        ApacheCon Celebrates the ASF's 10th Anniversary in Oakland,
        2-6 November 2009
        Call for Papers Opens for ApacheCon US 2009
        The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) invites submissions to its
        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
        Offering unparalleled educational opportunities, ApacheCon's
        hands-on trainings, and sessions address key technology,
        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
        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
        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
        will be distributed to those who fulfill all the training
        Topics appropriate for submission are manifold, and may include

        and more); ASF-wide projects (including Lucene, Hadoop,

        Perl, Python,
        Ruby, XSL, and PHP); Security and e-commerce (performance

        balancing and high availability); New technologies (including
        initiatives such as Web Services and Web 2.0); ASF-Incubated
        projects (such
        as Sling, UIMA, and Shindig); and Business/Community issues
