OSCON Call for Papers

The organizers behind the O'Reilly Open Source Convention (OSCON) announced a call for papers, ahead of the event scheduled for July 19-23, 2010.The convention once again returns to Portland, Oregon after a brief jaunt to San Jose, California.

Just about everything related to open source is fair game when it comes to submitting a proposal to the selection committee. "If you have winning techniques, favorite lifesavers, war stories, productivity tips, or other ideas to share, we want to hear from you. We're especially on the look-out for ways to do more with less, design and usability best practices, mobile device innovations, cloud computing, parallelization, open standards and data, open source in government, business models, and beyond," say organizers.
Potential presenters can choose to run a 3-hour tutorial, a 40-minute panel, 40-minute group discussion, or a 40-minute presentation. Planners say the proposals should focus on providing actionable information on tools people actually use, and not just a rehash of manuals or documentation. The deadline for submitting proposals is February 1, 2010, and registration opens April 1, 2010. See OSCON's Web site for more tips and hints on submitting a proposal.

More than 2,500 people are expected to attend OSCON 2010 to learn about the newest and most popular open source tools, services, and platforms in the industry. There will be hundreds of sessions to choose from on a wide variety of topics, including cloud computing, government, databases, and programming languages.
