All of our program is curated by an independent content team. We select and build the program based on the speakers’ (assumed) competence and how relevant the talk is to our event.

Are you interested in speaking at our next event? We contact a lot of speakers directly to give a talk. However, we’ve also saved a few slots so people who we've not come across yet can submit a presentation. It doesn’t matter how much speaking experience you have, we’re interested in your topic. We choose the talk based on how well the topic fits in with the other speakers, bearing in mind our target audience consists of people involved in interface development and design. We have frontend developers from design to code-heavy engineering, and we have designers from artsy visual design to CSS cracks.

Deadline for submissions is 15 June 2021.

COVID-19

We are determined and hopeful to uphold the spirit of Front Conference in 2021 as an in-person event in Zürich despite the global restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Nonetheless the situation is still very dynamic and we will have to adjust our plans as we go:

  • Even more than in normal times this means that applying for a talk at the Front Conference does not always result in an invitation to the conference.
  • Given the circumstances, we cannot guarantee that you can give your talk or that you can travel to the conference.
  • We know that submitting a talk proposal takes time and we really appreciate your effort. If your application does not get accepted this year or if we cannot hold the conference in 2021 as planned, we will keep your talk on our list for the subsequent year.

That being said we are so much looking forward to your submissions and hope to see you happy and healthy soon.
