How can I teach a class or workshop at InterDrone 2017?

See the Call for Speakers.

Are there going to be videos of the presentations/classes available after the conference?

No, videos will not be available, and it is not permissible to videotape the sessions. We do not have the permission of the presenters to video their classes and workshops, and in some cases they are very explicit about not giving us video rights.

Many of these presenters offer training classes, and wouldn't want to take a chance that their classes are "floating around" the Internet. They also often share candid comments about what's going on the industry, and might speak differently (and less openly) if their sessions were being recorded and distributed. The same is true of participants in the sessions. We want everyone to feel comfortable speaking openly.
