Welcome to the RightsCon proposal portal!

The portal allows you to manage your RightsCon submissions. Once you create an account, you can submit a session proposal, apply for the Community Support Fund, and more – all in one centralized location.

The Call for Proposals for the 13th edition of RightsCon (February 24-27, 2025) has been extended until June 7, 2024 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time.
