Guidelines for becoming a speaker

GPD has specific rules to follow for preparing any materials you wish to present at any of the GPD conferences:

  • The material you present must NOT be a sales pitch
  • The presentation must NOT be brand focused
  • All papers must be non-commercial, industrial or industrial-scientific. They should present a product and its use in a technical manner that is intriguing to industry experts

We recommend:

  • The abstract, paper and presentation should have a technical and design focus
  • Use as much technical research, testing, hypothetical results and final results as possible
  • Show process design from initial selection through to completion
  • Show material in a larger context, such as with buildings, façades, design and/or implementation
