01 The call for speakers is exclusively for the Zero+ Stage and not for plenary or other sessions.

02 Applications will only be accepted from speakers who can present in person in Cape Town.

03 All applications will be reviewed by the Programme Committee. You will be notified by email if your application is successful. All decisions are final.

04 Please note that shortlisted applicants will be required to share a short 3-5-minute video with some insight into their presentation (you can record this on your phone.)
