We didn’t want the story to end…so we extended the deadline! It’s not too late to tell your tale of mobile workspace success at Citrix Synergy 2015, May 12–14 in Orlando. The Call for Topics has been extended to December 7—apply to be a presenter today.

Recap: how Call for Topics works

Really good stories help lessons “stick,” so the Call for Topics puts a premium on real-world examples of proven solutions and how you solved the toughest challenges. Judges are looking for proposals on deep-dive technical topics, and attendees want practical guidance on planning, design and implementation—in other words, how to get projects completed on time, within budget, with great results. Remember to make your proposal educational, technically detailed and credible, and support it with case studies and demos.

The most requested topics include:

  • Mobile workspace solutions
  • Enterprise mobility management
  • BYOD and hybrid cloud solutions
  • Desktop and windows app virtualization
  • Securing mobile data and applications
  • Social and real-time collaboration technologies

The selection process

Proposals are judged by analysts, enterprise IT professionals and other industry thought leaders, who evaluate submissions by how interesting, relevant and technically rich they are—and how experienced the speaker is.
