Hybrid conference
No Time to Wait has always been a conference that blends in-person and online participation. We will work to ensure safe participation for those attending in-person as well as emphasise online participation in response to the social, travel, and financial restrictions related to the pandemic.

Call for Presentations
The year's theme is "Open Isn't Enough". Simply bringing openness to our work is not enough to propogate its adoption & accessibility. Open media, open workflows & open standards require skill-sharing, advocacy, collaboration & community-building to be truly useful.
Submit your presentation proposals here. Deadline - 13 August.
