I announced this CFP in January, but wanted to remind people as we got
closer to the March 1 deadline.
O'Reilly & Associates (my employer) is hosting the O'Reilly Open Source
Convention from July 22-26 in San Diego, CA.
We're hoping to continue last year's success with presentations which
either highlight Open Source work within the XML community or
demonstrate XML's usefulness to the broader Open Source community.
(There is also a separate track devoted to the Apache XML Project's

There are a few key areas that would be especially interesting, though
the conference will certainly go beyond these areas:
* Schemas - W3C XML Schema, RELAX NG, Schematron, etc.
* Presenting XML - SVG, XSL-FO, CSS, XHTML
* Modularization - XHTML, SVG, SMIL, other approaches
* Web Services - too many acronyms to list
* i18n/l10n - Unicode, making XML work in non-Unicode environs, etc.
Presentations should be aimed at a 45- or 90-minute time slot, though
full day and half day tutorials are another option.
There's a definite bias toward Open Source at this show, but more
general XML presentations are definitely welcome. Marketing talks will
be rejected outright, and speakers must submit their own proposals.
