How to Increase Your Chances of Being Accepted

We receive a large number of submissions, so it is not possible for us to accept all proposals. Positive weighting is given to presentations that are:

  1. First-hand, detailed case studies from personal experiences.
  2. Concise abstracts outlining what attendees will learn and why/how it is useful to them.
  3. Abstracts with topics besides defining data quality and data governance.
  4. Solutions regarding resolving data quality issues not a overview of common problems.
  5. Abstracts for sessions providing takeaways in data governance and data quality.

Presentations may be proposed in the following categories:

  • Conference Sessions (45 minutes)
  • Tutorials and workshops (half day)
