While the bulk of Personal Democracy Forum 2016’s main hall program is largely complete, we’re still hard at work fleshing out the details for two days of more than 25 breakout sessions and workshops. So if you would like to submit a proposal for a session, now is your chance. Submissions are open through the end of April and will be responded to on a rolling basis, so don’t delay. 

We are open to proposals on a wide variety of topics, including organizing, activism, digital strategy, civic tech, media, tech policy, the 2016 election, and beyond. Panels should relate at least generally to the overall conference theme of “The Tech We Need.” Please note: We have a strong preference for panels that are diverse by gender, ethnicity/race and political viewpoint. We will not consider a proposed panel if it is all-male.

Here’s what is required:

Title: A short headline for a panel topic.

Category: Organizing and Activism, Digital Strategy, Civic Tech, Ideas and Controversies, Media Innovation, Tech Policy, 2016 Politics, Other.

Description: 1-2 paragraph description of the session, what it would cover, who it is for.

Proposed speakers: Names of 2-4 people who would anchor the conversation.


Use the form below to submit your proposal.
