The Call for Proposals has just opened for the
7th Annual O'Reilly Open Source Convention
http://conferences.oreillynet.com/os2005/

OSCON is headed back to friendly, economical Portland, Oregon during the
week of August 1-5, 2005. If you've ever wanted to join the OSCON
speaker
firmament, now's your chance to submit a proposal (or two) by February
13,
2005.

Complete details are available on the OSCON web site, but we're
particularly interested in exploring how software development is moving
to
another level, and how developers and businesses are adjusting to new
business models and architectures. We're looking for sessions,
tutorials,
and workshops proposals that appeal to developers, systems and network
administrators, and their managers in the following areas:

- All aspects of building applications, services, and systems that use
the
new capabilities of the open source platform
- Burning issues for Java, Mozilla, web apps, and beyond
- The commoditization of software: who and/or what can show us the
money?
- Network-enabled collaboration
- Software customizability, including software as a service
- Law, licensing, politics, and how best to navigate other troubled
waters

Specific topics and tracks at OSCON 2005 include: Linux and other open
source operating systems, Java, PHP, Python, Perl, Databases (including
MySQL and PostgreSQL), Apache, XML, Applications, Ruby, and Security.

Attendees have a wide range of experience, so be sure to target a
particular level of experience: beginner, intermediate, advanced. Talks
and tutorials should be technical; strictly no marketing presentations.
Session presentations are 45 or 90 minutes long, and tutorials are
either
a half-day (3 hours) or a full day (6 hours).

Feel free to spread the word about the Call for Proposals to your
friends,
family, colleagues, and compatriots. We want everyone to submit, from
American women hacking artificial life into the Linux kernel to Belgian
men building a better mousetrap from PHP and recycled military hardware.
We mean everyone!

Even if you don't want to participate as a speaker, send us your
suggestions--topics you'd like to see covered, groups we should bring
into
the OSCON fold, extra-curricular activities we should organize--to
os********@oreilly.com .

This year, we're moving to the wide open spaces of the Oregon Convention
Center. We've arranged for the nearby Doubletree Hotel to be our
headquarters hotel--it's a short, free Max light rail ride (or a lovely
walk) from the Convention Center.

Registration opens in April 2005; hotel information will be available
shortly.

Deadline to submit a proposal is Midnight (PST), February 13.

For all the conference details, go to:

Would your company like to make a big impression on the open source
community? If so, consider exhibiting or becoming a sponsor. Contact

See you Portland next summer,
