3 great tips on how to write a winning call for papers proposal
At BIM Show Live, we use a call for papers process to find speakers for our content streams. We want to find people who are on the front-line in the technological delivery of digital construction processes and methodology.
Each year we offer the opportunity for construction industry professionals to take to our stage and tell us all about the exciting developments they are delivering and experiences with their projects.
The call for papers process is pretty straightforward: you have an idea for a talk, tell us what makes it brilliant and, hey-presto, you’re in! Well, so long as you meet a few criteria and beat the competition …
James Austin, Construction Industry Strategist for Autodesk and co-founder of BIM Show Live, stepped in front of the camera for the BIM Show Live team to tell us what makes a winning call for papers submission. Here, he gives us his top three tips on what the selection panel are looking for.
A sneaky insight into what James said: “We believe these streams give everyone the opportunity to tell their story. If you’re a dreamer, a geek, a pragmatist or a doer, then we want to hear from you. If you share our passion for integrity, technology and the construction industry, then what is holding you back? Tell us what you’d like to share and hopefully we’ll welcome you to the best BIM show on the planet!”
