Preparations are in full swing for our very first Midwest Open Source Software Conference, to be held at the U of L Student Activities Center on May 18-19.
This is a great venue for a conference, with several large halls and a number of smaller meeting rooms we can use. Plus there is plenty of exhibit space available for groups and businesses to make their presence known. We already have some super presentations lined up. It's going to be a great networking event for the whole region!
But there are still plenty of pieces that need to come together. Right now we are concentrating on filling out our schedule with more presentations and workshops. And soliciting sponsors.
If you're involved with Open Source, you definitely want to be a part of this. I encourage you to consider speaking or doing a presentation or workshop on a subject in your area of interest and/or expertise.
Check out the conference website at http://mosscon.org/. Click on "Be a Speaker" for details on submitting your proposal.
But get to it! The deadline for submitting your preliminary proposal is this Friday, March 26!
