PhreakNIC without speakers would be a really lame party and we don't throw lame parties.
If you have something that you'd like to present and you can fill 15, 30, or 50 minutes please use the button below to submit your idea and how long a slot you'd like to fill. We are trying a slightly different format this year with the shorter talks so if you have one that is short on wind but big on bite now is your chance.
We'd never ask you to do something for nothing, well we would but not this time. As a token of our thanks for your presentation you'll receive a custom badge with your name, entry to the conference, and a super secret usually awesome item that is reserved just for our fine speakers. In the past this has been umbrellas, laser pointers, thumbdrives, 10 minutes with alone with Notlarry. We don't know what it is yet this year but you can bet it will be amazing.
Use this handy submit button below to submit your idea(s) now. If you have a few but only want to give one then let us know and we'll pick for you.
