Speak at JSHeroes

The call for papers for the 2024 event is closed.

We have received 340 proposals until the end of December 2023. Speakers will be announced sometime in early February.

✍ What we are looking for

JSHeroes is a single track 2-day conference dedicated to the JS and Web ecosystems. We expect that each talk fits between 25 and 30 minutes. If you require more time, please mention this in the application. We are looking for a multitude of topics and perspectives, but most of all we value:

  • Original topics, presented for the first time.
  • Practical ideas that attendees can apply at work the next day.
  • Trends and hot topics which are relevant today and beyond.
  • Fresh perspectives on the development ecosystem.
  • The human side of software engineering.

Our theme for 2024 is “The journey to a mature ecosystem”. We want to spotlight some of the established patterns and architectures that reached maturity and are becoming industry standards. Along with these, we want to tackle software complexity and dealing with legacy code and legacy systems. Each year our theme is broad and not all talk will be connected with it, so consider it more like a line connecting different ideas and topics, rather then a restriction.

📈 How the selection will happen

Each year we receive hundreds of proposals from which we can unfortunately only pick a handful. With this in mind, we created a team of world wide subject matter experts that will go through the proposals and will decide what to include on the final agenda. This is a rough estimation of our schedule and process:

  • Each member of the commitee will go through the anonymized proposals and rate them.
  • All proposals that are above a threshold qualify to the second stage.
  • In the second stage we de-anonymize the remaining proposals and start head-to-head comparisons on the similar topics.
  • One by one, we will fill in the slots in our agenda, based on the topics we feel can bring the most value to our audience.
  • All the speakers will get a response, positive or negative, at the end of the process.
