As always, we thank Doorkeeper for sponsoring event registration system!

How to vote.

Participants who bought a ticket, sponsor companies and ScalaMatsuri staffs are eligible for voting. This article covers how participants can vote. Reception numberss for voting will be provided with Sponsors and ScalaMatsuri staff separately.

1.) Confirm your reception number.

Confirm your e-mail address that you used to buy the ticket, and the reception number in the e-mail you have received from DoorKeeper.

Doorkeeper reception number

The email you have received from Doorkeeper contains the QR code with your reception number (your 6 digits number below the QR code). You will be asked to enter the reception number when you sign in. We will verify this code later to match up with your Google, Twitter, or Github account that you use to sign in.

2.) Sign-in on proposal list page.

From the top right of the proposal list page, press the “Sign-in” button and sign in using your Google, Twitter, or GitHub account. (This will pop up an Authorize application dialog)

How to SignIn.

When you sign in, please enter the DoorKeeper reception number. This is it for the preparation.

3.) Ranked voting.

You can vote by clicking on the ☆ icon. Since there are many sessions, you can first pin some of the candidates first using the pushpin icon.

Select the sessions you would like to see. The number of votes per person is limited to 10. The remaining votes will be displayed at the top of the proposal list page. There are toggles to display only the voted and/or pinned sessions.

How to vote or pin proposals

In this year, we introduce ranked voting so that you can choose and place in an order up to five proposals. Your order will also be considered to select proposals. Since ranked voting is tolerant for vote splitting so that we could reduce the number of votes per person and make that easier.

You can drag & drop and put in an order proposals as shown below.

How to put in an order proposals.

The voting will close on February 26th 23:59 AoE(Anywhere on Earth). As long as the voting opens, you can change which proposals you vote, or which order you place in. Any votes afterwards will be invalid, so please be sure to vote early.

Timetable announcement.

Timetable will be public in March, while we send the results to each candidates who submitted their proposals in early March.

Timetable will be determined by not only voting results but social impact and a board of program committee.

We'd recommend spreading your favorite proposals in SNS as well as voting so that those sessions might get more chances to be accepted.

Q.How will the voting result be announced?
