The Sixth Annual SoCal Linux Expo will be February 8th-10th, 2008. It
will again be at the Westin LAX. SCALE has reserved more of the hotel
resources for SCALE 6X which will help address some of the seminar
crowding issues that arose during S5X (success is a nice problem to have).
Over the last two SCALEs, the Expo has expanded to included specialized
conferences on the Friday prior to SCALE. The Expo will “expand upon the
expansion” for SCALE 6x: the Women in Open Source conference will return
for its second year; the health care conference, now knows as DOHCS –
Demonstrating Open Source Health Care Systems, returns for a second
time. Last year DOHCS was a single track. For SCALE 6X, DOHCS splits
into two tracks, a technical track and a business track.
And newly added for SCALE 6X is a Friday conference on education: “Open
Source in Education” which focuses on opportunities for Open Source in
the field of education .
If you have any experience in any of the above-mentioned areas, please
consider sharing it with the Open Source community at SCALE: the calls
for papers for SCALE and for the Friday conferences can be found here:
All of the calls are now open for submittals. For SCALE 4X and 5X the
speaker slots filled rapidly; we anticipate the same for SCALE 6X. So if
you're considering speaking, don't delay submitting your proposal.
Submittal info for each conference can be found on their respective CFP
If your organization is considering a booth on the SCALE Expo floor, be

The second SCALE IRC chat will be September 16th , at 7:00 pm PST. It
will be held in the #scale-chat channel of OFTC (irc.oftc.net). If you
have questions or comments about SCALE, feel free to join us.
SCALE 6X looks to be even better than S5X; mark your calendar – be in
Los Angeles February 8th-10th , 2008!
