Call for Papers Smashed Records

Our Call for Papers has ended and we completely smashed all previous records.  The response that we got was amazing!

We ended up with 525 submissions this year, from 154 different speakers!  That’s on average 3.43 talks per speaker.  We had two speakers tie for the ‘most submissions’ each at twelve.

We want to thank everyone for the great response we got to this year’s CfP.  Now the problem is that we are left with the need to pair this down to fill only 40 sessions, 8 short sessions, and 6 tutorials to fill the schedule.   That means that only about 1 in every 10 submissions is going to be able to be accepted.  And from the looks of it we have some amazing submissions.
