Why Call for Speakers in an Unconference?

ALE  is an unconference and we emphasize the informal exchange of information and ideas between participants, rather than following a conventionally structured program.
By keeping the format, we want to provide our audience with the best and highest quality sharing moments.

From the speaker's submissions, we will select a few awesome talks and mini-workshops as Seed Sessions.

Also, we will share with all participants the proposals from our ALEsome candidates, therefore giving our community the opportunity of building an amazing and disruptive agenda.

Conference Themes

The theme of the ALE 2019 Unconference is Re-All Agile, which means: Re-Think Agile, Re-Set Agile for All beyond software, Re-New Agile for the fast changes of this century, Re-Write Agile Manifesto for the current reality, Agile for All in or out of software development.

Given the theme, ALE will be focused on Agile working, software creation and delivery, teams, practice, and new business thinking.
These themes will be organized as several tracks. Other categories may be proposed.

Product Design UXD, User experience, Customer
Product Management Product Discovery, Business Analysis, Product Management
Organizational Agility Cculture, Personnel Management, Self-organization, Leadership, Team practices
Agile Practices Coaching, Retrospectives, Planning
Lean Practices Lean Thinking, Lean Manufacturing, Lean Processes, Lean Transition
Agility in non-tech context Healthcare, Finances, Education, Human Resources
Agile Engineering Practices Engineering, Programming, Testing and Operations, e.g. TDD, BDD, Continuous Delivery, Architecture, Reliability

We encourage submissions in the non-tech context track.
We like to add some variety to the program and are also interested in hearing about new technologies in general, approaches to innovation and learning.


The session will be 20 minutes in length. Double sessions (40 minutes) are also available.


All submissions should be made using the online form.

Submissions should clearly include the following elements:

  • Submission title plus short synopsis (for marketing) and long synopsis (for conference program),
  • duration (20 or 40 minutes),
  • delivery (e.g. presentation, interactive workshop),
  • the most appropriate theme,
  • Speaker name(s) plus biography, headshot photo, contact details, and experience.

We aim to create a balanced program with space for new speakers as well as those who regularly speak on the conference circuit while avoiding an unintentional bias in any direction.
Therefore we ask speakers to indicate whether they consider themselves an experienced conference speaker, regular speaker or a new speaker.

Multiple Submissions

Speakers can submit several sessions with a limit of 3 individual or shared sessions.
