If it’s October, that must mean it’s time for… spring?!
Normal people are just starting to enjoy the autumn, but the Exchange Connections staff is preparing for our Spring 2008 show (April 20-24, 2008 in sunny Orlando!) As part of that process, I’m issuing a call for session proposals.
A few ground rules:
- You need to submit at least 3 abstracts, but I encourage you to submit more than 3 to give us more flexibility in choosing sessions.
- Speakers will be chosen within a few weeks of the closing date, which is currently 10/19.
- All selected speakers will have their travel expenses (air + hotel) reimbursed; in addition you’ll be paid a stipend of $400 per talk.
What kind of talks should you propose? Anything having to do with Exchange (including DR, security, migration, and best practices), Live Communications Server/Office Communications Server, or related topics. The more technical, the better! (If you plan to repeat sessions from a previous event, please make sure you update the title and abstract to reflect the latest in the Exchange world.)
Please, no vendor “pimp sessions”. If you work for a software or hardware vendor, feel free to propose technical sessions that aren’t focused on your product. If you work for a PR firm, your principals are welcome to submit technical sessions.
To submit sessions, please e-mail me and I’ll send you the instructions. We’re using a SharePoint-based tool that takes much of the work out of the submission process. Please do not e-mail me abstracts!
