 ApacheCon Celebrates the ASF's 10th Anniversary in Oakland, California,
 2-6 November 2009

 Call for Papers Opens for ApacheCon US 2009

 The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) invites submissions to its official
 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 initiatives.
 Offering unparalleled educational opportunities, ApacheCon's presentations,
 hands-on trainings, and sessions address key technology, development,
 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 conference
 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 community,
 ApacheCon provides an influential platform for dialogue between Open Source
 developers and users, traversing a wide range of ideas, expertise, and
 personalities.

 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 completion
 will be distributed to those who fulfill all the training requirements.

 Topics appropriate for submission are manifold, and may include but are not
 restricted to: Apache HTTP server (installation, configuration, migration,
 and more); ASF-wide projects (including Lucene, Hadoop, Jackrabbit, and
 Maven); Scripting languages and dynamic content (such as Java, Perl, Python,
 Ruby, XSL, and PHP); Security and e-commerce (performance tuning, load
 balancing and high availability); New technologies (including broader
 initiatives such as Web Services and Web 2.0); ASF-Incubated projects (such
 as Sling, UIMA, and Shindig); and Business/Community issues (Open Source
 driven business models, open development, enterprise adoption, and more).

 Pre-Conference Trainings/Workshops

 Held on the first two days of the conference (2-3 November 2009), ApacheCon
 trainings are available at a registration fee beyond the regular conference
 fee. Proposals may be submitted for half-day (3 hours), full-day (6 hours),
 or two-day (12 hours) training sessions. These proposed tutorials should be
 aimed at providing in-depth, hands-on development experience or related
 continuing education. Training submissions are welcome at beginner,
 intermediate, and expert levels.

 General Sessions include presentations on practical development
 applications, insight into high-interest projects, best practices and key
 advances, overcoming implementation challenges, and industry innovations.
 Especially welcome are submissions that extend participants' understanding
 the role of ASF projects and their influence on the Open Source community at
 large. General Sessions are scheduled for 50 minutes and are accessible to
 all conference delegates.

 Case Study/Industry Profile

 Practitioners are invited to submit presentations that focus on how
 implementing particular ASF technologies led to improved products/solutions,
 service offerings, changes in work practices, among other successes.
 Proposals that highlight overcoming interesting challenges in application
 design and developing innovative frameworks using multiple ASF projects are
 particularly encouraged. NOTE: Marketing-oriented submissions aimed at
 promoting specific organizations or products will not be accepted.

 Invited Keynotes/Panels/Speakers

 Each conference the ApacheCon Planning team invites select presenters
 dealing with engaging, dialectical, and challenging subjects to present in
 keynote and/or panel formats. Topics include cutting-edge technology
 development, industry leadership, hot or emerging trends, opinions on
 controversial issues, insight on technology paradigms, and contrasting
 viewpoints in complementary professional areas. Those interested in
 suggesting a candidate for an invited speaker opportunity should submit a
 brief proposal with the speaker's name, affiliation, background/bio,
 overview of topics of interest, and contact information.

 Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions and Fast Feather Track talks are selected
 by separate processes, nearer to the beginning of the conference.

 Proposals are now being accepted at http://us.apachecon.com/c/acus2009/cfp/
 and can be revised at anytime until the submissions closing deadline of 28
 February 2009.

 In addition, sponsorship opportunities for both ApacheCon EU 2009/Amsterdam
 and ApacheCon US 2009/Oakland are available. Please contact Delia Frees at
 delia@apachecon.com for further information.

 ApacheCon US 2009 is co-produced by the Apache Software Foundation and Stone
 Circle Productions. The ApacheCon Planning team comprises ASF Members from
 all over the world working on a wholly-volunteer basis. For more
