Last year at Grace Hopper, a Women in Computing Conference, I noticed
that there were no booths for free and open source software projects. Is
anybody interested in partnering up to sponsor a booth? (We can and
should ask for a nonprofit discount but I think even manning a booth for
the whole conference might be something that is easier shared.)

The audience is 90-95% women and probably 50% university students. Most
companies used their booths to recruit job applicants.

(I also encourage all of you to submit talks on free and open source
software project topics!)

The Call for Participation is now open for the 2010 Grace Hopper
Celebration of Women in Computing at

Key Deadlines:

   *   The deadline to submit proposals is March 16, 2010.
   *   Notifications on the submission status will be sent out by May 18,

Recommendations to anyone who wants to participate:

   1.  Your subject should not be something specific to your organization.
   2.  If you have a panel - it needs to span across organizations - not
5 people from the same company discussing an issue in their company.
Combining academics and industry or interdisciplinary discussions are great.
   3.  We are encouraging submissions that promote diversity and
International participation.
   4.  A submission in line with the theme of the conference
"Collaborating Across Boundaries" would be ideal.
