Call for speakers

June 8—9th, 2018 in St. Petersburg, Russia. We speak English and have a code of conduct. Topics: HTML, CSS, JavaScript, etc. We help to prepare talks and cover travel and accommodation. CFS is closed now.


It’s a two-day, single track, English-speaking front-end conference in St. Petersburg, Russia on June 8–9th, 2018. The very first Russian conference fully dedicated to visual front-end technologies.

In case you don’t speak Russian, it’s the first time when you’re truly welcome: English is our main language for talks, discussions, and all issues. If you speak Russian, this is your chance to participate in a real European conference without leaving the country. Why English? We’re trying to unite Russian and worldwide community.

And all this in the most beautiful and the most European city in Russia during the famous white nights season.

Who we are

We are developers and members of Russian front-end communities organizing conferences and local meetups since 2007. We know what makes a good conference and ready to repeat our last year’s success. But we can’t do it without you, the great speakers. Don’t hesitate, join us on stage!


  • Styling: from vanilla CSS to CSS-in-JS alternatives.
  • Performance: from lazy loading to performance bugets.
  • Graphics: from SVG to Canvas, WebGL or even GIF.
  • Typography: from fonts loading to kerning nuances.
  • Accessibility: from contrast and readability to ARIA.
  • JavaScript: from good old progressive enhancement to the SPA hotness.
  • Semantics: from HTML to Schema.
  • Tooling: from pre-processors and assets packaging to style guides.
  • Methodology: from BEM to Atomic CSS.
  • Other: standards, education, experiments, open source, fun, etc.

Yes, you got it right: we’re not just a CSS conference, even though the name suggests. We’d like to discuss the whole range of front-end technologies for building interfaces for the Web.

You’re welcome to submit multiple talks or even raw ideas.


To have more chances to get your talk accepted, note the following rules:

We’re not limiting your creativity, but helping to deliver your message in the best way possible.

We can help

Have an idea or unique experience but not sure how to turn it into a talk? Don’t worry, we’ve helped many speakers before to tell good stories.


Once your talk or idea is submitted you’ll get a confirmation. Then, within a week we’ll get back to you. In most cases we don’t just decline a submission, but rather schedule a quick call to figure out the details. Once everything is clear we’ll give you the final decision.

What you get

If your proposal is selected, here’s what you’ll get:

If your employer can cover your travel and hotel, we’ll be happy to list them as a sponsor. The money we save will be invested into making this conference even better.

Code of conduct

Our code of conduct aims to create a safe and welcoming space for our community members, and to protect every attendee, staff member and speaker from harassment. Thus we need you to read, understand, and comply with our code of conduct.
