This was CEBIT d!talk 2018


Corporate Lectures are presentations that focus on the respective companies or their products and services. There is a charge for these presentation slots.

Invited Lectures is an opportunity for thought leaders, founders, scientists, heads of technology, heads of research, C-level executives and/or CIOs from user companies to give a presentation. A defined number of speaking slots are available per summit.

To apply, just click on the corresponding form. To evaluate the suggestion, we need the following information:

Company/institution, name of speaker, position, e-mail, topic, abstract, presentation language, name of submitter, company, e-mail and phone number.

Yes and no – the application itself is free of charge. If your presentation is shortlisted as a Corporate Lecture, we will contact you with a specific quotation for inclusion in our program. If you receive an Invited lecture, your participation is free of charge.

The review process takes time, as we need to check how and where we can integrate your presentation into the conference program. As a rule, we will contact you within a period of six weeks.

A rearranging of the presentation content is possible only upon approval of the CEBIT program planning team. Minor updates to the content can however be made up to approximately two weeks before the event.

The conference is aimed at an international audience, and for that reason your talk needs to be in English.

No, participation in the d!talk conference program is available to any company, organization or speaker.
