Looks like it's time to start submissions for next year's OSCON.

July 25-29, 2011
Oregon Convention Center
Portland, Oregon 

Submit a Proposal to Speak at OSCON By February 7

For thirteen years the O'Reilly Open Source Convention has been bringing
together people from across the open source universe to learn,
collaborate, and inspire each other. OSCON provides a central place to
gain exposure to and evaluate the new projects, tools, services,
platforms, languages, software, and standards sweeping through the open
source community and the broader technology industry.

Now is your chance to be part of the program. We're looking for speakers
to lead sessions and tutorials at OSCON 2011. The Call for Participation
is open now through February 7:


Topics We're Looking For

Topics we plan to explore in the 2011 program include: 

- Doing more with less, a perpetual favorite
- Open source in smart phones and mobile networked devices
- Cloud computing, openness in distributed services
- Geek lifestyle - hacking, quantified self, inbox zero, maker culture
- Best practices for building a business around open source
- Open web, open standards, open data, open, open, open!
- Open source in democracy, politics, government, and education
- AI, machine learning, and other ways of making software smarter than the
  people using it

These topics are just to get you started. We're open to other ideas as well.

We're looking forward to seeing your session and tutorial ideas and we hope
you're already making plans to join us in Portland this July.
