Call for Papers Closed


Welcome to our Call for Papers! Our lovely little evening conference takes place in Cologne, Germany on August, 31st 2018.

Please submit your talk proposal until May, 15th 2018.

We’d love to see your talk submission that fits to our central theme this year, which is:

An Eye On: The Future Of Working.

The way we work is changing rapidly. In times of Artificial Intelligence, distributed teams, information overload and a vast variety of technological choices we need to find out what suits us best, how to stay calm and get things done.

Apply now!

Call for Paper FAQ

Will we cover travel costs and accommodation?
If we choose you as speaker for the event, we will cover your travel costs and make sure you have a comfortable hotel room near the event venue.
Which language is the event and its talks?
All talks and presentations are in English language.
How long is a talk?
A talk is usually 35 minutes long so please try to stick to that length when you prepare your talk. Being one or two minutes early or over the time won’t be an issue though.
How will we choose our talks?
Once the deadline for the Call for Papers submission has passed, we will select all submissions and review them anonymously. This means, we won’t see your name or similar things in order to make sure we don’t add any bias to the decision. We will try to find best fits to our central theme and then inform all submitters whether they’ve been chosen or not. We also try to be helpful and add reasons for when we declined a proposal.
Will you pay speakers for their talk?
NightlyBuild is a conference organized by a bunch of people as a non-profit, low-cost event so we are not able to pay speakers for their talk. We believe it’s important to cover expenses such as travel and accommodation costs but can’t pay more than that. We hope you can understand this.
How big is the audience?
In the past years we had around 200 people attending our event and this year will likely be around 250 people. They’re nice though and you don’t need to worry if you’re not super sure about standing in front of them.
What if I have more questions?
Best reach out to and write us your questions. We’ll be happy to help you out and answer your questions.
