Call for talk submissions, Madrid 2024

As the LeSS 2024 Conference is coming to the vibrant city of Madrid, and we want you to be at the heart of it! We invite you to not just attend but actively contribute to a gathering that's all about sharing, learning, and growing together in the world of Large-Scale Scrum. Talks, workshops, games, all are good! 

Why Submit Your Talk?

The LeSS Conference is not just another industry event; it's a community-driven platform where each voice matters, especially yours! We're looking for inspiring talks, interactive workshops, and engaging games that bring fresh perspectives to the table. Here's why your submission could make all the difference:

  • A Spotlight for Non-CLTs: We're keen to hear from our Certified LeSS Practitioners. While Certified LeSS Trainers have their space, this is your chance to shine and share your insights and experiences.

  • Real-Life Over Theory: We believe in the power of storytelling and tangible examples. If you've navigated the challenges of LeSS adoptions, transformed your workplace, or innovated within your teams, your real-life examples are gold. Bring your stories to life with photos, boards, videos, and more.

  • Seeking the Unique: Have you been working on something groundbreaking? We're on the lookout for unique talks and workshops that haven't been heard before. Surprise us, challenge us, inspire us!

  • Beyond Textbook LeSS: If your work builds on, uses, or complements LeSS principles in novel ways, we want to hear about it. LeSS 'adjacent' submissions are more than welcome.

  • Diversity and Inclusion: Our aim is to make this conference as inclusive as possible. We want to showcase a diverse array of topics and stories from different industries and perspectives. Your voice is crucial in making this a reality.

The deadline for submissions is the end of March, but why wait? The earlier you submit, the more time we have to work together to polish your presentation and prepare for an unforgettable conference experience.

How to Submit?

Simply head to our information & submission page here and fill out your proposal. The process is straightforward, but the impact you can make is profound.

If you are unsure if your proposal meets these guidelines, or are seeking guidance generally around your submission, please don’t hesitate to email!
