VMworld 2016 Public Session Voting Now Open

VMworld Registration 

Can you believe it?  Public voting for VMworld session submissions is now open!  And that further signifies that VMworld 2016 is coming up fast. 

The VMworld session catalog for both the US and Barcelona is now available for voting.  What does that mean?  You have the opportunity to influence some of the content that will be presented for both events.

Vote for your favorite session proposals to help decide what content makes it into the final agenda.  Remember: Session voting ends on May 24 at 11:59 pm PDT, so if you want your opinions heard be sure to select your favorites soon! 

VMware has opened up voting to everyone -- although you will be required to login with your account to participate.  If you don't have a login, you can create one for free.

If you know of a specific session or track you want to vote for, go to the VMworld home page and login.  Select the Learning tab and select the Vote on Public Sessions link.  Select a Track, Sub-track or do a Keyword Search (Session ID, title, speaker, etc.) to find specific session(s) in the Content Catalog.  To cast your vote, click on the like button.  Easy!  Rinse, wash and repeat for any other sessions for which you want to vote.

According to VMware, public voting is just one part of the scoring process that includes a content committee and sponsor voting.  Not only does your vote impact internal committee decisions, but the VMworld 2016 program reserves space on the agenda (up to 5%) for "Customer Choice" Sessions.  Sessions with the most public votes will be guaranteed a spot on the agenda. 

You can vote on as many sessions as you want, but keep in mind there are currently 1,500+ submissions to go through that came in via VMware's Call for Papers.  It will help if you search and filter for topics that might interest you.  To keep things honest, you can only cast one vote for each session.

And if you want to help choose the agenda... Get out there and vote!
