OpenSource World focuses on real-world solutions in real-world environments using open source, open standards and open architecture as part of an integrated IT infrastructure.

perspective are especially interesting to us.

Session Formats: In addition to standard 1 hour conference sessions, we are looking for 3 hour tutorials that provide attendees with detailed technical information on relevant topics and we are accepting proposals for keynotes.
Guidelines: Focus proposals with the idea of giving attendees the information, tools and the inspiration to accomplish their open source objectives in the enterprise. DO NOT focus your proposals on a commercial product or propose a marketing pitch, but rather open source software and technology.
