Cocoon GetTogether 2004 Call for Proposals
For the third year in a row, the Cocoon GetTogether is back. Same place
(Ghent - Belgium) and almost same time (targeting October 11th-12th).
In the next few weeks we will spread all the details about the
conference plan, logistics, costs and the like. For now, it's our
pleasure to officially open the Call For Proposals phase. We are
looking for you to come on stage and talk about all things Cocoon.
People who want to present during the GetTogether are kindly requested
to send in a presentation proposal. Presentation topics will be
screened for cluefulness, in the sense that we don't want any
commercial presentations. Introductory, tutorial-like stuff into new or
advanced topics are much appreciated though. Please send in your
presentation proposal to gt2004-speaking at orixo.com - see below for a
template to help you in filling out a proposal.
