So, you’re interested in speaking at GHC 18. What should you do? We’ve created this guide to help you through the process.
Step 2: View all of our tracks and decide which one you’re most interested in. GHC is built around different tracks, which are thematic areas with dedicated chairs and committee members.
Step 3: Once you’ve chosen your track, it’s time to pick a session format. We offer a variety, so you can choose one that fits your speaking style and topic. You may only submit one proposal per session type.
Step 4: Apply to speak. Applications close March 7, 2018 at 5 p.m. PT.
Step 5: Wait to hear from us. We expect to announce accepted speakers on May 16, 2018. Learn more about our review process here.
