JSConf Iceland 2018 closed Mar 01, 2018 to Mar 02, 2018


Closed on Nov 1, 2017 at 08:00am GMT

We are inviting the JavaScript community to submit talks for JSConf Iceland.


JSConf is a conference about JavaScript, and everything that it concerns. If you need ideas on what to talk about, here are some topics that we like:

  • Cutting-edge technological advances in the world of JavaScript or computer science in general, if somehow applicable to JavaScript.
  • Wild Ideas & Clever Hacks.
  • Improving JavaScript developers' lives.
  • Fundamentals, in a modern light.
  • The JavaScript community, culture, history, past, present & future, the why the who and the what of what we're all doing.
  • And finally: Whatever you want; this is your conference.

The Perks

If you get selected as a speaker, here’s what you get:

  • Travel to Reykjavik
  • Conference ticket
  • Hotel and food

If you want to bring a significant other, or bring your kid(s) and need child-care to be sorted out for the time of the conference, please get in touch. We are here to make this easy for you!

If your employer can cover your travel and hotel, we are happy to list them as a travel sponsor. The money we save will be used to make the conference even better.

We Can Help

Not everybody is a natural talent on stage. Not everybody can produce kick-ass slide-decks. Not everybody is a live-demo god.

There are about a million reasons why you don’t consider yourself a speaker. We are here to prove you wrong. We are here to help you to develop or hone the skills you need to deliver a great presentation.

  • We can connect you with experienced speakers to help prepare your submission.
  • We can review and advise on your slide deck. If you're not feeling creative, just use our Keynote or PowerPoint templates.
  • If you need practice giving talks, get in touch. We can hook you up with local groups so you can practice in front of a friendly crowd.

Get in touch: [email protected] (just don’t use this to submit a proposal).

If you need more encouragement, check out our great friend Tiffany's site We Are All Awesome that aims to convince you to speak at a conference.


Submit your proposal by October 31st, 2017, 23:59:59 GMT. No excuses. All talks should be in English.

Talks will be 30 minutes. There is no Q&A. We will be on a tight schedule and will end talks that overrun. We strongly encourage you to time your presentation in advance.

Keep it snappy. Proposals should be around two paragraphs.

No marketing or sales in your talk. Some of the most interesting talks, however, are born from experiences working on your product.


All talks will be recorded and published on the internet for free. We do this for the benefit of those who can’t make it to the conference. If you are in any way uncomfortable, let us know, and we will work things out.

Finally, since you retain full ownership of your slides and recording, we’d like to ask you to make your materials and recording available under a creative commons (we default to no commercial reuse) or other open source licenses.
