Subject Fwd: Call for Participation: Technical Talks -- ApacheCon North America 2010
Date Fri, 30 Apr 2010 06:27:50 GMT
Hi folks,

anyone interested out there? I'm pretty sure that JSPWiki and its future 
development are of general interest and having an ApacheCon presentation 
on the resume might be of your personal interest ... :-)

ApacheCon North America 2010
1-5 November 2010 -- Westin Peachtree in Atlanta

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 

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.

To submit a presentation proposal, please send an email to submissions 
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 
relevant to the topic)

4. The technical category of the intended presentation (Cassandra/NoSQL; 
Content Technologies; (Java) Enterprise Development; Felix/OSGi; 
Geronimo; Hadoop + friends/Cloud Computing; Lucene, Mahout + 
friends/Search; Tomcat; or Tuscany)

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 "Innovation"

6. The intended audience level (beginner, intermediate, advanced)

7. A 75-200 word overview of your presentation

8. A 100-200-word speaker bio that includes prior conference speaking or
