MeeGo Extends Call for Proposals

Aug 24, 2010

You have until Friday, August 26 to submit additional proposals.

MeeGo Community Manager Dawn Foster announced that the call for proposals for the first-ever MeeGo Conference had been extended to August 26.



"We've had a great response to the MeeGo Call for Proposals with over 150 sessions submitted as of a few minutes ago, and I expect we'll see more today from the procrastinators who waited until the last day to submit," Foster said via a message to the MeeGo mailing list.



Foster highlighted four areas of interest that could use additional submissions:



Birds of a Feather (BOFs): There is no separate submission process for Birds of a Feather sessions. Tag BoF session proposals with "BOF" to designate it from regular proposals.



Project Leadership: Foster's same message mentioned a lack of product leadership submissions from key roles within MeeGo Governance. She suggested a "Meet the Team" BOF, as a good way to acquaint attendees with the team responsible for the project.



Middleware: Middleware includes a wide range of services including telephony, VOIP, Bluetooth, WebKit, 3D graphics with OpenGL, audio, UPnP, sensor framework, backup and restoration utilities, and codecs.



In-Vehicle Infotainment: With the recent announcement from GENIVI that MeeGo would become the de facto operating system for In-Vehicle Infotainment, IVI is hot right now for MeeGo.



The submission page can be found at The MeeGo Conference takes place November 15-17, in Dublin, Ireland.
