Call for Papers

Comference is an online event about humans in tech. How is your personal development? What about your mental health? Please submit your proposal if you have an interesting topic related to people working in the tech industry.

We also welcome technical talks related to PHP, open source work or software development in general.


  • presentations and interviews: a length of 15, 30 and 45 minutes and prefer pre-recorded talks
  • interactive talks: if you want to be creative in the way you involve the audience, feel free to drop any ideas!
  • other formats are possible; please get in touch regarding logistics

During the event we host a Discord server as an online hallway-track with room for discussion and socializing. We encourage speakers to get in touch with their audience and exchange extra materials.

The best way to get an impression of the event and related topics is to have a look at our last year edition page. Some topics from last year:

  • PHP and its ecosystem
  • online applications
  • personal and professional development
  • remote work, physical and mental health
  • ethics and diversity in tech
  • user experience and usability
  • tales from the open source community
