About the Event

How is Outlier structured?

There will be two types of sections within this conference: curated and open, with the schedule alternating between the two.


Curated sections will look similar to the standard “conference structure”, with a higher focus on talks, and only one or two talks running at once. The open sections will consist of **[unconference](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unconference#:~:text=An unconference is a participant,presentations and top-down organization.)-style** sessions, will have several tracks running concurrently, and will be fleshed out based on attendee interests and preferences.

Curated sections

We had an open call for speakers in October and November of 2020. From our applicants, we curated a lineup of speakers, with a focus on including a diverse range of topics, speakers, and perspectives. (Read more about the process in this Nightingale article.)

To complement these longer talks, we are also including Lighting Talk sessions that are a group of smaller talks from our attendees on a variety of topics, picked by the attendees themselves. Note: We're collecting submissions for Lightning talks until February 1st, 2021. Send us your videos! :D
