(UPDATE Feb 15th: We've updated this post to contain the additional 22 sessions that came in over the past week. There's still time to get your session in. Deadline is Friday Feb 19th!)
If you don’t know what BriForum is, it’s our vendor-neutral, highly-techincal geek gathering focusing on desktop virtualization, enterprise end user computing, and enterprise mobility management. We recently released all the videos from our two BriForum 2015 conferences, so check those out here. (Almost 100 hours of videos from the top technical minds in the world, all free!)
BriForum is a community-driven event, and anyone is able to speak. If you’d like to present at one (or both) of our BriForum 2016 events, details about our call for papers process are here. Unlike other industry conferences, if you’re selected to speak at BriForum, we’ll pay for your airfare, hotel, and (of course) your conference admission. (Even people who work at vendors are allowed to submit sessions, though if you work at a vendor you’re not allowed to submit a session about the products your company makes.)
We have two more weeks left before our call for papers deadline which is FRIDAY, February 19th. Here are the titles of all the sessions we’ve received so far, so if you’re thinking about submitting a session, this might give you an idea of the kinds of things that are still needed.
To be clear, not all of these sessions will be at BriForum 2016, these are just the submissions we’ve received so far, and we’ll pick the sessions from this list. So if you want to speak, check out out our rules and details and get your submission in by the end of next week!
