Share your story

We invite you to contribute to LXDCON 2018 by answering our call for action!


Our aim is to make part of LXDCON 2018 a user generated conference. We believe you are all experts and we would like you to share your expertise. Please tell us what you could contribute to make this day even more memorable and we will try to reserve a spot for you in our program.


Important to know.

Before you submit your proposal please take a moment to read this:


  • We try to incorporate as many proposals as possible but there's a limited number of spots available. There's always a chance your proposal will not be selected.
  • Our selection criteria are based on the quality and relevance of the proposal and how it fits with the rest of our program.
  • The deadline for submitting proposals is Friday January 5 2018.
  • We will announce if your proposal is selected on Friday January 19 2018.
  • If your proposal is selected, you will receive a free conference ticket and we will get in touch to work out the details.

You can either get a table in our design studio to demonstrate and apply your own method or tool or you can offer a design session like a workshop or break out session.

Share your story by doing an inspiring talk, leading a vivid discussion, presenting a best practice or even a worst practice, as long as there's a lot to learn. Talks are 30 minutes max.

Showcase one of your designs by letting the people experience your creation in our playground. This is the place to show your best work in an interactive and engaging way.
