Speaker profile

Having an incomplete speaker profile may affect the decision of whether or not your proposal is accepted into the program.

All speakers must have created an X-CD user login and completed their speaker profile.

You or your co-speaker may already have an X-CD user login if you have already spoken or submitted a proposal to AIEC. In this case, please ensure you login and update your own profile. You will not have access to your co-speakers' profile if they are already in the system.

If your co-speaker does not yet have an X-CD user login, you can create one for him/her. Please ensure you have all the information ready before you submit the proposal. Once you enter their information, you will no longer have access to edit. Instead, your co-speaker will receive an email with login and password.


Download the PDF version of the speaker profile to prepare the information offline. Alternatively, get all your co-speaker to create his or her own speaker profiles directly in X-CD, so you just have to select them from the dropdown list.

Mandatory information for conference program includes:

  • salutation
  • first name
  • last name
  • organisation and/or department/faculty
  • position

  • be no longer than 200 words
  • be written in paragraph form (long paragraphs)
  • be written in the third person
  • avoid use of bulleted and numbered lists
  • avoid the curriculum vitae (CV) style


  • can be submitted and uploaded directly to the speaker profile in X-CD.
