A summary of all BriForum 2011 dates & deadlines (for speakers & attendees)

With two BriForums this year it can be a bit tricky to keep track of all the various dates and deadlines (even for me!), so I quickly threw together this information to help you keep it all straight.

With two BriForums this year it can be a bit tricky to keep track of all the various dates and deadlines (even for me!), so I quickly threw together this information to help you keep it all straight. Basically we have two sets of deadlines: those for people who want to speak, and various discounts for those who want to attend.

London speaker deadlines

Feb 25: Session Proposals due for London (submit here)
Mar 11: Notification of acceptance
May 10-11: BriForum London

*As a side-note, BriForum London is turning out to be very, very popular! We've actually just added a fourth breakout room for one of the days, which means we can bring in three more speakers. So keep those session proposals coming in!

London attendee deadlines

Feb 4: Early-early-bird registration ends (£200 discount)
March 18: Early-bird registration ends (£100 discount)
May 10-11: BriForum London

BriForum London is £595 if you register by Feb 4, then £695 from Feb 5 - March 18, then £795 after that. More details on registration are here.

Chicago speaker deadlines

May 15: Proposals due for Chicago (submit here)
May 23: Notification of acceptance
July 19-21: BriForum Chicago

Chicago attendee deadlines

April 8: Early-Early-bird registration discount ends ($400)
June 10: Early-bird registration discount ends ($200)
July 19-21: BriForum Chicago

In other words, when we open registration later this year, the price will be $1095 until April 8, then $1295 from April 9 - June 10, then $1495 after June 10. Previous BriForum attendees will receive an additional $100 off any of the above prices. (i.e. previous attendees registering before April 8 will only pay $995.) You can register here.

See you all in London in three months!

Hey Bri,


Do you think you could do a direct webcast of the intro and maybe a couple of sessions?


I don't know if Citrix will be there doing a live geek talk, if not then it would be great to have a angry debate/discussion session mixed in with live disgrunted comments. I mean, I read it, now I want to hear it!


A good title for the session could be "Look, here's what I really dislike"
