Call for Speakers

How it works and what we're looking for


Pick between a Lightning Talk (10 minutes), a Focus Talk (20 minutes) or a Deep Dive (45 minutes) to let us all learn from your experience in the best way.

PUSH is a single track conference. That means no matter what format you pick, you can be sure to have the undivided attention of the audience at the grand stage.


We are particularly looking for submissions in these areas:

  • Case studies on practical interface design, delightful UI details or insightful research
  • Examples of innovative processes to create better products
  • Projects that take UX beyond the screen
  • New approaches to visualizing and communicating complex information


The call for speakers ends on June 15, 2019. We'll then take a few weeks to review all submissions and will get back to you before the summer.
If you want to attend the event in any case as a guest, we recommend you book a ticket now to get the best price. Should you be invited as a speaker, we'll refund the ticket fee.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Prepare your talk proposal content. This should include an abstract, a few sample slides and for longer talks a speaking sample e.g. as video. If you have no or little speaking experience, you're very invited to give a 10 minute Lightning Talk a try! Experience is what makes you a master.
  2. Submit your material via the form above when you're ready. Please remember the deadline.
  3. Our curators' board will review your submission. If it fits the narrative, meets certain qualities and is no duplicate or overlap to existing content, we will get in touch with you and formally accept your submission.
  4. All speakers receive free admission to the conference. If you already purchased a ticket, we will refund the ticket fee in case you're later selected as a speaker. For certain talk formats, we also cover travel and accommodation costs.
