Open Source Days 2012: Call for Speakers

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
conference.

The conference itself will take place the 2nd and 3rd of March in Copenhagen,
Denmark 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
factors.

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.

Sponsorships
------------

Sponsorships can be in the range of DKK 10000 and up. Please write to
sponsor2012@opensourcedays.org if you are interested in becoming a conference
sponsor.

Your sponsorship could, for example, be used for:

* Provide a conference T-shirt.
* Provide lunch for the participants.
* Provide keyhangers.
* Provide a conference bag.
* Provide a conference beer event.

Exhibition Booth
----------------

If you are interested in an exhibition booth, you can also contact us at the
sponsor2012@opensourcedays.org.

Hackerspaces and Community Booths
---------------------------------

More information about these will follow once we get closer to the conference.

Contact Information
-------------------

Please, send us a title, a short description and a short biography of yourself
to program2012@opensourcedays.org no later than January 21st, 2012.

You are also most welcome to contact us if you have any questions regarding the
conference itself. You can also catch most of us in the IRC channel
#opensourcedays on the EFnet IRC network.

Jeg håber at der kommer

Jeg håber at der kommer nogle gode taler så jeg kan overbevis min chef om at jeg skal afsted (igen) i år. Jeg har fået betalt de 2 sidste år samt en tur til Desktop summit.

Jeg er software ing. og

Jeg er software ing. og arbejder på Forskningscenter Foulum som en af de eneste med computer bagrund (hvis ikke den eneste). Min hovedopgave er at veligeholde Fasset (http://fasset.dk/ ) samt at assistere div. forskere og andre teknikere. Det er lykkedes mig at overbevise forskerne om at fasset skal høre under LGPL licensen (desværre kunne jeg ikke få dem overbevist om GPL pga linking problematikken).
Mange af værktøjer som jeg bruger er open source (jeg kan nævne i flæng: SVN, Eclipse MinGW, GCC, valgrind, kcachegrind og debian)
Eftersom de gerne vil beholde mig og min løn ikke er så høj i forhold til software folk ude i det private for jeg lov at tage afsted til den slag arrangementer.

Jeg er overbevist om at vi mangler folk men jeg tvivler på at vi kan finde penge til at ansætte en til inden for IT. Så hvis du vil arbejde herude er den nemeste vej nok Ph.D vejen eller Post Doc (eller komme med egne midler)
