Review and selection Process

DevCon 2013-Working Group will categorize and select a list of topics and presentations that are most suitable and will best fit into the DevCon2013 –Yangon schedule. For requested topics, the DevCon-WG will search for the most suitable presenters. The DevCon-WG reserved the right for final decision on the selections. The selected presentation list (title and presenter) will be published by October 7th. The selected presenters must prepare and submit the full presentation no later than November 1st.

Presentation materials and format

Presentations should be in Microsoft Office Power Point 2007 or later. If the presentation is in any other format, it is the presenter’s responsibility to provide the application environment to run the presentation. Each presentation may have optional demonstrations, tools, images, and motion pictures. A personal computer will be provided for the presentation, but it is the presenter responsibility to ensure that all documents and demonstrations are event ready ahead of time to ensure smooth presentation within the given time period.

Total time allocation for each session is 50 minutes, of which 35-45 minutes time allocation for presentation, and additional 10-15 minutes for questions and answers.

Lightning Talks

This year, we are adding “Lightning Talk” sections. There will be 4 to 5 lightning talk sections arranged for an hour period in each of the conference room in each conference day. The time limit is set at 10 minutes. The format is free talk, but speaker may choose to put up pre-submitted materials on the projector. The aim is to be short but effective knowledge sharing. Interaction between speaker and audience could happen if time permits.
