Conditions of Participation

By submitting application for a presentation (workshop, tutorial, lecture, or panel), you accept the following terms and conditions:


The applications will be approved exclusively by the tcworld India conference advisory board. Submitting a presentation does not entitle an applicant to attend the event for free. The decision of the advisory board will be conveyed to all applicants, without providing any reasons for refusal or acceptance.

Obligation to Participate

The presenter undertakes to provide his presentation in accordance with the following guidelines, unless otherwise agreed upon with the conference management. The presenter is generally obligated to present the respective subject objectively, and in a vendor- and product-neutral way.

Personal Participation

The participation at the conference solely refers to the presenter, not to a company or any institution that the presenter may belong to. The presenter provides his or her presentation individually (if necessary with a co-presenter). The presenter treats the presentation subject in accordance with the scope specified in the application, and in an appropriate manner. Note that a selected presentation must be delivered by the selected presenter only. If a presenter revokes his or her attendance, tcworld India reserves the right to cancel the presentation, without replacement. If a presenter is unable to present due to health reasons, he or she should contact the tcworld India conference management as soon as possible.

the announcement text for the presentation
a short profile/bio of the presenter
a photo
an abstract for the conference proceedings: a two-page summary of the presentation as continued text (without slides)
presentation slides
With the submission of these documents, the presenter grants tcworld India (organizer) the full and irrevocable and royalty-free rights of use and the rights of reproduction, public access, and adaption (especially translations).
If the documents are not submitted in due time, tcworld India reserves the right to remove the presentation from the conference program. The presenter does not have any entitlement to compensation.

Participation at the Conference

Each selected presenter receives a free pass for the tcworld India 2015 conference. He or she has the opportunity to attend all lectures and workshops (with prior notice), as well as the trade fair. Lunch and drinks at the beverage cart are free of charge.

Cancellation of an Event

The tcworld India committee (organizer) is entitled to cancel or postpone a tcworld India conference due to serious reasons (for example, closure of the venue, national bundh, strike, etc). If an event is canceled, no claims can be made for the payment of the workshop fee or the refund of expenses.

Audio and Video Recordings

The tcworld India committee (organizer) is entitled to produce audio and video recordings of the event for documentation purposes or self-publishing, if the presenter does not object to this prior to the start of the event.


Presenters have to ensure that they have their own insurance covering accidents, illness, etc. With regard to their presentation materials, presenters will indemnify tcworld India from all claims by third parties that may arise from the infringement of copyrights.
