The O’Reilly OSCON Data conference is the first of its kind: bringing together open source culture and data hackers to cover data management at a very practical level. From disks and databases through to big data and analytics, OSCON Data will have instruction and inspiration from the people who actually do the work.
OSCON Data will take place July 25-27, 2011, in Portland, Oregon. We’ll be co-located with OSCON itself.
Proposals should include as much detail about the topic and format for the presentation as possible. Vague and overly broad proposals don’t showcase your skills and knowledge, and our volunteer reviewers aren’t mind readers. The more you can tell us, the more likely the proposal will be selected.
Proposals that seem like a “vendor pitch” will not be considered. The purpose of OSCON Data is to enlighten, not to sell.
We invite you to submit a proposal to lead conference sessions or workshops at OSCON Data 2011.
Limited speaking opportunities are also available through conference sponsorship. Contact Sharon Cordesse at (707) 827-7065 or email@example.com for more information.
We’ll be using the data-related proposals we received for OSCON as we
consider the sessions to include in OSCON Data. If you have any questions, please
contact our speaker manager Shirley Bailes.
OSCON Data and Strata complement
each other: where OSCON Data is intensely practical and focused on systems architecture, software and hardware, Strata takes a broader application and business-centric view of making data work.
Present something relevant. One of your challenges as a proposer is to demonstrate that you understand that attendees might need an extra reason to pay attention to something that they might otherwise think of as "settled"
