ApacheCon Celebrates the ASF's 10th Anniversary in Oakland, California,
2-6 November 2009
Call for Papers Opens for ApacheCon US 2009
The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) invites submissions to its official
user and developer conference, taking place 2-6 November 2009 at the Oakland
Convention Center and Marriott Hotel. ApacheCon serves as a forum for
showcasing the ASF's latest projects, members, and community initiatives.
Offering unparalleled educational opportunities, ApacheCon's presentations,
hands-on trainings, and sessions address key technology, development,
business/community, and licensing issues in Open Source.
The wide range of activities offered at ApacheCon promotes the exchange of
ideas amongst ASF Members, committers, innovators, developers, vendors, and
users interested in the future of Open Source technology. The conference
program includes peer-reviewed sessions, trainings/workshops, and select
invited keynote presentations and speakers.
Conference Themes and Topics
Building on ten years of success, ApacheCon returns to the Bay Area for the
10th anniversary of the Apache Software Foundation. Comprising some of the
most active and recognized developers in the Open Source community,
ApacheCon provides an influential platform for dialogue between Open Source
developers and users, traversing a wide range of ideas, expertise, and
ApacheCon welcomes submissions across many fields, geographic locations, and
areas of development. The breadth of the Apache community lends itself to
conference content that is somewhat loosely-structured, with common themes
of interest addressing groundbreaking technologies and emerging trends, best
practices (from development to deployment), case studies and lessons learned
(tips, tools, and tricks). In addition, ApacheCon will continue to offer its
highly popular, two-day intensive trainings; certifications of completion
will be distributed to those who fulfill all the training requirements.
Topics appropriate for submission are manifold, and may include but are not
restricted to: Apache HTTP server (installation, configuration, migration,
and more); ASF-wide projects (including Lucene, Hadoop, Jackrabbit, and
Maven); Scripting languages and dynamic content (such as Java, Perl, Python,
Ruby, XSL, and PHP); Security and e-commerce (performance tuning, load
balancing and high availability); New technologies (including broader
initiatives such as Web Services and Web 2.0); ASF-Incubated projects (such
as Sling, UIMA, and Shindig); and Business/Community issues (Open Source
driven business models, open development, enterprise adoption, and more).
Submissions must include; – Session title - Speaker name - Speaker biography
- Session description - Format and duration - Audience expertise level
Full details are available online on the CFP page at [WWW]
Types of Presentations; - Trainings/Workshops - General Sessions - Case
Studies/Industry Profiles - Corporate Showcases & Demonstrations - Fast
Feather (short) sessions - Birds of a Feather discussions - Invited
Held on the first two days of the conference (2-3 November 2009), ApacheCon
trainings are available at a registration fee beyond the regular conference
fee. Proposals may be submitted for half-day (3 hours), full-day (6 hours),
or two-day (12 hours) training sessions. These proposed tutorials should be
aimed at providing in-depth, hands-on development experience or related
continuing education. Training submissions are welcome at beginner,
intermediate, and expert levels.
General Sessions include presentations on practical development
applications, insight into high-interest projects, best practices and key
advances, overcoming implementation challenges, and industry innovations.
Especially welcome are submissions that extend participants' understanding
the role of ASF projects and their influence on the Open Source community at
large. General Sessions are scheduled for 50 minutes and are accessible to
all conference delegates.
Case Study/Industry Profile
Practitioners are invited to submit presentations that focus on how
implementing particular ASF technologies led to improved products/solutions,
service offerings, changes in work practices, among other successes.
Proposals that highlight overcoming interesting challenges in application
design and developing innovative frameworks using multiple ASF projects are
particularly encouraged. NOTE: Marketing-oriented submissions aimed at
promoting specific organizations or products will not be accepted.
Each conference the ApacheCon Planning team invites select presenters
dealing with engaging, dialectical, and challenging subjects to present in
keynote and/or panel formats. Topics include cutting-edge technology
development, industry leadership, hot or emerging trends, opinions on
controversial issues, insight on technology paradigms, and contrasting
viewpoints in complementary professional areas. Those interested in
suggesting a candidate for an invited speaker opportunity should submit a
brief proposal with the speaker's name, affiliation, background/bio,
overview of topics of interest, and contact information.
Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions and Fast Feather Track talks are selected
by separate processes, nearer to the beginning of the conference.
Proposals are now being accepted at http://us.apachecon.com/c/acus2009/cfp/
and can be revised at anytime until the revised closing deadline of
14 March 2009 at 12:00 GMT.
In addition, sponsorship opportunities for both ApacheCon Europe 2009
in Amsterdam and ApacheCon US 2009 in Oakland are both available. Please
contact Delia Frees at delia at apachecon.com for further information.
ApacheCon US 2009 is co-produced by the Apache Software Foundation and Stone
