Call for Papers, Exchange Connections Spring 2008

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!
