All submitters and speakers should expect to hear from us in early February with the status of your submission(s). Our team will be sending out an update in mid-December with important information and any next action items needed before selections are made.
A group of ASUG Volunteers and other SAP Customers are faced with the difficult task of reviewing all proposals received. Final selections will be made by ASUG Education along with the Content Committee, made up of Volunteers.
There are roughly 500 sessions that are selected to be presented at ASUG Annual Conference. There are also alternate sessions that will be selected to replace any cancelled sessions.
The system will not allow for changes to be made once the Call for Presentations has closed. If you have a change that could impact whether or not your submission could be selected, like adding a customer speaker, please email email@example.com.
All selected speakers will be able to make changes to their sessions once the status notifications are sent in early February.
You do not need to be a member to submit a proposal for 2019 ASUG Annual Conference, but per our Speaker Membership Policy, all speakers are required to be active members of Americas’ SAP Users’ Group (ASUG) in good standing to present at ASUG events.
If your submission is accepted for 2019 ASUG Annual Conference, you will need to confirm membership to speak. Non-member accepted proposals will be placed into a pending status until membership is confirmed. If it is not confirmed by the given deadline, we will have to move forward with replacing the session.
Questions regarding your membership status? Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All speakers are responsible for their own lodging and travel. These expenses are not included within any complimentary or discounted registration invites and will not be covered by ASUG.
You should not submit the same abstract multiple times as this will not increase your likelihood of getting your session chosen. Submit to the track that best fits your topic and tag any additional tracks you would want to consider your session. Duplicate abstracts will be deleted and only the first submission will be considered.
Our volunteers will be looking at quality of each individual proposal, rather than the number submitted by a particular speaker, company, etc. Last year we received over 2,000 submissions for roughly 400 speaking slots, so make sure you are focusing on the quality of your proposal before submitting.
