Call for Papers
Open Source Developers' Conference 2007 - Brisbane Australia
"Success in Development & Business"

OSDC is an Australian grass-roots conference providing Open Source  
developers with an opportunity to meet, share, learn, and of course  
show-off. OSDC focuses on Open Source developers building solutions  
directly for customers and other end users, anything goes as long as  
the code or the development platform is Open Source. Last year's  
conference attracted over 180 people, 60 talks, and 6 tutorials.  
Entry for delegates is kept easy by maintaining a low registration  
fee (approx $300), which always includes the conference dinner.

This year OSDC will be held in Brisbane (Australia) from the 26th to  
the 29th of November, with an extra dedicated stream for  
presentations on Open Source business development, case studies,  
software process, and project management. The theme for this year's  
conference is "Success in Development & Business". If you are an Open  
Source maintainer, developer or user we would encourage you to submit  
a talk proposal on the open-source tools, solutions, technologies, or  
languages you are working with.

Previous years have included numerous talks on topics such as:

  - FOSS Software Development Tools, Software Process and Project  
  - Languages/Platforms: C/C++, Java, C#/Mono/OSS.Net
  - Scripting: Perl, PHP, Python, Ruby
  - Databases
  - Education
  - Web Technologies
  - Emerging Technologies and Innovation

For more details and to submit your proposal(s), see http:// 
If you have any questions or require assistance with your submission,  
please don't hesitate to ask!

We recognise the increasing importance of Open Source in providing a  
medium for collaboration between individuals, researchers, business  
and government.  In recognition of this, we offer optional peer- 
review for those members of our community who desire it.  We are  
still finalising our review board, in addition to which those  
requesting peer-review will be asked to contribute reviews for up to  
three papers.
