How do I...?
I’ve got an amazing topic and I want to present it at DrupalCon - what do I need to do? Each DrupalCon has an open call for papers (or sessions) about 6 months prior to the conference. You’ll need to submit your session online during this window to be considered for Session Selection. We can receive over 400 proposals during each DrupalCon Call for Papers, and depending on the venue, have room for up to 102 sessions. Not everyone who submits a paper will be selected to present - but don’t let that discourage you from submitting!
How can I offer a Training at DrupalCon?
To be considered to offer a Training at DrupalCon you must submit a proposal during the Call for Training proposal, which occurs about 6 months prior to the conference. Learn more about DrupalCon Trainings.
If a Training is sold out, how can I get on the waiting list?
Unfortunately, we do not offer a waitlist for trainings. If seats become available in a Training, we will announce these capacity changes on @drupalcon.
My company is interested in Sponsoring DrupalCon, how can we get involved?
That’s awesome - we love to see companies giving back to the Drupal community!
