Call for Papers: Open Source Developers’ Conference 2009 - Brisbane

This year the fabulous OSDC conference is 25-27 November 2009 and returning to Brisbane (Bardon Centre, Mt.Cootha which is a great venue tucked into a rainforest setting). Stephen Thorne leads the organisation team for this event.

The call for papers is now open, until June 30th. For full details, see OSDC 2009 call for papers.

We’ll definitely be there, particularly since it’s very close to Arjen’s house. And perhaps we’ll get some talks accepted on MySQL and other topics. We’ll definitely be submitting some proposals!

OSDC update: 2007 program committee deliberations

Andrae and his gang will take some time, with over 100 submissions to consider, but the CfP is now definitely closed and the program committee is busy doing its thing. If you missed out on making a submission, you can of course still try to beg Andrae, but don't push your luck as things do need to move along...

Browsing through the list of proposals, I'm very pleased with the number we received, and also impressed with the quality of the speakers and diverse range of topics. Most are from within Australia, but there are also entries from around the Asia-Pacific, and even as far as Austria and the USA. This should make for a fine program.
