Got a story you can share in five minutes? Apply to give a lightning talk at SUPCONF NYC! We’re now accepting proposals through September 26th.

How it works

  • The format is similar to Ignite Talks: 5 minutes, 20 slides, auto advancing.
  • There’s no theme requirement.
  • We won’t have a talk development program, but @nykki will be available in Slack to help you work through ideas and polish your final presentation.
  • Attendees get to vote on their favorite proposals and determine the final lineup.

Your commitments if chosen

  • You (or your employer) will cover your ticket, travel, and accommodations.
  • You will follow our code of conduct.
  • We may use your name and photo to promote the conference.
  • We may record your talk and slides (audio, video, photography) for use in social media, marketing, sales and distribution.

How to apply

  • Submit, at the least, a title and pitch by the deadline below.
  • Optionally, you may also include your slides via a public SlideShare link. This will likely increase your odds of being selected, as we’ll be featuring proposals with slides on the Support Driven blog.
  • Anyone can propose a talk, and you’re welcome to submit more than one idea.


  • September 6 — Open for submissions
  • September 26 — Submissions closed
  • September 27 — Attendees vote
  • October 4 — Voting ends and applicants notified of results
  • November 8 — Final slides due
  • November 15 – SUPCONF NYC 2016!

Go ahead, apply!
