LOGIN 2001 Call for Speakers

January 7, 2011 -

Organizers of LOGIN 2011 have put out the call for speakers this week. The annual event dedicated to online and social gaming is looking for speakers and their abstracts to be submitted so they can be properly vetted and approved ahead of the events launch on May 16 - 18 in Bellevue, Washington. Candidates are asked to review the topics of interest and session submission tips on the LOGIN 2011 website and then submit a completed session proposal form with 1,000 word abstract and biography before the deadline of Feb. 13, 2011.

The organizers offer the following five tips for submitting suggestions:

1. Submit a proposal on one of the many identified areas of interest. The advisory board has put a good deal of thought identifying areas we feel are relevant to attendees. If your proposal is the only one for an area we are interested in, it will have priority over all the proposals outside our identified topic ideas.

2. Avoid any marketing slant in your proposals, particularly if you represent a service or technology vendor. LOGIN will host no sponsored or commercial sessions, and proposals that appear to be sales pitches in disguise will be rejected.

3. Focus on areas of your expertise. The audience of LOGIN consists of experienced industry leaders who want to hear from experts. Avoid areas where you aren't experienced or recognized as an expert. Give stories about your own experiences, rather than theoretical ideas.

4. Spend time writing a quality abstract. A poorly written or overly terse abstract indicates that you aren't willing to prepare in advance. The abstract is the most important part of your proposal and the basis on which it will be judged.

5. Submit your proposal well before the Feb. 13 deadline. By the end of the call for speakers, we will have selected many of the sessions already, and your proposal will be competing with every other proposal for a shrinking number of speaker slots.

Infophile@Matt: I'm talking about people I've seen on this site arguing that the title alone justified the reaction to the article, that it was deliberately offensive. Not even a new YouTube video by a risen-from-the-dead Albert Einstein would change that.07/31/2015 - 12:52pm
Big PermI just didn't care for the wording. I don't think it should be changed or anything.07/31/2015 - 12:46pm
james_fudgeIf I am misunderstanding your point expand on it in the comments and i'll talk about it in there.07/31/2015 - 12:23pm
james_fudgeIt's clearly part of a broader internal fight against people like Sargon.07/31/2015 - 12:21pm
james_fudgeBig perm: fair point. On the other hand that's its origins and not saying that in some way would be a disservice to our readers07/31/2015 - 12:21pm
Andrew EisenMatt - What is the argument that Sargon supposedly debunked?07/31/2015 - 12:06pm
Big PermThat said, I don't think it's a shit article.07/31/2015 - 11:22am
Big PermNot really a fan of "one individual aligned with Gamer Gate attempted to shame a prominent figure within its own ranks". It should be encouraged that we call out hipocracy, and instead I feel that shines a negative light on such a thing.07/31/2015 - 11:21am
james_fudgeI'm curious what our GG-aligned readers think of our Necromancer story? Was it fair? Unfair?07/31/2015 - 11:11am
E. Zachary KnightMatt, That the whole stink over the articles is a bunch of BS? Because that is the only part that is BS.07/31/2015 - 8:29am
MattsworknameOh btw, info, are you still refering to that "gamers are dead" argument? Cause sargon of akkad just did a 3 video series that proves it's based on bullshit07/31/2015 - 6:46am
MattsworknameInfo: thats what you call clickbaiting to the highest level07/31/2015 - 5:43am
InfophileAnd here's why you never judge an article by its title: "Microsoft Gives All Windows 10 Users the Finger" - http://www.themarysue.com/microsoft-windows-10-middle-finger/ (I'm looking at you, people still mad about "Gamers are Dead")07/31/2015 - 5:09am
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.bloomberg.com/news/videos/2015-07-31/khan-academy-s-sal-khan-studio-1-0-full-show-7-30- not game related, but this is a good interview.07/30/2015 - 8:52pm
Goth_SkunkFinally, I never misspelled Chipman's name. So, feel free to try your luck again, but pick an opponent you can beat.07/30/2015 - 8:32pm
Goth_Skunk@Technogeek: I paid for the experience of the seat, and upon completion of the movie determined that the extra for the seat wasn't worth it. Additionally, your opinion is not law. You thinking the movie is crap does not make it so.07/30/2015 - 8:31pm
Craig R.1st I heard of Pixels was seeing trailer in theater. Was interested until Sandler appeared, then it became an instant 'Nope'.07/30/2015 - 4:52pm
james_fudgesick burns are not always allowed in the shoutbox.07/30/2015 - 4:28pm
MechaCrashIt's especially funny because I said "you'd have to be a moron to enjoy it," and Goth boasted about enjoying it, as if that does anything to change my opinion of the movie or of him.07/30/2015 - 4:19pm
TechnogeekMatthew: Back when that law was first implemented, I kept trying to come up with a scenario where it would be anything other than an unmitigatedd sisaster. Nothing ever came to mind.07/30/2015 - 4:16pm
