Prepare now to design the future

Designers are constantly asked to design for the future—a future that by its nature is a moving target. The O’Reilly Design Conference will provide designers with the skills, connections, and inspiration they need to shape the products and services of today and tomorrow.

The O’Reilly Design Conference call for speakers is open

Design shapes the future. This has always been true. But design’s impact has fresh force now—when the powerful combination of design and technology is upending products, services, and the very nature of competition. Whatever your title, if you contribute to design decisions, you need to be ready. The O’Reilly Design Conference arms attendees with forward-thinking design skills, connections, and inspiration.

We're looking for speakers to present talks, tutorials, and demonstrations that span business, design, and technical topics of critical relevance. Are you making a significant impact on your organization—and the world beyond—through design? Are you radically enhancing the user experience? Have you failed spectacularly and learned something important that others should know? If so, we encourage you to submit a proposal to speak at this event.

The O'Reilly Design Conference happens March 19–22, 2017 at the Westin St. Francis in San Francisco. See our call for speakers page for more details on the topics we are interested in, plus tips for presenting a great proposal.
