Vaughn Stewart posted this morning that the VMworld Call For Papers closes on Friday, April 9. Last Friday, I posted that it closed, well, last Friday. I think it’s safe to say that both of us encourage you to get moving!
You don’t need slides prepared yet, just a 250 word or less session description, three takeaway points you want to convey, a short biography for yourself, a short description of your speaking history, and knowledge of your own mailing address. :) Took me 30 minutes to do.
As for the date, I guess it depends on where you look! The main VMworld page says there are two days until things close. The “Key Dates” page says April 2:
I’m just glad I’m not going insane… could have sworn it was April 2! I can still edit my submission, so I guess things are still open. While the extension is great news for procrastinators, I hope that the miscommunication over dates can be resolved. Regardless, you have 30 minutes between now and Friday, get your submission in before something else changes! :)
