  • Speaker mentoring if you want it.
  • A great time
  • A fun event that’s different to anything else out there

Speaker Selection

To ensure a fair process, selection will be done by a blinded process where the reviewers will only see the abstract. To ensure this process is truely blinded, please do not add any personal/identifying information to your abstract.

The number of days you can attend will not be used during selection. So don’t worry if you can only make 1 date, that still works for us.

Organisers will not be submitting sessions. But will be used to fill in should we have any last minute holes in the agenda.

How to submit

We are using Sessionize again this year due to it’s simplicity. To submit your session head over to ‘Data Relay 2022 Sessions‘. If you fun into any problems please get in touch


If you have any questions please get in touch via our Contact Form, or via Sessionize. We want to help as many speakers as we can, so if you have any concerns or want advice we’re happy to help out.
