Subject: [gentoo-project] SCALE 6x Gears Up
Date: Mon, 10 Sep 2007 21:31:16
1 The Sixth Annual SoCal Linux Expo will be February 8th-10th, 2008. It
2 will again be at the Westin LAX. SCALE has reserved more of the hotel
3 resources for SCALE 6X which will help address some of the seminar
4 crowding issues that arose during S5X (success is a nice problem to have).
6 Over the last two SCALEs, the Expo has expanded to included specialized
7 conferences on the Friday prior to SCALE. The Expo will “expand upon the
8 expansion” for SCALE 6x: the Women in Open Source conference will return
9 for its second year; the health care conference, now knows as DOHCS –
10 Demonstrating Open Source Health Care Systems, returns for a second
11 time. Last year DOHCS was a single track. For SCALE 6X, DOHCS splits
12 into two tracks, a technical track and a business track.
14 And newly added for SCALE 6X is a Friday conference on education: “Open
15 Source in Education” which focuses on opportunities for Open Source in
16 the field of education .
18 If you have any experience in any of the above-mentioned areas, please
19 consider sharing it with the Open Source community at SCALE: the calls
20 for papers for SCALE and for the Friday conferences can be found here:

23 All of the calls are now open for submittals. For SCALE 4X and 5X the
24 speaker slots filled rapidly; we anticipate the same for SCALE 6X. So if
25 you're considering speaking, don't delay submitting your proposal.
26 Submittal info for each conference can be found on their respective CFP
27 pages.
29 If your organization is considering a booth on the SCALE Expo floor, be
30 advised that we no more booths than last year, and last year they went
31 quickly. If you want to ensure that you have a booth reserved, apply for
32 one NOW. If you're a non-profit group, complete the application form at

36 The second SCALE IRC chat will be September 16th , at 7:00 pm PST. It
37 will be held in the #scale-chat channel of OFTC ( If you
