Rust Belt Rust 2019 CFP

Oct 18 & 19, 2019 - Dayton, OH

2019 Call for Proposals (CFP)

Submissions are open until Mon July 1, 2019 at 5pm ET. All submitters will be notified about whether they have been selected or not by the end of July at the latest.

We pay speakers for airfare/mileage and hotel costs. We prefer that you book what you'd like and we reimburse you; we're happy to book directly for you if that would be easier.

Childcare will be paid for by the conference. We will work with you to find a licensed childcare provider at your hotel.

We're so excited that you're submitting to Rust Belt Rust 2019! If you have any questions, please email That address goes to Rust Belt Rust organizers who have recused themselves from the blinded rounds of review.

Please feel free to submit more than one proposal! We will only choose at most one talk per person.

Speakers are required to agree to abide by our code of conduct.

What we're looking for

Rust Belt Rust 2019 is going to be two days long. Day 1 will be for more interactive, longer workshop-style talks. Both full (6 hour) and half (3 hour) day workshops will be considered. Day 2 will be a single track of talks around 30 minutes in length.

We're open to any topics related to the Rust programming language!

Proposal Form

The proposal form is divided into four sections, each used as criteria for acceptance:

Talk Information: is the primary data used during proposal evaluation and selection. Please help us avoid unconscious/unintentional bias by not including personally identifying information in this section, including gendered pronouns, websites, or company names.

Balancing Information: is used to provide contextual information about proposals and how they would fit together as a whole conference. There are no wrong answers to these questions!

Personal & Contact Information: We will never share or publish any of your information without your explicit permission. If you are selected to be a presenter, we will contact you for permission to share some details (like your name and twitter handle) on the website.

Making Life Easier: The questions here only come into play if you are chosen to be a presenter. The information collected here does not factor into the selection process. Rather, it makes it easier for us to move forward with you as a speaker and attendee. We will be able to publicize and celebrate you as soon as you confirm your selection.

Completing the CFP form

Required fields are marked with a red asterisk (*). After you submit your proposal, you'll receive both a browser and email confirmation of your submission.
