Dear all,

This is a formal call for papers. The Open Source India Tech Days (formerly 
LinuxAsia) [www.osidays.com] is scheduled for March 12-14, 2009, at the 
Chennai Trade Centre, Chennai. The 2009 edition will have a strong flavour of 
technology in it—thus the addition of the word "Tech Days". The target 
audience of OSI Tech Days ’09 will be (1) IT Managers and (2) Software 
Developers, who in turn will represent the needs of India’s varied industry 
segments. Following are the track details for the event:

Software Developers’ Track
12th March: FOSS-enabled software development
13th March: FOSS-powered Mobile phones (and devices)

IT Managers’ Track
12th March: FOSS Tools for IT Managers
13th March: Virtualization and Cloud Computing 

14th March: FOSS-powered desktop (KDE, GNOME, OpenOffice.org, Mozilla, etc.)

Additional note: Considering the world-wide recession, the idea is to turn 
this into an opportunity (for good) for large-scale FOSS adoption around the 
region. Thus, the idea behind Tech Days is to demonstrate to the mass how with 
FOSS we can make computing better, faster and cheaper, whether it's deployment 
or development.

We're looking for experts in their particular domain of work, who could be 
working for an organisation, or as an individual. You can ping us off-list 
with the following details at lfyedit [AT] efyindia [DOT] com:

[1] Which particular track and the target audience of the talk.
[2] Title of the talk, with a brief outline.
[3] A little bit of background information about yourself.

[5] Whether you'd require travel, logistics, or any other facilities. 

With best regards,
