2003 O'Reilly Open Source Convention Call For Participation
Embracing and Extending Proprietary Software

O'Reilly & Associates invites programmers, developers, strategists, 
and technical staff to submit proposals to lead tutorial and conference 
sessions at the 2003 Open Source Software Convention, slated for 
July 7-11 in Portland, OR. 

Proposals are due February 15, 2003. For more information please 
visit our OSCON website

The theme this year is "Embracing and Extending Proprietary Software." 
Few companies use only one vendor's software on desktops, back office, 
and servers. Variety in operating systems and applications is becoming 
the norm, for sound financial and technical reasons. With variety comes 
the need for open unencumbered standards for data exchange and service 
interoperability. You can address the theme from any angle you like--for 
example, you might talk about migrating away from commercial software 
such as Microsoft Windows, or instead place your emphasis on coexistence.
