Oracle OpenWorld 2009 Call for Papers

Guest Author

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.

    I presented in 2000 and that was after a Call for Papers but I think that might have been the last time.

    If I submit paper work for a session for OpenWorld 2009, and I'm selected, what do I get ?

    Is there going to be a competition on Oracle Mix, similar to last year, where the community can vote on their favorite abstracts and the winners gets a session?

    I'm told that the submissions that are not selected via the Call-for-Papers process will be exposed through Oracle Mix and made available for voting, with some number of slots being reserved for the top vote-getters. I don't think you can actually submit a brand-new idea via Mix however.
