The final format of accepted sessions will be determined by the advisors. Please select what you feel will be the most appropriate.
|Lecture||40 minutes||Lectures are issue-oriented presentations, which provide concrete examples, and contain both practical and theoretical information. We generally prefer only one speaker but we may accept two if you can demonstrate the second person is necessary.|
|Panel||40 minutes||Panels are 40 minute sessions and take on many different viewpoints of a topic or issue and combine them in one debate session with a moderator. Debate among panelists (with very different opinions) is welcome and audience participation time should be accounted for. Include all of the panelists you have confirmed in the proposal – no more than 5 with diverse representation. A very limited number of panels will be accepted.|
It is very common for us to receive a proposal on a wonderful topic that we want to accept, but that requires a format change. No matter the format, all sessions are 40-minutes long, including Q&A.
Lectures tend to cover a single, narrow topic in depth. Most lectures are given by a single person, unless there is a compelling reason that requires multiple speakers.
Panels tend to examine a controversial or difficult topic with no easy answers and dynamic talking points. At 40-minutes, panels generally have enough time for about six planned questions. In all cases, expect to leave time at the end for Q&A.
Panels generally have a moderator and three or four panelists who are established and known experts on the topic. Ideally panelists will represent different perspectives and points of view on the subject.
The benefits of being a speaker include:
XRDC sessions present opportunities for professional XR developers to share ideas, case studies and experiences. In general, content specific to proprietary products and technologies will be considered sponsored material. If you would like to promote a product or service, please contact our sales team for information on exhibiting and other vendor opportunities, including sponsored sessions.
The Advisory Board and conference management reserve the right to exercise their editorial discretion. Proposals that are commercial or marketing focused in nature will not be considered for the non-sponsored content program.
When you agree to speak at XRDC, you are making a commitment to deliver a well prepared talk and to speak on the topic you have proposed. We ask that you do not drastically change the submitted topic or content after it is formally accepted into the program.
You will be evaluated by attendees on how well you delivered your presentation as well as the presentation's content. We will provide this helpful feedback to you after XRDC.
We expect our speakers to submit the final version of their presentation to be made available on the GDC Vault.
