 Call for Papers Opens for ApacheCon US 2008

 !REMINDER: this will be a short CFP, ending on 3 April, so please be
 sure to get your CFP submissions in soon!

 The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) invites submissions to its official
 users' conference, ApacheCon US 2008, held 3 November through 7
 November, 2008 at the Sheraton New Orleans.  ApacheCon serves as a forum
 for showcasing the ASF's latest developments, including its projects,
 membership, and communities.  ApacheCon offers unparalleled educational
 opportunities, with dedicated presentations, hands-on trainings, and
 sessions that address core technology, development, business/marketing,
 and licensing issues in Open Source.

 The conference program includes competitively selected presentations,
 trainings/workshops, and a small number of invited speakers. All
 sessions undergo a peer review process by the ApacheCon Conference
 Planning team.

 With the great success of ApacheCon US 2007, we are excited to move to
 New Orleans in 2008.  We're proud to announce that we are going to
 intensify and deepen the pre-conference trainings by offering 2-day
 trainings alongside full- and half-day trainings, and each training
 session will have certifications of completion for those who fulfill all
 the requirements of the training.

 The ASF comprises some of the most active and recognized developers in
 the Open Source community.  By bringing together the pioneers,
 developers, and users of flagship Open Source technologies, ApacheCon
 provides an influential platform for dialogue, between the speaker and
 the audience, between project contributors and the community at large,
 traversing a wide range of ideas, expertise, and personalities.

 ApacheCon welcomes submissions from like-minded delegates across many
 fields, geographic locations, and areas of development.  Please note you
 do not need to be committer or project contributor at the ASF to submit
 a proposal!  The unique nature of the Apache community lends itself to
 creating a conference content that is not only the best of Open Source
 but cutting edge as well.
