Longhorn PHP Conference Speaker Information

We're committed to bringing together some of the best speakers from all around the world to share their knowledge with you here. We provide a travel and accommodation package to all selected speakers to help make this possible.

About the event

Every room will have a 1080p (16:9) projector, screen, with a variety of adapters (HDMI, USB-C, mini DisplayPort, VGA). WiFi internet will be available (and reliable!) throughout the venue.

Once the Call for Papers closes (December 15th 11:59 pm), we will sort through the submissions, making our selections. Once the selection process has been completed, everyone who submitted a talk will be notified promptly as to whether or not their talk has been accepted.

What we provide for Selected Speakers

  • For all speakers, you'll get a full conference pass (tutorial day and main conference days), including access to lunch, after-parties, and any other activities included in the conference.
  • For speakers remote to the Austin area, we'll provide 3 nights at the speaker hotel (4 nights if presenting a talk and a tutorial) near the conference venue.
  • For speakers outside Texas, we'll book you an Economy or equivalent round-trip airfare on a flight into Austin we'd be comfortable taking ourselves (we're conference speakers too!). Plus, we'll arrange transportation between the Austin airport and the speaker hotel.

International speakers are encouraged to submit their talks, but because of budget restrictions, we can only afford to pay airfare for a limited number of international speakers.

Tips for Submission

We strongly encourage potential speakers to submit more than one submission on more than one topic. The more submissions you contribute, the more options you give us to pick you. Please be detailed and descriptive in your talk abstract.
