Call for Abstracts: ASUG Annual Conference 2019 #ASUG2019 #SAPPHIRENOW



Yes, it is that time…call for presentations is open. This link has all the details. Deadline is December 1, 2018

ASUG Annual Conference is co-located with SAP’s SAPPHIRENOW event, which is one of SAP’s largest events around the world. The event is packed with excitement. This year the dates are May 7-9, 2019 in Orlando

Where to start?

Go to this link which has all the details. Download the session proposal guide.

When you enter your e-mail, you will need to create a new account with CVENT. This is the new abstract tool that ASUG is using this year.

Why Should I Submit?

If your abstract is accepted, you receive complimentary registration, you get the opportunity to share your knowledge and showcase yourself and your company. I’ve also found when I presented that I learn far more than the audience. It’s the rehearsal, preparation, and the process.

What are some tips to submit?

Some tips for your abstract:

ASUG suggests “Customers, share best practices and insights from your recent projects. Partners and SAP, your session is twice as likely to be selected if a customer is involved.”

I wrote some previous tips here. Note that this year presentation sessions are limited to 40 minute now.

I would add the tip to “submit early” and “submit often”. Often abstracts are submitted at the last minute, and they may end up in the wrong track, and the committee does not have time to catch.

Please also note the emphasis this year, as always, is on customer stories. If you are an SAP employee or a partner, I would encourage you to submit with a customer.

Spelling counts! Also something from Jennie Moreau – “cut the fluff” and “hit and quit it” in your abstract.

For BI, the track name is called “Business Intelligence and Analytics”

Other tips, per ASUG:

Abstract Title

  • Limited to 75 characters, including spaces
  • Make it Interesting: this is the first thing attendees will see – entice them to read further
  • Best Practice: if presenting a customer story, advertise the customer name by including it in the title

Session Description (Abstract)

  • Keep it Concise: abstracts are limited to 300 characters, including spaces
  • Write to Appeal to the Audience: if selected, this abstract will be displayed in the session catalog and may be used in promotional materials for the event
  • Longer and more detailed information can be provided in the “agenda overview” field
