API Specifications Conference (ASC) 2022 – Call for Proposals

By Blog

After a fantastic inaugural event in 2019, successful virtual events in 2020 and 2021, the API Specifications Conference (ASC) is back in-person in 2022, from September 19th through September 21st. Mark your calendars!

ASC 2022 will include keynotes, sessions, panel talks and open discussion 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-level introductions to API specifications all the way through expert recommended practices and forward-looking sessions on API specifications and standards. The OpenAPI Specification, gRPC, AsyncAPI, GraphQL, RAML, API Blueprint, ODATA, JSON Schema, and other formats, all make for great topics at this event. 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 discussions not only enable attendees to get familiar with these specifications and standards but use them in practice.

API practitioners and enthusiasts involved across the full spectrum of API lifecycle activities will attend ASC 2022. We’re looking for API designers, API developers, API testers, API technical writers, API product managers, API security, API Operations, enterprise architects, and many more personas to actively participate. We encourage and welcome you to make submissions.
