Warpstock 2020 Call for Presenters

ArchiveThe Warpstock speaker committee invites you make a presentation at this year's conference. Presentations can be live from your location or you can supply a prepared video to be screened and then take questions from the audience.

If you are willing to prepare a presentation for Warpstock 2020, please let us know as soon as possible so we may reserve time for you. Your presentation will help us make Warpstock 2020 a success.

We need a presentation title and a short description to put on the website. If you are a first time presenter, we will also want a one-paragraph bio. Or, if you are a repeat presenter and have done something new and different since your last time presenting, please provide an update.

Your live input can come to us via most of the popular streaming services (Skype, Zoom, Google Hangouts, etc.). Please let us know in advance so that we may be prepared to receive your broadcast.

Your pre-recorded sessions may be in any the following formats: .mp4, .ts, .mov, .flv, .mkv, .avi, .gif, .webm.

Slides are not required, but if you use them, session slides should be made available one week in advance of the event in PDF or OpenOffice Impress format.

Be prepared for a brief (15-20 minute) technical run-through 7-10 days before the event, at an agreed upon time and date. (You do not need to have your slides prepared for the run-through.)

Individuals considering making a presentation should submit a letter of their intent by e-mail to: presenters [AT] warpstock [DOT] org.

Booking flights for this year's event - DO IT NOW

ArchiveThe news around the globe is replete with reports that the continued grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX is disrupting carrier flight schedules for many airlines, even those not heavily reliant upon that equipment. In addition, due to the shuffling and reshuffling of pilots, crews, routes, and other "necessities of air travel," even routes not normally handled by these planes are being adversely affected. Don't wait to book your flights until the last minute!
