This June, the Oracle user community will gather for Ascend 2022.

Ascend will bring together two of Oracle’s largest, most vibrant user groups (OATUG and OHUG) for another event experience that offers high-value, unique opportunities for those who participate in-person while also making key and core aspects of the event available to those only able to join online.

The In-Person Attendee Experience

Those participating in person will enjoy fresh air and luxury, Las Vegas-style at The Aria, Las Vegas.

Indoors, we’ll apply public safety protocols while facilitating the face-to-face interaction that our community is craving. The tradeshow floor will be streamlined for socially distanced but impactful interactions. We’ll have spacious seating in our breakout rooms with additional mobile view-it-anywhere options to accommodate overflow and attendee preferences.

In-Person Exclusive: We’ll offer facilitated small group discussions on a variety of topics designed for more in-depth dialogue — a level of engagement only available in person.

The Online Attendee Experience

Our online-only participants will have access to live-streamed and recorded sessions. Our event app will allow them to connect with sponsors, exhibitors, speakers and attendees for networking, Q&A sessions, and virtual meet ups.

For Our Global Audience: We’ll host an international experience that brings live content worldwide for our global online audience as part of our event kick-off.

The true value of Ascend is great content — case studies, lessons learned, and proven practices.

Not sure you’ll be able to join us in person? While we will give priority to in-person presenters, there will be a few opportunities to present virtually during Ascend or at other online events. Please submit your presentation proposal even if you are unsure if you’ll be able to travel.

Together, we can help each other succeed. Do you have personal experience with:

  • Oracle E-Business Suite
  • Cloud ERP
  • Cloud EPM
  • Technology
  • Database
  • Analytics and BI
  • Cloud HCM
  • Peoplesoft HCM
  • EBS HCM
  • Taleo
  • Learn
  • Project management, team building and other topics that support professional development

Presenters Should:

  • Have personal experience with the subject matter as an Oracle Applications User or incorporate the perspective and first-hand experience of a User into the presentation.
  • Commit to actively participating in the event before, during, and after Ascend 2022 to engage with fellow presenters and registrants, answer questions, and share knowledge, both face-to-face and virtually.
  • Commit to sharing and promoting Ascend 2022 within their networks.

Guidelines

We welcome all great ideas! Applicants may submit an unlimited number of presentation proposals during the call for presentations. However, to preserve a balanced perspective and eliminate bias in our educational agenda, we do have some limitations on the number of presentations that will ultimately be selected:

  • Up to two presentations will be selected per presenter conference wide.
  • A panel is not included in these limitations; you may participate in as many panels as you’d like.
  • Please see the rules and guidelines for how many presentations can be accepted:
    • Most presenters must be able to travel to Ascend 2022 in Las Vegas, June 12-15. We may have some sessions that are presented virtually.
    • Priority is given to OATUG and OHUG members, as members are the heart of our year-round community. You can check with This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to make sure your employer is a current member. You must maintain membership through June 2022.
    • If your organization is not currently a User or Associate Member of OATUG or OHUG member, your organization will be restricted to only one selected presentation for Ascend 2022.
    • Organizations that are OATUG or OHUG user members or associate members exhibiting/sponsoring at Ascend 2022 may have up to three presentations selected for the conference. You must maintain membership through June 2022 to maintain eligibility for more than one presentation.
    • Organizations that are OATUG or OHUG associate members but NOT exhibiting/sponsoring at Ascend 2022 will be restricted to only one accepted presentation selected for the conference.
    • An OATUG Individual Member (whether User or Associate) may have only one presentation selected. If an Individual Member is an employee of a non-member organization, the organization will be subject to the limit of one selected presentation for Ascend 2022. You must maintain membership through June 2022.
  • Education rooms are a “marketing-free zone.” Sales pitches, marketing materials, signage, and product demos are not permitted. Ascend 2022 offers Vendor Awareness Sessions for this purpose.

Presentation Submission Deadline

To qualify for discounted conference registration, the PowerPoint presentation for each selected session must be submitted no later than May 12, 2022. We encourage speakers to add detailed notes within PowerPoint#8217;s speaker view so that those viewing the file later will be able to discern your presentation#8217;s important points without listening to the session recording. This will maximize the reach and impact of your presentation.
