If your submission is accepted you will be notified by the 15th of February 2014. 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 as many sessions as possible filmed and published freely on the web. Please let us know if you do not want to have your session filmed. 


This year we are more specific in our requirements for sessions. There will be four tracks:
  • iOS
  • Android
  • Cross Platform
  • Workshop
We’re looking for up to three sessions in each track. Each session will be at either beginner or intermediate level. At the beginner level we’re specifically looking for ‘getting started’ type sessions for novice mobile developers. However, we will consider other beginner sessions. 

Type of Sessions

There are two 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, although double sessions will be available if needed (180 minutes)
Participants for workshops are 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 if this is required 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. 


Last year MobDevCon sold out it’s full capacity of 80 delegates (plus sponsors). This year our capacity is about 100 (plus sponsors). We attract predominantly developers, but you should also expect to find entrepreneurs, managers, testers, enthusiasts and all sorts of other people, even agents!
