The call for papers is now open for Ruby East 2007, to be held
September 27-28 in Philadelphia (USA).

The conference features one day of intense, real-world tutorials
followed by a jam-packed day of sessions across multiple tracks. We
expect this year's event to be the largest Ruby conference on the East
Coast.

** Topics & Format

Accepted sessions and tutorials will be divided over several,
simultaneous tracks covering both the Ruby programming language and
the popular Ruby on Rails application framework. To help us ensure a
mix of beginner and advanced content, all proposals should be marked

Appropriate topics include:
- Introductions to Ruby, Rails, Rake, RubyGems and other key
technologies practical how-tos on the development, tuning and hosting
of Ruby applications

Radiant)
- Deep technical dives on Ruby features or the internals of innovative
projects
- Case studies of large-scale, real-world Ruby and/or Rails deployments
- Wildcard topics that Rubyists may find interesting (e.g. Erlang,
Scala, security)

Tutorials may be either 90 minutes or 180 minutes. Conference sessions
are limited to 60 minutes, which should include at least 10 minutes
for questions and discussion. All rooms will be equipped with
