Never has free and open source technology been so important to the computing
industry. It's rocking a lot of boats and, as our initial list of topics
illustrates, is finding its way into unexpected places. Let's support and
expand that trend! For both conventions, we're looking for sessions and
tutorials on platforms and applications around:

- Multimedia including voice (VoIP) and video

- AI including spam-busting, classification, clustering, and data mining

- Collaboration including email, calendars, RSS, OPML, mashups, IM,
presence, and session initialization

- Project best practices including governance, starting a project, and
managing communities

- Microsoft Windows-based open source projects including .NET, Mono, and
regular C/C++/Visual Basic Windows apps

- Enterprise Java techniques including integration, testing, and scalable
deployment solutions

- Linux kernel skills for sysadmins including virtualization, tuning, and
device drivers

- Device hacking including iPods, Nintendo, PSP, XBox 360, and beyond

- Design including CSS, GUI, and user experience (XP)

- Entrepreneurial topics including management for techies, how to go into
business for yourself, and business models that work

- Security including hardening, hacking, root kits (Sony and otherwise), and
intrusion detection/cleanup

- Fun subjects with no immediate commercial application including retro
computing, games, and BitTorrent

EuroOSCON co-chairs Nat Torkington and Nikolaj Nyholm would also like to
consider proposals for EuroOSCON that focus on the specific needs of the
European FLOSS community, particularly policy and government roles. We
received some excellent feedback after last year's EuroOSCON that will help
us build an even more focused, relevant program addressing issues critical
to the professional open source community this year.

OSCON and EuroOSCON are where coders, sys admins, entrepreneurs, and
business people working in free and open source software gather to share
ideas, discover code, find solutions, and connect face to face. Even if
you're not interested in participating as a speaker, we hope you'll come be
a part of the conversation.

If you weren't at OSCON or EuroOSCON in 2005, check out the great time that
was had by all:

Hope to see you at one--or both--conventions,

The O'Reilly Conference Team
