Proposals will be filtered and shortlisted by an Editorial Panel. We urge you to add links to videos / slide decks when submitting proposals. This will help us understand your speaking experience, and if further practice is required. Blurbs or blog posts covering the relevance of a particular problem statement and how it is tackled will help the Editorial Panel better judge your proposals.
We expect you to submit an outline of your proposed talk – either in the form of a mind map or a text document or draft slides within two weeks of submitting your proposal.
We will notify you about the status of your proposal within three weeks of submission.
Selected speakers must participate in one or two rounds of rehearsals before the conference. This is mandatory and helps you to prepare well for the conference.
A speaker is NOT confirmed a slot unless we explicitly mention so in an email or over any other medium of communication.
There is only one speaker per session. Entry is free for selected speakers. As our budget is limited, we prefer speakers from locations closer home, but will do our best to cover for anyone exceptional. HasGeek will provide a grant to cover part of your travel and accommodation in Bangalore. Grants are limited and made available to speakers delivering full sessions (40 minutes or longer).
50p will be held at the MLR Convention Centre, JP Nagar.

Escrow to facilitate financial transactions between wallets
In this digital era, there are many times when we need to perform transactions online or throught mobile without actually meeting the transacting individuals / entities in person. What an escrow tries to solve is providing the security of money or goods worth through a fair platform to transact safely and securely.
The system proposed acts as a mediating platform between two entities for example a buyer and seller. The buyer initiates a fund transfer to the platform and the platform informs the seller of the transaction being successful. After which the seller initiates the delivery of the purchased product, once delivered the buyer acknoledges recieving and accepting the product. Once the product is accepted, the platform initiates the transfer to a seller account. This way you are ensuring there is a fair play with both entities.
The application of such a system spans various industries, and would be elaborated more during the talk.
