Reversim Summit 2017

Call for papers is now closed


About Reversim Summit

Reversim summit is our intention to create a conference for developers by developers. Like in the podcast, we bring you the content we are interested in, and we hope you will be too.

This is the fifth(!) Reversim Summit. The summits of 2013 and 2014 (TLV Campus), 2015 (Technion) and 2016 (Weizmann Institute of Science) also featured community content. Watch previous years' sessions to get the general feel of the Revesim Summit spirit.

About Reversim Podcast

Reversim (רברס עם פלטפורמה) is a Hebrew podcast by Ori Lahav and Ran Tavory which brings together software developers and product, with over 300 recorded episodes and a few thousands listners.


We’re interested in everything including software development, software product development, UX, startups, mobile, web, devops, data processing, scaling, software company culture, tooling and more. There is no predefined list of topics, if you’d like to speak about something interesting, we want it!

We do not set out with a predefined list of tracks. We would like to leave the topics (tracks) open and only after accepting the submissions we will split the sessions into tracks, but we shall not rule out a single good session just b/c it's not a natural fit to any of the predefined list, so don't worry so much about categorizing your submissions.

Generally speaking - we are not looking for “intro to something software” or “something software 101”. We’re looking for something of greater depth. However, we are open to session “intro to something that isn’t software”, as long is this something is of general interest, for example “intro to moonwalking and breakdance”

Sponsorship plan

We feature a sponsorship plan for companies relevant to the conference attendees. The plan includes:

Featured job description
  • A featured job description near your company name at the sponsors page in our site, with a link to your site.
  • A link to your careers / jobs page from the sponsors page in our site.
A Thank-you before the keynote sessions

We will thank all sponsors before the daily keynote session.

  • A logo in the home page of the Reversim conference site.
  • A section in the sponsors page in the Reversim conference site, with a link to the company’s home page.

All major conference sessions are video-recorded and will be freely available on the web. Sponsors logos will appear in the cover page appearing before each session.


Tickets are free, but they tend to vanish quickly. We provide each sponsor with 4 unnamed reservations that can be given to last-minute attendees.

Becoming a sponsor

The sponsorship plan cost is 15,000 NIS + V.A.T.

We do encourage sponsors to submit sessions. In fact, sessions by sponsors have been some of the best we had in previous summits. However, these sessions go through our independent submission and moderation process.

To become a sponsor, please contact Shlomi Hassan.


June 20
Call for Papers Period Begins

We've decided that we will not define a list of tracks upfront, rather open up the submission to any topic. Later on we will choose the best sessions and sort them by topic relevance, so that attendees would be able to focus on tracks and room.

This means that we want submission on any topic that may interest developers, product folks, UX etc. Topics might include startups, mobile, web, devops, data processing, scaling, programming languages, api design, data science, gaming, computer vision and more... This is not a closed list, it's just to give ideas, if your topic doesn't seem to fit here and is of general interest, we want it!

Early August
Review Starts (End of Public Voting)

We have a wonderful group of moderators that would help you refine your submission and eventually select the proposed sessions. Please feel free to reach out to any of us if you have any questions.

During the selection process we take into account various aspects, including relevance, popularity, interest, originality, presenters track record, diversity etc.
