Call for Papers

Interested in speaking at Comms Connect Sydney?

Comms Connect Series

We are now seeking workshops, case studies and technology submissions for Comms Connect Sydney 2020

Case studies may target a specific end user group, e.g. mining or public safety, or may be a more general paper with broader audience appeal.

Target audiences for presentations include:

Technology papers

These papers must not be vendor specific or sales orientated. Those that are will not be selected. Papers that take an agnostic approach – focusing on technology, its application and convergence with other applications and technologies – with case studies included, will be selected for inclusion where possible.

Training Workshops

Workshops may have multiple presenters from different organisations and you may be asked to work with industry colleagues to deliver a training workshop. Handouts, classroom-style interaction and demonstrations are expected for the workshops and materials should be available for distribution by the organisers in the week prior to the workshop to help participants prepare.

Topics for consideration for workshops include, but are not limited to:

Presentation duration

General sessions
30 minutes, including time for Q&A, unless otherwise instructed.

Training workshops
3 hours unless otherwise instructed.

Selection

Papers will be evaluated on the inclusion of case studies, their relevance, practicality and timeliness, along with the speaker’s knowledge and past experience.
