About Droidcon

Droidcon is a two day international conference that's all about Android. It brings together luminaries from all aspects of the Android ecosystem - solo app developers, visual and interaction designers, software startups, enterprise software leaders, robotics and arduino wizards, kernel and ROM hackers, OEMs and platform providers, and technology enthusiasts.


Tickets are available from

Proposal Selection Process

The proposal funnel below will enable you to submit a session and vote on proposed sessions. It is a good practice introduce yourself and share details about your work as well as the subject of your talk while proposing a session.

Each community member can vote for or against a talk. A vote from each member of the Program Committee is equivalent to two community votes. Both types of votes will be considered for final speaker selection.

It's useful to keep a few guidelines in mind while submitting proposals:

  1. Describe how to use something that is available under a liberal open source license. Participants can use this without having to pay you anything.

  2. Tell a story of how you did something. If it involves commercial tools, please explain why they made sense.

  3. Buy a slot to pitch whatever commercial tool you are backing.

Making a funnel submission does not guarantee final selection. While selected speakers will get a free ticket to both days of the event, proposers whose talks are not on the final schedule will be able to purchase tickets at the Early Geek price of Rs. 1800.

Sessions at this year's Droidcon are 30 minutes each, including transition time. You have 20 minutes to present and 5 minutes for Q&A, with the remaining 5 minutes for the next presenter to begin setting up while you answer the last set of questions.

If you have material that will need more than 30 minutes, consider:

  1. Skipping the first part of your presentation and making it more advanced level, or
  2. Splitting it into two proposals. The Program Committee will work with you to schedule your (selected) sessions back-to-back for continuity.
