We are excited to welcome you as a speaker for Open Source Summit North America 2022. The event is happening both in person at JW Marriott in Austin, Texas and virtually on Tuesday, June 21 – Friday, June 24, 2022.
Please click through the tabs on this page to access information.
Your registration serves as confirmation that you will be speaking, and you will need to register by Monday, May 2, 2022. Please see your notification for the discount code.
If you have a co-speaker or panelists, please confirm with them before selecting your session format. All session presenters + panelists will need to align with the talk type delivery mode (i.e. for any session, a primary speaker cannot present in person with a co-speaker who can only speak virtually. Both speakers would need to present virtually).
If you plan to attend in person, please be aware that anyone coming on site must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, and you can review that information on our Health + Safety page. Please check back for updates as we get closer to the event.
All speakers receive complimentary registration and any co-speakers or panelists can register using the same details provided above. If, after your talk is accepted, you add a speaker that was not included in your initial submission, that/those speaker(s) will not receive complimentary registration, but will receive a 40% discount off the prevailing registration rate. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.

Presentation Template & Slide Upload
All speakers are required to submit their final presentation slides ahead of the event. In addition to providing a hard copy for accessibility purposes, we find that adding the presentations before the event helps to drive interest in attending the session. The deadline for presentations is Friday, June 17.
To upload slides:
An optional presentation template will be available to download but is not required. Please see below for the various templates, and reach out to email@example.com if you need assistance or would like to request an additional format.
Inclusive Speaker Orientation Online Course
In collaboration with the National Center for Women in Technology (NCWIT), the Linux Foundation has created an online course designed to teach the viewer about inclusion, diversity, and unconscious bias. We highly recommend all of our speakers watch the course to learn tips/tools to use when speaking to encourage inclusivity in presentations and messaging.
Code of Conduct
Please read, and abide, by our code of conduct. Our code of conduct is strictly enforced. We ask that speakers especially review this code of conduct and are careful to be inclusive in the words and images used during their presentations.
If you have any other platform, speaker, or schedule-related questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
