SCALE ANNOUNCEMENT: Call for Papers for Southern California Linux Expo
9x opens September 1st

LOS ANGELES – Organizers of the Southern California Linux Expo 9x have
announced that the Call for Papers for SCALE 9x opens Wednesday, Sept.
1, with five speaker tracks.

With the continued growth of Open Source software in business, SCALE
will address the need for system management knowledge by adding a
speaker track focused on system administration.  Combined with the two
specialized tracks -- Beginners and Developers -- and the two general
interest tracks, SCALE 9x will have content for every attendee.

“With a larger show and more opportunities for speakers, we’re looking
for a cross-section of speakers that will coincide with the wide range
of attendees expected for SCALE 9X,” said Shyam Kapadia, who chairs
the SCALE speakers committee.

Proposal abstracts are reviewed by a committee and are evaluated
solely on merit. The closing date for the call for papers is Dec. 13,
2010, and organizers ask that the submission dates be strictly honored
in order to provide the committee enough time to choose the best

SCALE 9X will also  host tutorial sessions under a separate track.
Those submitting presentations are asked to mention if the
presentation is appropriate for a lab in the proposal.
Technical set up – including a microphone, overhead projector and a
laptop running Linux – can be available, but presentations must be
done in a non-proprietary format.

SCALE 9X runs from Feb. 25-27, 2011, at the Hilton Los Angeles Airport
hotel. For more information on SCALE 9X, visit
