Call For Papers
Are you an expert Builder or Designer making the next generation of Wearable and Internet of Things computing devices?
Do you have solid teaching experience and credentials? If you answered yes to any of these questions, apply to speak at Wearables TechCon, July 18-20, 2016, at the San Jose Convention Center!
Wearables TechCon is for builders, buyers, designers and OEMs making the next generation of wearable and IoT computing devices. Attendee job titles may vary, but they will be relying on you to empower them to get the edge they need in developing, designing, and seeing the larger industry picture in verticals that include smart fabrics, fitness, healthcare, Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality, and smartwatches.
Wearables TechCon kicks off on Monday with 45-minute technical classes and panels. Tuesday and Wednesday contain dozens of more technical classes and panel sessions.
When you propose a class, be clear about the objective. Expect to teach to your session description. For example, if you say that your session is advanced, it must be advanced. If you say your session is hands-on, it must be hands-on.
