Welcome to the RightsCon proposal portal! 

The portal allows you to manage your RightsCon experience. Once you create an account, you can submit a session proposal, apply for community support, and more – all in one centralized location.

The 11th edition of RightsCon took place online from June 6-10, 2022. Subscribe to our newsletter for updates about our next summit, which will be hosted in San José, Costa Rica and online from Monday, June 5 to Friday, June 9, 2023.



The RightsCon proposal portal is hosted on OpenWater. We recommend that you read OpenWater’s privacy policy, and review RightsCon’s data usage policy, Code of Conduct, and participation and privacy policy.

We use the information collected from the portal to review session proposals, build the program, send updates about the summit, allocate connectivity support, and coordinate your participation in RightsCon. We collect personal data, such as country and gender, to uphold our diversity, equity, and inclusion standards in the program, and understand who is a part of our community from summit to summit. We conduct analysis on aggregated data to report publicly on community insights and program trends.

We will not use your data for purposes other than those outlined here or required by law. If you have questions about our data usage policy, or if you wish to exercise your rights to information, access, erasure, rectification, or more, contact us at legal@accessnow.org.
