Why speak at IN/Clojure?

Over the years, IN/Clojure has served as a platform to kickstart a series of Clojure workshops and meet-ups across the country. And, it has helped attendees make a strong case for Clojure and Clojurescript adoption in their companies.

By sharing your ideas, experiences, and knowledge, you too can help foster the growing Clojure community in India, and also add to the global body of Clojure know-how.

And it’s a mighty fine opportunity to meet other Clojurists from across the world, and to meet companies that are using Clojure to solve business problems at scale.

Who should propose a talk?

You can submit a talk regardless of your experience level with Clojure; all perspectives matter.

IN/Clojure’s primary focus is the free exchange of ideas between new and experienced Clojure programmers alike.

You should especially propose a talk, if you’ve been programming Clojure and/or Clojurescript professionally but believe you have nothing to say. Well, you do, or your team does! Think, ideate, submit a proposal!

What to propose?

We’re looking for submissions on a wide range of topics.

  • You did something cool with Clojure lately? We want to hear from you!
  • Maybe you learnt Clojure on weekends and built a small game in ClojureScript? Write in!
  • Maybe you rewrote your old Java, or Go application in Clojure. Tell us all about it.
  • Maybe you rewrote your Clojure application in another language. Well, we want to hear about that too!
  • Maybe you taught Clojure to your friends, and there were some interesting aha! moments you want to talk about? Write in!
  • If you built a wrapper library, a terminal game, a scraper spider, a crud generator, a tflops number cruncher, a distributed messaging platform, or a deep learning thingamajig, yes, you should submit a talk!

How it works

Process

  • You submit a proposal in our public call for proposals system.
  • You may propose one or more talks fitting these length criteria:
    • Full Talks will be 40 mins long, including 5 mins of Q & A.
    • Crisp Talks will be 20 mins long, including 5 mins of Q & A.
    • Lightning Talks will be 10 mins long, with Q & A in the hallways :-)
  • Our selection committee of experts will review and select talks, to help us curate an inclusive and diverse forum.
  • Once selected, our team will coordinate with you for travel and stay arrangements.

Selection philosophy

The smallness of the Clojure ecosystem in India makes it very likely that a subset of the organising team, panelists, and potential speakers are also professionally affiliated with some conference sponsors.

This does not negatively influence talk selection. Quite the opposite, it makes us especially mindful of selection bias, and we keep each other in check. In other words, IN/Clojure is not “pay to play”. Sponsors do not get special preference, and friends do not get to cut in line.

Additionally, our conference code of conduct naturally applies to the conduct of the talk selection process as well.

To exist, IN/Clojure fundamentally relies on the good sense and kindness of involved people, and the community at large. Please do write to team@inclojure.org for questions and clarifications.

Speaker reimbursement

IN/Clojure will reimburse economy-class travel costs for speakers:

  • For international travel – up to INR 80K (approx. USD 1200)
  • For domestic travel – up to INR 15K

Apart from travel, we will also provide up to 2 nights of stay to speakers whose submissions are accepted.

See other talks listed on this page, and submit yours today!
