Abstracts for Fall 2009 Microsoft ASP.NET Connections Due April 5
I am putting out a call for abstracts to present at the Fall 2009 Microsoft ASP.NET Connections conference in Las Vegas, Nov 9-13 2009. The due date for submissions is April 5, 2009.
For submitting sessions, please use this URL:
Please keep the abstracts under 200 words each and in one paragraph. No bulleted items and line breaks, and please use a spell-checker. Do not email abstracts, you need to use the web-based tool to submit them.
Please submit at least 3 abstracts, but it would help your chances of being selected if you submitted 5 or more abstracts. Also, you are encouraged to suggest all-day pre or post conference workshops as well.
We need to finalize the conference content and the tracks layout by the middle of April, so we need your abstracts by April 5th. No exceptions will be granted on late submissions!
For Fall 2009 we will have a separate, dedicated Silverlight track of talks in addition to the ASP.NET talks, so please include those Silverlight talk proposals. Anything on ASP.NET or Silverlight is fair game. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
* ASP.NET Webforms
* ASP.NET AJAX
* Silverlight 2.0 / 3.0
* ASP.NET MVC
* SP1 features, including Entity Framework/LINQ to Entities, Dynamic Data, Routing support, ADO.NET Data Services
* ASP.NET 4.0 features, as long as your NDA does not preclude you from mentioning them in April 2009.
Please realize that while we want a lot of the new and the cool, it's also okay to propose sessions on the more mundane "real world" stuff as it pertains to ASP.NET or Silverlight.
What you will get if selected:
* $500 per regular conference talk.
* Compensation for full-day workshops ranges from $500 for 1-20 attendees to $2500 for 200+ attendees.
* Coach airfare and hotel stay paid by the conference.
* Free admission to all of the co-located conferences
* Speaker party
* The adoration of attendees
Your continued suport of Microsoft ASP.NET Connections and the other DevConnections conferences is appreciated. Good luck and thank you,
Microsoft ASP.NET Conference Chair
