Call for Papers is out for yet another Open Source Days in Copenhagen/Denmark. The event is organized by Open Source community in Denmark.
So please read the Call for Speakers below and forward it to friends, colleagues, fellow Perl mongers and anybody who could be interested.
I am evaluating if any of my talks given to the Copenhagen Perl Mongers through the last year would make could candidates for Open Source Days 2012.
Open Source Days 2012: Call for Speakers
Open Source Days 2012 is currently planned for early March 2012 and we are
looking for gifted, entertaining and technically enlightened speakers for the
The conference itself will take place the 2nd and 3rd of March and training
will be available 1st of March.
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.
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.
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
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.
