What types of breakout sessions can I submit?
Let’s break down the three session formats so you can consider what approach to take for your proposal.
NEW! Interactive Workshops
Teach Splunk concepts interactively in 60-, 90-, or 120-minute sessions. Attendees will bring their own laptops so they can dive into product use cases with you and walk through real scenarios. Lesson format can vary — Game show? Team problem solving? Get creative! Attendance is capped based on content, and sessions won’t be recorded.
Interactive Workshops
These 45-minute sessions typically consist of 30 minutes of content followed by a 15-minute Q&A. Customers, partners and Splunkers can share use cases, industry trends, thought leadership, product updates or anything you think will appeal to your audience. A demo is optional. Get ready for more than 15 minutes of fame. Your session will be posted to .conf Online for three years.
Breakouts Sessions
All Splunk enthusiasts know there’s power in numbers. Would you like to share the stage with other super-smart people? Do you have a topic you’ve been itching to discuss? Propose a panel breakout and convene your favorite experts to weigh in on topics around security, business resilience and beyond. Like our Breakouts, Panel Sessions are recorded and available on .conf Online for three years.
