The Online Community for Tiny Living and the Tiny House Summit
Thank you for your interest in presenting at the 2017 Tiny House Summit! Conference.
The Summit will take place Monday, February 20th through Friday, February 25th. It will be free to attend each day, and anyone who is interested in presenting is encouraged to submit a proposal, including first-time presenters.
All submissions must relate directly to tiny houses and tiny living, and presentations must be non-commercial. For-profit or commercial sponsorship or presentation inquiries should be made to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Proposals can be submitted until February 13th, 2017. We encourage you to submit your proposal as early as possible because as soon as a proposal is accepted, you are given the ability to select from the available presentation times (the time choices become increasingly limited closer to the event). You may submit more than one proposal, but we will give priority to providing as many presenters the chance to present as possible.
Your presentation proposal, once submitted, will be listed on the Tiny House Summit pages of the TinyIsBeautiful.com website, with the opportunity for members of this network to view, comment on, and/or "like" your presentation proposal. This will give you and the other members of this site the chance to share ideas and to make connections before, during, and after the conference. Additionally, it will allow us to gauge the popularity of your topic or approach. It is our intention that all serious proposals be given the opportunity to be presented.
Presentations should be at least 20 minutes in length, and all sessions must be completed (including Q&A) within one hour. All sessions will be held in the Blackboard Collaborate online platform. You will be responsible for familiarizing yourself with the web conferencing platform. You can take a look at the training materials at the Learning Revolution training page, and we will provide you with information on live training sessions where you can ask questions as we get closer to the event.
Legal and Licensing:
By submitting to present, you agree that your session recording will be available to watch for free live and as a recording during the day of your presentation; and that you understand that we have the right to include a recorded version of your presentation in the bonus package sold for the Summit. Other than allowing us to use and package your recording for commercial purposes, you retain full rights to your presentation and your recordings, which we will make available for you to download and post in any way you like. If we approach you about making your presentation a "featured keynote" and you are open to it, we will send you a separate agreement.
