The call for papers process for BriForum 2012 Chicago ended over the weekend, and now we have to being the arduous task of choosing around fifty sessions from the 115 or so submissions. Since joining TechTarget, this is now the most work we actually do for BriForum (we leave the other stuff to our awesome event staff). In spite of that, it still takes hours of deliberation. We could still use your help since, after all, this conference is for you!
We'd like to once again invite you to take a survey that involves reading each abstract and choosing from one of three choices: Yes, No, or Maybe. The survey items have been stripped of any identifying information, so all you see are the title and abstracts. It's the same way that Brian and I go through the sessions each year. We first tried this with the London show that took place last week, and the results of the survey helped us choose the sessions because it broke many stalemates between Brian and I. Plus, it also gives you the ability to get a sneak preview of the sessions that may be at the show.
The sessions appear in random order, so any time you can spend in the survey is appreciated, even if you don't finish. If you do complete the survey, you'll be asked to enter your email address for a chance to win free admission to BriForum 2012 Chicago!
Some notes before we pass along the link:
- These are raw and unedited. We haven't looked at them, and there could be the odd vendor sales pitch or spam entry. Don't get concerned if you see a bunch of sales pitches in there--we're quite good at scrubbing those out after eleven shows.
- We have to pick these sessions soon, so this survey will only be open for a few days
- Remember, even if you don't have time to go through all the sessions, any time that you can spend in the survey will be helpful.
With that said, here's the survey. Thanks so much for your time!
