At QCon, we prefer Engineers over Evangelists, Practicitioners over Trainers/Coaches, and Team Leads over Consultants. That is not to say we don't find value on the people on the right, we just prefer those on the left. This simple mantra guides our editorial content. We want to hear from the people who are living with decisions and implementations. This is core to what makes QCon QCon.

There are 15 primary themes at QCon. Each of the major themes is organized into what we call tracks. A track represents five curated talks and one panel. All of the sessions are led by domain experts who guide the selection process. If a track is sponsored by a vendor, it is separated from the main editorial tracks and labeled as sponsored. These are separate from the 15 editorial tracks at QCon. You will never find sponsored content hidden into the main editorial content at the conference.

Groups as small as 3 attendees working for the same company are eligible for a group discount.
We also offer our returning QCon and QCon Plus attendees an alumni discount.

Outside of the main 15 tracks, QCon will offer additional sponsored tracks. If a track is sponsored by a vendor, it is separated from the main editorial tracks and labeled as sponsored. These are separate from the 15 editorial tracks at QCon. One of the core tenants of QCon is transparency, you will never find sponsored content hidden into the main editorial content at the conference.

The place of supplies of services in respect of admission to this QCon event is dictated by where the event actually takes place. In this case as the conference is to be held in London, the VAT place of supply is the UK and so we are required to charge UK VAT to an attendee and file and submit the VAT charged quarterly to the HM Revenue and Customs.

We do not have a formal CFP and usually directly invite our speakers, however, we do have a submission form for spontaneous submissions
