FUDCon Boston 2006 Call for Papers

I would like to start out by thanking both the community and developers who have helped make Fedora such a huge success on so many different fronts.

Riding on the success of the series of FUDCon events worldwide I am proud to announce that we will be holding FUDCon Boston 2006, taking it back to where it all began. The event will be graciously hosted by Boston University once again with sponsorship from BU Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, the BU Office of Information Technology, and this year, the BU School of Management. The date for the event is Friday April 7th, the day following the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo.

We are looking for interesting topics and presentations covering a number areas. Talks should be focused on one of the 3 main tracks.

Track 1 - User Track : Topics that deal with the user experience, desktop innovations, etc.
Track 2 - Developer Track : Topics that deal with software development in the Fedora environment.
Track 3 - Application Track : Either topics that deal with applications/uses of Fedora in other Open Source projects or topics that showcase a specific Open Source application.

To be considered for presentation, abstracts should be submitted to by no later than Thursday February 23, at 11:59pm. We welcome submission from both developers and community members alike, new and old.

After the review process, notifications will go out on Thursday March 2nd followed by a full schedule for FUDCon Boston 2006 and official announcement on Monday March 6th.
