Submit a speech idea for the Contactless Intelligence Spring Conference 2011

Submit an Abstract to speak at CISC 2011

XThe organisers of the 5th Contactless Intelligence Spring Conference (CISC) are delighted to open the call for papers for next year’s event which is to be held in London on April 14th, 2011. We therefore invite potential speakers to submit an abstract for consideration, especially those individuals with extensive experience in the practical application of contactless technology, those at the forefront of implementation and roll-outs, market analysts and end users/regional councils that have (or are currently implementing) a cutting-edge case history.

In order to receive speaking priority as well as presence in the conference panel sessions, papers should be submitted by 30th September 2010 to Contactless Intelligence Programm Director Susan Hicks

Please note that although we highly encourage submissions from the international community, contributions must be submitted in English.

Successful contributions will be evaluated on the basis of relevance (please note the conference themes below), content, originality and expertise/experience of the speaker. New case histories, especially when presented by implementers of contactless technology (or jointly with the prime supplier/integrator), will be favoured, as will speeches from top-level company or organisational representatives. N.B This should not dissuade submissions by those with specialist technical knowledge, or those leading research efforts.

Submissions must provide the following information:

  • Speaker’s name
  • Speaker’s position
  • Speaker’s company/organisation
  • Speaker’s short biography approx. 200 words
  • Speaker’s photo
  • Speaker’s full contact details (address, email, telephone)

  • Summary of the presentation (max 200 words).

Acknowledgement will be provided on receipt.
