Call for proposals update for ATypI Paris 2023

The response to our call for submissions for ATypI Paris was tremendous. We received around 260 proposals from all over the world, and many more from Paris locals. Our program team is hard at work trying to fit as many speakers as possible into the program. We missed our first deadline for notification, and we apologize sincerely.

First notifications began last Monday and will continue in waves. We will notify everyone of their status, whether or not their proposal is chosen.

We began posting our first speakers today (March 7). We are so excited about the program—we hope you will love it, learn from it, and be inspired by everything surrounding you at ATypI Paris: Rendez-vous.
