Just sending a heads-up that we’re taking session ideas for MERL Tech London, coming up March 20-21, 2018!
Please submit a session idea, register to attend, or reserve a demo table to discuss all this and more! You’ll have the chance to meet, learn from, debate with 150-200 of your MERL Tech peers and to see live demos of new tools and approaches to MERL.
Submit Your Session Ideas!
Like previous conferences, MERL Tech London will be a highly participatory, community-driven event and we’re actively seeking practitioners in monitoring, evaluation, research, learning, data science and technology to facilitate every session.
We are particularly interested in:
- Case studies: Sharing end-to-end experiences/learning from a MERL Tech process
- MERL Tech 101: How-to use a MERL Tech tool or approach
- Methods & Frameworks: Sharing/developing/discussing methods and frameworks for MERL Tech
- Data: Big, large, small, quant, qual, real-time, online-offline, approaches, quality, etc.
- Innovations: Brand new, untested technologies or approaches and their application to MERL(Tech)
- Debates: Lively discussions, big picture conundrums, thorny questions, contentious topics related to MERL Tech
- Management: People, organizations, partners, capacity strengthening, adaptive management, change processes related to MERL Tech
- Evaluating MERL Tech: comparisons or learnings about MERL Tech tools/approaches and technology in development processes
- Failures: What hasn’t worked and why, and what can be learned from this?
- Demo Tables: to share MERL Tech approaches, tools, and technologies
- Other topics we may have missed!
Submission Deadline: Friday, November 10, 2017.
Session leads receive priority for the available seats at MERL Tech and a discounted registration fee. You will hear back from us in early December and, if selected, you will be asked to submit an updated and final session title, summary and outline by Friday, January 19th, 2018.
