Call for Proposals

We are inviting the Julia community to submit talks and workshop proposals for the upcoming JuliaCon (June 20th-24th 2017, Berkeley, California, USA).
This Call for Proposals closes on March 31th, 11:59pm AOE (UTC-12).

JuliaCon is the fourth annual Julia community meeting. We encourage everyone to consider submitting a proposal, regardless of your level of experience with Julia or as a speaker. If you work with Julia in any form, we want to hear from you!


Over the years, JuliaCon presentations have ranged from introductory to advanced and have been from industry and academia. To get a feel for previous years’ presentations, take a look at our past programmes and recordings: (2014; 2015 and 2016).

We are interested in all topics that have to do with Julia, including the following incomplete list:

The most important consideration is whether you think it would be interesting.

Proposal types

Talks are 30 minutes long, including 5 minutes allocated for questions from the audience.
Lightning talks are 10 minutes long, including 2 minutes allocated for audience questions. Workshops are two to three hours long and are either in-depth tutorials or interactive hackathon sessions.

If you have other ideas or suggestions, like a topic or focus of a hackathon, please let us know and we will see what we can do.

Proposal Advice

If you have doubts about becoming a speaker, check out the website We are all awesome.
We look forward to your proposals and to seeing you at JuliaCon 2017.

The fine print

Submission process

We are using an anonymized submissions process, to avoid selection bias related to the speaker.

Financial support

Travel and/or conference ticket reimbursement is also available for a limited number of speakers and attendees, particularly those who bring new perspectives and diverse backgrounds to JuliaCon. See here to apply for financial support.

Recordings and materials

We plan to video record all talks and will make them available after the conference. We do this for those who cannot attend. If you are uncomfortable with having your talk recorded, however, please let any member of the committee know; being recorded is not a requirement to attend JuliaCon or to give a presentation.

Finally, we also ask you to make your materials and recording available under a Creative Commons (default: no commercial reuse) or other open source license.
