DRAFT. If you're not a program committee member your changes will be reverted
Following up on the success of the Dublin conference, the global developer community around MeeGo is set to reunite in San Francisco for the MeeGo Conference Spring 2011. From application developers to platform designers, from hardware vendors to open source enthusiasts - anyone engaged in MeeGo is invited to contribute and participate at San Francisco Regency Hyatt, California, USA from May 23 through May 25th, 2010. Device/Product development - New devices and war stories of product development (experiences, process, challenges, differentiation) - Improvements and developments in MeeGo hardware adaptation (performance, power, Linux kernel developments, porting process, etc.) - Information around supported hardware platforms (tutorials/introductions, improvements/developments, challenges) Platform development - Current and possible future components within the MeeGo architecture (status, overview and roadmap) - Platform tools and process (tutorials/introductions, improvements/developments, tips and tricks, etc.) - Quality Assurance (methods, tools, tutorials, experiences) App development - MeeGo API and SDK (tutorials, news, roadmaps, tips and tricks for making great applications, development tools and helpers) - Design guidelines and User Experience (different MeeGo verticals, form factors, crossing the boundaries, differentiation) - Apps existing and upcoming (development stories, sharing experience, etc.) MeeGo project, process and progress - Activity reports and roadmaps from project areas and roadmaps - Project challenges and discussions on project and process - Marketing, outreach; engaging companies, governments and others - Community building and fostering - Documentation, localisation, artwork, infrastructure But we also welcome submissions on any other MeeGo related topics. Be creative, the program committee will look at each and every one to create a vibrant and interesting conference. This includes community and open source related proposals as well as commercial or proprietary developments around MeeGo. Submissions should include: - Author(s) (including their work affiliation) - Short BIO (100-150 words, written in 3rd person) - Short Abstract (120-150 words, crisply defines the topic) - Abstract (300-500 words, explains the scope of the presentation) - Preferred session duration (default is 30 minutes, but we'll entertain other requests where possible) Please also mention if this will include any form of product presentation. In general we are not soliciting sales pitches, but it is ok for technical presentations to refer to (or announce) MeeGo related products. If you will need travel support, also note this in your submission. We expect to have a registration / abstract submission site around FIXME. Submissions will be due by FIXME. Around that time we'll open a second process for lightning talk submissions. We expect to have a large subset of the presentations approved and scheduled by FIXME and are planning to have the final program ready by FIXME.
