Open Source Days 2012: Call for Speakers



Open Source Days 2012: Call for Speakers
========================================

Open Source Days 2012 is currently planned for March 2012 and we are looking
for gifted, entertaining and technically enlightened speakers for the
conference.

The conference itself will take place the 10th and 11th of March in Copenhagen,
Denmark and training will be available 9th of March. The conference will take
place at Copenhagen Business School and the training will take place at a
different location in Copenhagen. Further details will be provided to training
participants.

Note: The conference has been pushed a week since the initial announcement.

This is the second and final call for speakers and it contains information that
was not present in the first email. Final dates for submitting proposals for
talks, lightning talks and training is the 27th of January and final date for
requesting a community booth is 13th of February.

If you have already submitted a proposal and have received a confirmation email
from us, no further actions will be required from you. You will be contacted
shortly after the final proposal dates.

Conference Size
===============

This year we have a location with 1231 seats in 7 lecture halls from 77 to 455
seats. Last year was significantly smaller and sold out. The previous years has
seen up to 800-900 people over the days.

Training Courses - Half or Full Day
===================================

As something new we will want to try out longer training courses - half or full
day, held on the day before the conference itself.

We are looking for both subjects and instructors.

Since we expect the course participants to pay for the training, we are willing
to pay the instructor for giving the course, provided that a sufficient number
of people sign up.

Naturally the course instructors also get free access to the conference, since
we also hope to get a normal talk out of the instructor.

Course instructors can attend the conference free of charge and to some extent
we might be able to reimburse your travel and hotel.

Normal Talks - 45 minutes
=========================

This year we will have a track with focus on the use of open source software in
newly created startups and another track with focus on green technologies.

Non-startup related talks are also of interest and we’ll try to fit them into
various related tracks.

Speakers can attend the conference free of charge and to some extent we might
be able to reimburse your travel and hotel.

Normal talks should be presented in english.

Lightning Talks - 15 minutes
============================

Talk about anything you like. Tell us about your idea for a new project, how
you made your first Qt application or something completely different. For
lightning talks, only your imagination and the timeframe are the limiting
factors.

If you have never tried doing a presentation before, but are working on
something you believe other people might find interesting, then this is a good
opportunity to start.

Lightning talk speakers can attend the conference free of charge.

Sponsorships
============

Sponsorships can be in the range of DKK 10000 and up. Please write to
sslug@sslug if you are interested in becoming a conference
sponsor.

Your sponsorship could, for example, be used for:

  - Providing a conference T-shirt.
  - Providing lunch for the participants.
  - Providing keyhangers.
  - Providing a conference bag.
  - Providing a conference beer event.
  - Exhibition Booth

If you are interested in an exhibition booth, you can also contact us at the
sslug@sslug

Hackerspaces
============

Danish hackerspaces will be contacted directly over the upcoming weeks.
Non-danish hackerspaces are welcome to contact us directly at
sslug@sslug

Community Booths
================

Our wish is that the community groups will start planning for their activities
and events for their booths immediately. Open Source Days will deliver the
infrastructure and by doing so give the user groups the best possibly platform
for strong community content at the conference.

Just like last year, we would like the user groups to submit a description of
their planned activities at their booth as well as a short description of
themselves.  Having a descriptive program for activities will greatly help us
pick the most interesting user groups for the conference audience.

Please send your request for a community booth to sslug@sslug
together with a description of your planned events no later than February 13th
2012.

Contact Information
===================

Please, send us a title, a short description and a short biography of yourself
to sslug@sslug no later than January 27th, 2012.

You are also most welcome to contact us if you have any questions regarding the
conference itself. You can also catch most of us in the IRC channel
#opensourcedays on the EFnet IRC network.

Feel free to follow us on http://twitter.com/opensourcedays or
https://facebook.com/opensourcedays to get the latest news about the
conference.
