The conference provides a great opportunity for open source developers, users, hackers, and makers to share their ideas and further improve their projects.

The Call for Proposals (CFP) has now been open for four weeks, and the quality of submissions so far has been fantastic. Originally scheduled to be closed this week, the papers committee has agreed to extend the deadline by two weeks to 20 July 2013, as there's been some requests for extension from potential speakers, and we want to make sure that everyone a chance to have their proposal considered!

And now with the offer of a Golden Ticket, there's an extra incentive to put your proposal in to be considered by the papers committee, and let them decide whether your presentation, tutorial or miniconf will be a hit at

Michael Davies and Michael Still, papers committee chairs, are excited about the submissions they have seen so far, and they want to ensure that everyone has had a chance to submit a proposal about something they are passionate about. "We've got a great eclectic mix of proposals so far, but since the community has asked for more time to get their proposals in, we're happy to facilitate that!", the Michaels said.

If you have been working on something interesting, now is the time to tell the world! Visit, and submit your proposal today!
