Presentation Guidelines for Data Modelling and Data Governance Conference

Presentation Guidelines for Data Modelling and Data Governance Conference

What sort of presentation proposals are we looking for ?

The Data Modelling and Data Governance Conference is a one-day event in Parker Hotel Brussels Airport (Belgium) on October 17th, 2019.

In the age of digital transformation, big data, data-driven business and Industrie 4.0, good data modelling skills and a great data management architecture and infrastructure is crucial. During this one-day conference on Data Modelling and Data Governance, we look at strategies, guidelines and technologies for supporting the data management capabilities of the future. This includes, but is not limited to master data management solutions, next-generation data integration solutions, big data technology architectures, future-proof data modelling techniques, enterprise data governance, etc. If data is your strategic asset, why is good data modelling and data governance so often seen as an afterthought ?

We are looking for people who want to present their practical experiences, customer stories, case studies, lessons learned, practical solutions, tips & tricks, new trends and technologies, etc to like-minded professionals. We prefer practical how-to topics based on experiences and case studies rather than theoretical or abstract topics. We encourage new speakers to apply, particularly practitioners with lots of experience in the field, even if they have no prior speaking experience - we can help you with this.

We have chosen for a 30 minute presentation format. This means that each presentation needs to be focused, built around two or three key messages, and based on practical experiences that illustrate the essence of your messages.

We prefer presentations showcasing real-life and "been there, done that" stories, as these are typically most appreciated by the audience. Theory on Data Modelling and Data Governance is welcome, but preferably supported by practical examples.

All submissions are peer reviewed and evaluated based on originality, content, relevancy and value for participants.

A speaker who is selected for the conference programme, gets free access to the conference. Co-speakers of a selected presentation get a 50% reduction. We do not cover the cost of travel or hotel for conference speakers.
