For the first time in many years, a public call-for-papers has been issued for Oracle OpenWorld.
Can anyone remember the last time this happened, if ever? Not in my tenure here (since 2003).
You have until
April 19 April 26 to submit your paper; every submission will be carefully considered - and those lucky few will be notified on June 9. Some sessions that are not picked for the show will available for public voting via Oracle Mix starting in early June. After three weeks of voting, winners will be announced.
The Oracle OpenWord blog has some useful suggestions for getting your paper noticed here.
