About Droidcon

Droidcon is India's largest Android developer conference, and is part of the world wide series of conferences that happens in London, Paris, Berlin, Netherlands, Tunis, Ankara and Brussels. If you are doing anything with Android, you'd want to be here in Bangalore on Nov 28-30th 2013.

Schedule

A WIP schedule will be up on the Droidcon India website and will be updated periodically.

Selection Process

Voting is open to attendees who have purchased event tickets. If there is a proposal you find notable, please vote for it and leave a comment to initiate discussions. Your vote will be reflected immediately, but will be counted towards selections only if you hold a ticket. Proposals will also be evaluated by a program committee, consisting of:

Proposers must submit presentation drafts as part of the selection process to ensure that the talk is in line with the original proposal, and to help the program committee build a strong line-up for the event.


Milestones

Final date for submission of proposals Oct 18th, 2013.

First set of pre-confirmations Oct 18th, 2013.

Submission of slide drafts Oct 25th, 2013.

Second set of pre-confirmations Oct 26th, 2013.

Schedule draft posted on site Nov 4th, 2013

Final confirmations Nov 5th, 2013.

Final schedule Nov 8th, 2013


All speakers are requested to be available for officehours during the conference. This will be a scheduled 30 minute block of time during which attendees can meet you at a designated space for open Q&A offstage.

There is only one speaker per session. Attendance is free for selected speakers. HasGeek will cover your travel to and accommodation in Bangalore from anywhere in the world for speakers delivering full sessions (30 minutes or longer). As our budget is limited, we will prefer speakers from locations closer home, but will do our best to cover for anyone exceptional. If you are able to raise support for your trip, we will count that as speaker travel sponsorship.

Commitment to open source

HasGeek believes in open source as the binding force of our community. If you are describing a codebase for developers to work with, we'd like it to be available under a permissive open source license. If your software is commercially licensed or available under a combination of commercial and restrictive open source licenses (such as the various forms of the GPL), please consider picking up a sponsorship. We recognize that there are valid reasons for commercial licensing, but ask that you support us in return for giving you an audience. Your session will be marked on the schedule as a sponsored session.

Non Accepted Proposals

If your proposal is accepted for a session > 30 minutes long, we will cover your event ticket.

If your proposal is not accepted, you can buy a ticket at the same rate as was available on the day you proposed. We’ll send you a code.
