Technical Tracks: Call For Participation
All submissions must be received by Friday, 28 May 2010 at midnight  
Pacific Time.
The official conference, trainings, and expo of The Apache Software  
Foundation (ASF) returns to Atlanta this November, with dozens of  
technical, business, and community-focused sessions at the beginner,  
intermediate, and advanced levels.

Over the past decade, the ASF has gone from strength to strength,  
developing and shepherding nearly 150 Top-Level Projects and new  
initiatives in the Apache Incubator and Labs. This year's ApacheCon  
celebrates how Apache technologies have sparked creativity, challenged  
processes, streamlined development, improved collaboration, launched  
businesses, bolstered economies, and improved lives.

We are proud of our achievements and recognize that the global Apache  
community --both developers and users-- are responsible for the  
success and popularity of our products.

The ApacheCon Planning Team are soliciting 50-minute technical  
presentations for the next conference, which will focus on the theme  
“Servers, the Cloud, and Innovation”.

We are particularly interested in highly-relevant, professionally- 
directed presentations that demonstrate specific probrlems and real- 
world solutions. Part of the technical program has already been  
planned; we welcome proposals based on the following Apache Projects  
and related technical areas:

- Cassandra/NoSQL
- Content Technologies
- (Java) Enterprise Development
- Felix/OSGi
- Geronimo
- Hadoop + friends/Cloud Computing
- Lucene, Mahout + friends/Search
- Tomcat
- Tuscany
Submissions are open to anyone with relevant expertise: ASF  
affiliation is not required to present at, attend, or otherwise  
participate in ApacheCon.

Please keep in mind that whilst we encourage submissions that the  
highlight the use of specific Apache solutions, we are unable to  
accept marketing/commercially-oriented presentations.

Other proposals, such as panels, or those longer than 50 minutes in  
duration have been considered in the past. You are welcome to submit  
an alternate presentation, however, such sessions are accepted under  
exceptional circumstances. Please be as descriptive as possible,  
including names/bios of proposed panelists and any related details.

All accepted speakers (not co-presenters) qualify for general  
conference admission and a minimum of two nights lodging at the  
conference hotel. Additional hotel nights and travel assistance are  
possible, depending on the number of presentations given and type of  
assistance needed.

AT apachecon DOT com containing the following information in plaintext  
(no attachments, please):

1. Your full name, title, and organization

2. Contact information, including your address

3. The name of your proposed session (keep your title simple and

5. The classification for each presentation (Servers, Cloud, or  
Innovation) – some presentations may have more than one theme (e.g., a  
next-generation server can be classified both as "Servers" and
