    on how to do so.

    Call for Proposals - ACCU 2011

    Submission deadline: 26th of September 2010
    Email proposals to: Giovanni Asproni,
    twitter: @accu2011 #accu2011

    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 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
    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
    http://www.accu.org/conference 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.
