Presentation requirements

PDF Days Europe 2022 - Working Together!PDF Days presentations must reference PDF technology but are otherwise unlimited. Sessions may include (non-product) demonstrations, videos, etc. Topics presented as use cases, best practices, research results and future developments are especially welcomed.

Sessions must be fundamentally educational rather than promotional. Proposals are selected by the Program Committee based on interest and the educational value of the proposed content.

Each session will be 40 minutes; please assume 30 minutes for presentation and leave 10 minutes for questions.
