ASC 2021 Call For Proposals!

By April 15, 2021Blog

After a successful virtual event last year, we are back again this fall. Mark your calendar for the return of the API Specifications Conference (ASC), this year as an all-digital event on September 28th and 29th, 9:00 am – 3:00 pm PDT. 

ASC 2021 will include keynotes, sessions, and open discussions on specifications and standards behind the cutting-edge technologies that chart the future of APIs. And we want to hear your talk proposals!

We are looking for talks that range from beginner introductions to API specifications through best practices and forward-looking sessions on API specifications and standards, including OpenAPI Specification, gRPC, AsyncAPI, GraphQL, RAML, API Blueprint, oDATA, JSON Schema, and others. We want to hear your talks on how you are using specifications and standards in practice. Topics can include but are not limited to design, testing, security, lifecycle, runtime, governance, and developer experience. In-depth talks and discussions will enable attendees to get familiar with these specifications and standards and how to use them to deliver better API experiences.

The Call for Talks is open: 

* Submit your talk: https://sessionize.com/api-specifications-conference-2021/

* Submissions Deadline: June 11, 11:59pm PDT

If you need help or advice for your submissions, please contact speakers@openapis.org. If you are a first-time and/or underrepresented speaker, we especially want to help you submit a talk and are available to help you work through talk ideas or how to structure your proposal. 

We’re looking forward to your proposals and participation that will make ASC 2021 a great event again this year!
