Some GREAT upcoming open-source conferences are now seeking speakers:

  • 2011 is to be held in Brisbane, Australia, January 24 – 29, 2011. This is the premier large-scale open-source event in the region, and from all reports it is always a “corker”. I particularly appreciate that they sponsor an Open Day during the conference to enable the local community to participate. CFP ends this Saturday, August 7, so get a move on!
  • Also in Oceania, the Open Source Developer’s Conference will be held this year in Melbourne, Australia, November 24-26. 2010. This is the seventh year for this intimate, vibrant gathering of Oz-oriented open-source advocates. (Note that intimate doesn’t equal small – this conference has over 250 attendees.) Check out the schedules for previous years to see some of the fantastic content that has surfaced at this conference. CFP open until August 23, so hurry!.
  • The first MeeGo conference is scheduled November 15 through November 17th in Dublin, Ireland. MeeGo was just announced as the official platform for GENIVI – a very exciting time to be associated with this great project from Intel and Nokia, now shepherded by the Linux Foundation. CFP open until September 1.
  • The Symbian Exchange and Exposition (SEE 2010) is to be held this year in Amsterdam, November 9-10. SEE is the primary developer conference for the Symbian operating system, which has been open-sourced to great fanfare (and which now runs on some very interesting hardware, including the BeagleBoard). CFP open until September 3.

UPDATE: I just found out about Open Source Developers’ Conference France, which will be held in Paris and is free. This sounds like a great place for French-speaking open source folks to gather and network.

If anyone cares to sponsor me to travel to any of these shows from North America, I’d be happy to talk to you. 🙂 Meanwhile, I’m busy preparing for LinuxCon and the Teaching Open Source Education Mini-Summit next week, can’t wait!

By the way, these and many other conferences are listed on my Open Source Conferences calendar.
