Calling Out Around the World

Call for Papers is Open Now

Howard%20Street%202008.jpgOracle OpenWorld 2009 is your opportunity to be a part of the conversation. And this year, based on your feedback, we’re inviting customers, partners, and developers to play an even larger role in the show.

Starting today, you can add to the rich content of Oracle OpenWorld by submitting your best ideas, recent findings, or success stories to the Oracle OpenWorld 2009 Call for Papers. We can’t wait to hear what innovations the Oracle community has been discovering since the 2008 event.

If you’re not quite ready to get your paper in today, don’t fret. You have until April 19 to submit your contribution. The Oracle OpenWorld content team will review every submission, picking their favorites to add to the Content Catalog. Some select sessions not picked for the show will be up for public voting via Oracle Mix starting in early June. Voting will last for 3 weeks, and we’ll announce the winners shortly after that.

Here are some hints to help your paper get noticed:
• Give your paper a clear and concise title.
• Create an abstract that describes your presentation’s value for attendees.
• Make sure you can categorize your submission with relevant tracks.
• Include tags to help classify your paper.
• Tell us the type of session.
• Pick an appropriate Session Category.

Remember, you have until April 19 to get in your papers. We’ll notify selected speakers June 9. After you’ve submitted your paper, let us know how the process went.

The preparations for the show are coming at such a fast pace, it won’t be long before we’re dancing in the streets—Howard Street, in particular.

Update: The Call for Papers deadline has been extended until 11:59 p.m. PT on Sunday, April 26.


This is indeed a great opportunity to listen to customer case studies and battlefield experiences of Oracle road warriors. A very innovative and welcome move from OpenWorld organizers to have an 'open source' presentation pool for such a marquee event!
