Naked Element Ltd. presents MobDevCon (website coming soon) the first Mobile Development Conference in Norfolk. The conference will be held on Wednesday 3rd of July at The Hethel Engineering Centre near Wymondham in Norfolk, UK. Naked Element would like to invite proposals for sessions.

  • Session length 45 or 90 minutes (workshops should be 90 minutes)
  • Mobile platform
  • Session description (max 500 words)
  • Indication or whether you are happy to have your session filmed

If your submission is accepted you will be notified by the 1st of May 2013. Having a session accepted entitles the speaker to free entry to the conference and, if appropriate, free travel to the conference and one night’s accommodation booked by us. We hope to have all sessions filmed and published freely on the web. Please let us know if you do not want to have your session filmed.

We welcome submissions on any subject related to mobile development. We’re looking for beginner and intermediate sessions on Android and IOS as well as other popular platforms, cross platform technologies and web based mobile apps. However, please do not be limited by this, we’re happy to consider any mobile related submission.

Type of Sessions
We would like to see two main session formats:

  • Presentation with slides
    • 45 minutes in length, although double sessions will be available if needed (90 minutes)

  • Hands on keyboard workshop
    • 90 minutes in length
    • Max audience size of 24 or 16 (to fit the workshop rooms available)

Participants for workshops would be expected to bring their own laptops. Wireless will be available. Workshops will require participants to sign up in advance. If specific software is required speakers must make sure they allow time for this to be installed and configured or arrive early on the morning of the conference to help participants set up their laptops. A session the night before can be arranged if required. Please let us know when you submit your session.

All sessions must be entirely technical in nature. Any session that appears to be a sales pitch will not be accepted.

MobDevCon has a maximum capacity of 80 delegates (plus sponsors). We expect to attract predominantly developers, but you should also expect to find entrepreneurs, managers, testers, enthusiasts and all sorts of other people, even agents!
