We look forward to gathering and learning from each other as we endeavor to promote the LabVIEW community. Also look fro the workshops that can be attended for an additional fee. There will be some 2 day workshops on Monday and Tuesday prior to the conference and some 1 day workshops on the Friday after the conference.

Make your plans now so as not to miss our first annual event.

Coronavirus Update – March 20, 2020

We appreciate everyone’s support of the GDevCon N.A. conference. As promised the Board of Directors has closely monitored the unfolding circumstances around the Coronavirus.

Based on the current situation, and projections for the future we have decided to pursue moving GDevCon N.A. from July to the last week of October or first week of November. We will advise the new dates once we have completed the new arrangements.

With this being pushed out we are extending the window for submitting presentation topics. IF you have an idea and would like to present please go ahead and submit it.

GDevCon N.A. COVID-19 Response

The GDevCON N.A. Board of Directors is concerned about the safety and welfare of potential attendees to the GDevCon N.A. conference.

Change to a 2 Day Conference

When we were originally planning this conference, we planned on a 3 day conference, mostly because that is how long the CLA Summit was. After much feedback and discussion (particularly with former organizers of the CLA Summit) we have decided that 3 days was a bit ambitious for our first conference. We feel that a 2 day conference will be alleviate the burden on us as organizers and will help us provide a better experience for attendees.

A couple things that influenced our decision:

  • We got some feedback that a 2 day conference was easier to justify to management than a 3 day conference, especially given the current economic state. 

  • Even though we got enough presentation submissions for 3 days, cutting it down to 2 days allows us to select only the absolute best presentations. 

  • We are planning on hosting some workshops in addition to the conference. Cutting the conference down to 2 days gives us more options for scheduling workshops both before and after the conference.

We appreciate the support of those presenting and planning on attending the Conference. We have already discussed this with our existing sponsors and they are all on board.

After this first conference we will reevaluate and consider extending the conference to 3 days for future events. 

Stay tuned for future updates.  We are still finalizing a few things before we release tickets, but that should be happening soon.

Deadline Extended to Feb 29th

We’ve received several great presentation ideas, but we still need a few more. We also had several people comment that they needed a little more time, so we have extended the submission deadline until the end of the month.

You don’t need a full presentation, you just need a good abstract. Check out presentation guidelines to see what we are looking for and increase your chances of having your presentation accepted.

Note that even though we prefer original content, we will consider something you have presented previously. So if you don’t have time to come up with something new, but would still like to present, please submit previous work. We will take a look at it.

I’ve also had several people ask if I thought their idea was interesting enough. My response was to submit it anyway. If it was valuable enough for you to consider putting together a presentation, it is probably valuable to others.

You contributing your unique perspective and ideas are what will make this conference an amazing experience for everyone involved. Help GDevCon N.A. live up to the promise of being North America’s Premiere Graphical Programming Conference. Submit your idea today!

Deadline for Paper Submissions

We’ve set a deadline of February 3rd for paper submissions. If you have something you would like to share with the community, please submit your idea before then.
