Audience: Please watch this short video by Jack Molisani for information on the audience at LavaCon and the types of sessions we want in our 2020 program.


Conference Theme: Connecting Content Silos Across the Enterprise

We are looking for companies that have successfully adopted a unified content strategy, connected multiple content silos, brought disparate groups together to operate as a team, and so on. Tell us worked, and what didn’t!

Speaker Proposals: We are soliciting proposals for breakout sessions (60 minutes), workshops (half day or full day), and case studies (30 minutes).

Program Tracks in our 2020 program include:

  • Content Strategy and User Experience (UX)
  • Content Operations (MarComm and TechComm)
  • Learning Management (LMS, Distance Learning, etc.)
  • People and Project Management
  • Tools and Technology (DITA, CMS, etc.)
  • Case Studies


  • Content Operations is a term summarizing the processes, people, and technologies for strategically planning, delivering, and analyzing content.
  • Proposal deadline: 28 February 2020, 5 pm EST (UTC -5:00 hours)
  • While we welcome marketing-related sessions, we would prefer that sessions address how marketing interacts with other departments (not just sessions on how to do content marketing).
  • One speaker in each breakout session is comp’ed into the conference in exchange for speaking. Your organization should pick up your travel costs. A second speaker may attend at 50% off conference tuition.
  • We welcome new speakers. We will provide you a speaking coach and art department resources for building your slide deck.
