SOCAP Open Session Ideas

Review the 2023 SOCAP Open Submissions!

The submission period for SOCAP Open has now ended.

SOCAP23 content curation: We take the curation process seriously — it goes beyond selecting and organizing quality presenters and topics. We want our attendees to be a part of the session, a part of the takeaways that build a better future and help advance our community’s global mission.

This year, we have evolved our curation process, moving toward a distributed approach to building our conference programming. Along with those selected through SOCAP Open, the sessions within each content track for SOCAP23 are co-created and curated by Content Curation Councils of 39 experts from around the world working closely with our content and production teams.

Learn more about the SOCAP23 theme, tracks, and content curation process, and meet the Content Curation Councils here!

Our schedule for SOCAP23 Open:

April 2 to April 15: Upvote your favorite session! The community voting period is live. Help shape the content further by casting a vote for session submissions.

April 16 to April 28: Committee reading and selection. The SOCAP23 content committee reviews all submissions, discusses them as a group, and uses a decision matrix to make final content selections.

Week of June 1: Acceptance Letters sent to session organizers. If your session is accepted into SOCAP23, you will receive a letter detailing the next steps to confirm your participation.

June 15: SOCAP Open session confirmations due. If you are unable to confirm your session by this time, the content team will give your slot to an alternate contributor.

Early summer: Public announcement of selected Open sessions for SOCAP23.
