Why Call for Speakers in an Unconference?

ALE is an unconference and we emphasize the informal exchange of information and ideas between participants, rather than following a conventionally structured program.
By keeping the format, we want to provide our audience with the best and highest quality sharing moments.

From the speaker's submissions, we will select a few awesome talks and mini-workshops as Seed Sessions.

Also, we will share with all participants the proposals from our ALEsome candidates, therefore giving our community the opportunity of building an amazing and disruptive agenda.
