Call for Developer Submissions
We are pleased to be able to offer a special very low rate for
independent developers presenting on the developers track. This is
available only for self-financing developers (i.e. not receiving
expenses from their employer or university), who are giving presentations on
the developers track (including lightening talks).
The rate is optionally:
- a free "One Day Attendance" for the day that the developer is
- £199 for a "Standard Passport" conference registration for the whole week.
This rate is obtainable by email application to the
Developer Track Chairs along with a presentation submission (see below).
The chairs thank Hewlett Packard for their generosity in sponsoring this rate.
The developers' track consists of presentations by developers for
developers. The audience is expected to be technically capable,
and wanting to see a 'wow' factor with new functionality.
Technical nitty-gritty is encouraged. Demos are good.
Lightening talks consisting entirely of a demo are encouraged.
To present your work on the developers' track, please respond
to this call for submissions, by giving us a short description
of what it is you would like to present, how long a presentation
you would like to give, and indicate for which session(s) it
would be appropriate.
