops, 120 to 150 minute sessions

We have reorganized our tracks for CollabSphere 2018 to better reflect our industry and focus. The new session tracks are:

  • Analytics
  • Collaboration
  • DevOps
  • Infrastructure and Integration
  • Messaging
  • Security and Compliance
  • User Experience

Note: You do not need to register for Collabsphere 2018 in order to submit an abstract. Once you are selected as a speaker, you will then need to register for the conference through Eventbrite. To show our appreciation for donating your time and labor to help the ICS community, speakers each will receive a unique Eventbrite registration code that will allow you to register for Collabsphere 2018 at no cost. The registration code will be included in your acceptance email. If you already registered and submitted an abstract, you will be refunded the registration fee if you are selected as a speaker.
