Hi all

We're looking for presenters to talk at the upcoming Open Source 
Developers' Conference (4-7 November 2014, Griffith University Gold 
Coast Campus, QLD). Register on the http://2014.osdc.com.au/ site, and 
propose a presentation. You can submit as many proposals as you wish, 
and come back to edit them later, so why not get started today?

We have space for sessions, tutorials, hands-on workshops with keyboard 
or soldering iron (or both!) and yes, Miniconfs.

Speakers attend the conference for free; travel and accommodation is 
still your own gig, although we may be able to make arrangements in some 
special cases.

Initial CfP period closes midnight Friday July 4th, but you only have to 
get your abstract in at this stage, after that you've got quite a bit of 
time to prep your talk or workshop!


Focus
=====

While OSDC will be host to a wide range of presentation topics, from 
running an open source business or community, to more technical 
presentations, the overall conference theme for 2014 is

Open: Open Source software, hardware, data and standards (protocols) 
enable higher quality, more secure products, and faster innovation.

Inclusive: Openness enables and encourages exploration, the foundation 
of education. Making products accessible to for instance vision impaired 
people becomes easier. Affordable products are available to those with 
less money. Women, kids, and many other groups can get involved more 
easily. These are all opportunities, we must still work to make them happen!

Connected: The last 18 months has seen a tremendous rise in the 
development of connected hardware, the connected home, wearables and 
sensor equipped devices.


Contribute!
===========

Remember, we have ample space for sessions, tutorials, hands-on 
workshops with keyboard or soldering iron (or both!) and Miniconfs.

Go on, put in your cool ideas today! http://2014.osdc.com.au/


Cheers, Arjen.
