Well, it's a summit for all contributors to the Qt project - including people that 
contribute to Qbs.

I'm not sure about the exact year, but the session I remember with Jake got
quite some interest indeed.

Anyhow, for the World Summit there's a formal schedule, and the call for papers
Is long gone, so if anything you (or anyone who likes to promote Qbs) can submit
a proposal only next year.

Depends on how you define 'project' 😊 Many of the qt-labs modules are not driven by the Qt Company, and there are also Qt Creator plugins and Qt addons that weren't created by (employees of) The Qt Company.
