> The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) invites submissions to its official
> user and developer conference, taking place 2-6 November 2009 at the
> 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
> 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
> ideas amongst ASF Members, committers, innovators, developers, vendors,
> 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
> 10th anniversary of the Apache Software Foundation. Comprising some of
> most active and recognized developers in the Open Source community,
> ApacheCon provides an influential platform for dialogue between Open
> developers and users, traversing a wide range of ideas, expertise, and
> personalities.
> ApacheCon welcomes submissions across many fields, geographic locations,
> areas of development. The breadth of the Apache community lends itself to
> conference content that is somewhat loosely-structured, with common
> of interest addressing groundbreaking technologies and emerging trends,
> practices (from development to deployment), case studies and lessons
> (tips, tools, and tricks). In addition, ApacheCon will continue to offer
> 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
> restricted to: Apache HTTP server (installation, configuration,
> and more); ASF-wide projects (including Lucene, Hadoop, Jackrabbit, and
> Maven); Scripting languages and dynamic content (such as Java, Perl,
> 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
> as Sling, UIMA, and Shindig); and Business/Community issues (Open Source
> driven business models, open development, enterprise adoption, and more).
