Introducing OSCON Data and OSCON Java?

For thirteen years the O'Reilly Open Source Convention has been
bringing together people from across the open source universe to
learn, collaborate, and inspire each other. This year, we're delighted
to announce two new conferences, co-located with OSCON, focusing on
key areas where open source is driving innovation: Data and Java?.

OSCON Data is the first of its kind: bringing together open source
culture and data hackers to cover data management at a very practical
level. From disks and databases to big data and analytics, OSCON Data
will have instruction and inspiration from the people who actually do
the work.

OSCON Java focuses on the Java platform, including the breadth of open
source technologies that make up the Java ecosystem. We're looking for
proposals on different tools, languages, and platforms that are core
to making Java developers more productive and successful.

We invite you to submit a proposal for a chance to lead a session or
workshop at the inaugural OSCON Data and OSCON Java!

OSCON Data: Call for Speakers - Proposals due Monday March 14

The call for speakers for OSCON Data closes in just a few days. Now is your chance to be a part of the program.

Topics we're looking for:    
    * Data storage, management, and design
    * Big data and analytics
    * Distributed data
