It's currently the last day of May, which means that it's the last day for potential speakers at this year's HOPE conference to send in their submissions. Because of the huge number of entries this year, we cannot extend this deadline. After midnight (Eastern Daylight Time), we will no longer be accepting speaker submissions. So if you plan on giving a talk or throwing together a panel discussion, we suggest you drop whatever you're doing and put together an email that outlines your proposal, and send that on in to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can find a list of guidelines here.
If you've already submitted a talk, we still have it and it will be considered until we make our final decisions in the next few weeks. Some talks have already been accepted and are listed here.
HOPE Number Nine will be held July 13-15, 2012 at the Hotel Pennsylvania in New York City. Discounted registration is still available. Bulk ticket sales are also available. Heavily discounted hotel rooms are going fast.
The original HOPE Number Nine call for speakers can be found here.
