We invite you to propose a session for this leading software
development conference.

We have a long tradition of high quality sessions covering
many aspects of software development, from programming languages
(e.g., Java, C#, Python, Erlang, Haskell, Ruby, Groovy, C, C++, etc.),
and technologies (libraries, frameworks, databases, etc.) to subjects
about the wider development environment such as testing, architecture
and design, development process, analysis, patterns, project
management, and softer aspects such as team building, communication
and leadership.

Sessions may be either tutorial-based, presentations of case studies,
take the form of interactive workshops. We are always open to novel
formats, so
please contact us with your idea.
The standard length of a session is 90 minutes, with some exceptions.
In order to allow less experienced speakers to speak at
the conference without the pressure of filling a full 90 minutes, we
reserve a number of shorter 45 minute sessions.

If you would like to run a session please let us know by emailing your
proposals to [email protected] by the 26th of September 2010 at the
Please include the following to support your proposal:

  • Title (a working title if necessary)
  • Type (tutorial, workshop, case study, etc.)
  • Duration (45/90 min)
  • Speaker name(s)
  • Speaker biography (max 150 words)
  • Description (approx 250 words)

Proposals about specific products and technologies will be taken under
consideration only if they are open source and available for free (at
least for
non-commercial use). If you are interested in talking about a
technology, there is the possibility of “sponsored sessions” which are
presented outside the standard conference schedule. Please, email
[email protected] for more information.

If you are interested in knowing more about the conference you may
like to consult the website for previous years’ editions at for background information.

Speakers running one or more full 90 minute sessions receive a
special conference package including free attendance, and assistance
with their travel and accommodation costs. Speakers filling
a 45 minute slot qualify for free conference attendance on the day of
their session.

The conference has always benefited from the strength of its
programme. Please help us make 2011 another successful event.
