The Campaign Is Upon Us

Public Voting for Oracle OpenWorld 2009 Sessions Opens Next Week

MixVote.jpgLast year’s Suggest a Session feature was such a hit, we expanded it this year. For Oracle OpenWorld 2009, we invited our customers, partners, and developers to play a larger role in the content presented by submitting their best ideas, recent findings, or success stories for inclusion in the schedule. Our Call for Papers ended in late April, and our content team has been busy poring over the submissions, adding their favorites to the show’s agenda. Now it’s your chance to weigh in.

We’re gearing up for the session voting to begin Tuesday, June 16, on Oracle Mix. You can browse all the proposed sessions, pick your favorites, and elevate the cream of the crop right into the show’s schedule.

If you submitted a topic during our Call for Papers, start lobbying for it now. Let people in your network know that voting opens soon. Share you topic on Oracle Mix. Update your Twitter status. Mention it on your blog. Post a link to your Facebook and LinkedIn profiles. You might even want to leave a comment on this post. Make sure that everyone you know is ready to select your session for the show.

And, just in case you need another reminder, don’t forget to register for the conference before the Early Bird rates end in August. We’re only four months away from the start of the world's largest event dedicated to helping enterprises harness the power of information, so register today.


Are papers which were submitted to Oracle Develop and didn't get in also going to be up for voting?

Vote for change. Vote for a bridge to the future. Vote for hope. All my presentations promise the above. Please vote for my presentations.

Shay, Our content team reviewed approximately 3,000 submissions for this year's show. They selected tons for inclusion, and will be putting hundreds more—including Oracle Develop entries—up for public voting on Oracle Mix beginning Tuesday. Stephen

I got a session acceptance e-mail and hence got excluded from the excitement of campaigning. Many thanks to the selection committee - I am spared from another four weeks of anxious waiting.
