SOCAP Open submission period is from June 8 to July 6!
SOCAP Open is core to what SOCAP is about. We ask our community for their ideas to help drive the conversation at our flagship event — everyone is invited to share, no matter where you live, what job you hold, or the size of your organization. Each year, hundreds of ideas are submitted through SOCAP Open providing up to half of the event’s content.
We’re also excited to share a glimpse of how we are working with the SOCAP community to develop engaging and impactful content this year. Since we last gathered in person in 2019, so much has changed — the way we approach our work, the urgency of the challenges we are working to solve, and how we hold ourselves accountable for making it happen. As a community, we must respond, accelerate, and lead.
Before sharing your submission, please read our updated guidance for SOCAP22 Open submissions and review the SOCAP22 themes. You can also check out the current submissions to see what others have submitted so far!
Get unboxed. Get interactive. Unleash your creativity.
The SOCAP22 Open Timeline and Process
The SOCAP Content team curates content from many sources: listening to the field, reading, art, partners, and SOCAP Open. We synthesize lots of information to bring you leading-edge ideas and practical applications. Here’s how we handle the submissions from SOCAP Open:
June 8 to July 6: Pitch your session idea! Submit your proposal to the SOCAP Open online portal (below).
July 7 to July 15: Upvote your favorite session! The community voting period is live. Help shape the content further by casting a vote for session submissions.
July 16 to July 21: Committee reading and selection. A committee of readers, including the SOCAP22 content team, read all submissions, discuss as a group, and use a decision matrix to make final content selections.
July 22: Acceptance Letters sent to session organizers. If your session is accepted into SOCAP22, you will receive a letter detailing the next steps to confirm your participation.
July 29: 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.
We will announce accepted SOCAP Open sessions for SOCAP22 before the end of summer. We can’t wait to read your submission(s)!
