The theme of this year’s event is Combustion, the exhilarating – and sometimes terrifying – point of no return, where nothing will ever be the same again.

Past events have included the following speakers:

Prospective speakers can apply online until Jan. 9. Those interested in attending the event as an audience member will have the chance to apply online early in the new year.
