Subject Cocoon GetTogether 2004 Call for Proposals
Date Mon, 16 Aug 2004 09:50:57 GMT
Dear all,

For the third year in a row, the Cocoon GetTogether is back. Same place 
(Ghent - Belgium) and almost same time (targeting October 11th-12th).

In the next few weeks we will spread all the details about the 
conference plan, logistics, costs and the like. For now, it's our 
pleasure to officially open the Call For Proposals phase. We are 
looking for you to come on stage and talk about all things Cocoon. 
People who want to present during the GetTogether are kindly requested 
to send in a presentation proposal. Presentation topics will be 
screened for cluefulness, in the sense that we don't want any 
commercial presentations. Introductory, tutorial-like stuff into new or 
advanced topics are much appreciated though. Please send in your 
presentation proposal to gt2004-speaking at orixo.com - see below for a 
template to help you in filling out a proposal.

GUIDELINES FOR SUBMITTING A PROPOSAL

Do not include proprietary or confidential material in your proposals. 
We will assume that you do not consider any material included in the 
proposals to be confidential. All conference presentations are 
vendor-agnostic and should focus on technology. Your proposal should 
contain the following information:

1. Proposed title for the talk/session/debate.
2. Brief outline or abstract of the talk/session/debate * Please be as 
concise as possible.
    * Please write in third-person context.
    * Please list any prerequisite sessions or knowledge you feel is 
essential.
    * Indicate, if applicable, if this is a beginning or advanced talk.
3. For all proposed speakers, include: speaker name, title, company, 
address, email, phone number, fax and website.
4. Biography for the proposed speaker(s) showing relevant experience 
and qualification to speak on the proposed subject matter (not to 
exceed 250 words).
5. Primary contact/founder name, title, company, address, email and 
phone number.

DEADLINE for proposal : September 7th, 2004
