Open Source Bridge: proposal deadline 31 March

Those of you who love Open Source Bridge: it's going to be June 20-23, in Portland, Oregon. The call for session proposals closes in a few days, on 31 March. Last month Denise mentioned she hasn't yet decided whether to treat OSB 2017 as a "take Dreamwidth people to this conference" conference. But regardless, figured you might want to know.

Changes this year: a Community Organizer track during the Friday unconference, more extracurricular activities, and "a new track to explore how activists are using technology, how open source communities are supporting activists, and how other open source and activist communities intersect."

Presentations, panels, sets of lightning talks, workshops, or other session types are welcome.

Presentations can fit either a short- or long-form slot. Short-form presentations will receive a 45 minute session, and long-form will have 1 hour and 45 minutes. Pick the format that best fits the scope and style of your presentation.


[Call for proposals]

Edited to add: They've extended the deadline, which is now 11:59 PM PDT (UTC-7:00) on April 9th.
