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.

Travel support applications for the 13th edition of RightsCon (February 24-27, 2025) are now open! The deadline to apply for travel support is September 2, 2024 at 23:59 Pacific Standard Time. Decisions will be communicated to applicants by the end of September 2024.


Nominations for the Speaker & Facilitator List are also open! If you have a thematic or regional perspective to contribute to our RightsCon 2025 program, nominate yourself as a speaker or facilitator before August 16th, 2024 at 23:59 Pacific Standard Time. To learn more about our approach and who chooses speakers or facilitators, please read our blog post.


If you've submitted a session through the RightsCon 2025 Call for Proposals, you can expect to receive a notification by late August 2024.
