  • Find an easy and catchy title that explains your topic. Don’t try to explain everything with the title. Don’t underestimate the title. Take some time to think about it.
  • Use the abstract to explain what the problem is. How did you solve it? Give us tons of examples of what you’d talk about.
  • Provide 2-3 practical takeaways of successful use cases, best practices, teachings, or how-tos.
  • You can use the message to the program committee to explain a bit more in a casual way about the details of your talk.
  • Read the abstracts from Summit Europe 2017. This will help you understand better what we’re expecting.

So what are you waiting for? We're looking forward to receive your submission.
