Be Heard at OSCON 2007 -- Submit Your Proposal to Lead Sessions and
Tutorials by February 5!

The O'Reilly Open Source Convention
July 23-27, 2007
Portland, Oregon

More than 2500 open source developers, gurus, experts and users will
gather, eager to network, learn, and share the latest knowledge on open
source software. We think of this group as "the best of the best," and
 we invite you to contribute to the more than 400 sessions and 40
 tutorials designed to build inspiration and know-how. Submit your
 proposals at:

Share your favorite techniques, your proven successes, and newly
 developed technology in tracks for Linux, PHP, Perl, Python, Ruby,
 Java, Databases, Desktop Applications, Web Applications (client-side
 and server-side), Windows, Administration, Security, and Emerging

No topic (other than closed source software) is off-limits, so send us
your best ideas. Among the hot topics we want to hear about are:
- Tools for the administration and deployment of large server farms
- Parallelization, grid, and multicore technologies
- Virtualization
- Ajax, Javascript, standards-based design, and other client-side web
- Seaside, Rails, Django, and other interesting server-side technology
- Ubuntu as an emergent usable Linux distro and contender for Red Hat
 and Sun's client and server markets
- Java as open source
- AI, machine learning, and other ways of making software smarter than
 the people using it
- User experience and usability engineering lessons for web and desktop
- The spread of open source into law, culture, data, and services, and
 the accompanying issues and lessons

For full details and guidelines on submitting your proposal, go to
http://conferences.oreillynet.com/os2007/. If you know someone who
 would be a good speaker, please pass this email on.

Whether as a speaker or as an attendee, you'll want to participate in
 this meeting of the best minds in the business, which will also
 include the O'Reilly Radar Executive Briefing. Be sure to save the
 dates -- July 23-27. Registration will open in early April.

We hope to see you in Portland in July!
