COLUMBUS, OHIO -- June 26, 2007 -- The call for presentations deadline for Ohio LinuxFest 2007 is approaching rapidly. The last date for presentation submissions is July 15, 2007.

Organizers have already received more than two dozen submissions since the registration form went live earlier this year, and there's still time for prospective speakers to get in the door. Presentations should be educational and fun, and provide attendees with useful information related to Linux and open source. If you are interested in speaking at this year's event, please submit your presentation proposal at http://www.ohiolinux.org/speakers.html.

The Ohio LinuxFest is a free event run entirely by volunteers, to help provide a friendly, community oriented conference that focuses on educating users about FOSS in a fun environment. Because few conferences reach out to users in the Mid-West, the Ohio LinuxFest is an unique opportunity for users to come and learn about Linux, and find out how they can make use of Linux at home and in their businesses.

Ohio LinuxFest 2007 will be held Friday, September 28 through Sunday, September 30 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center. Most presentations will take place on Saturday. The audience will consist of a wide range of Linux community members, including Linux enthusiasts, independent developers, systems integrators, and IT architects and engineers. Organizers are seeking speakers to address community-related technology and/or topics of interest. Each presenter will be allowed at least 45 minutes, and organizers will provide A/V equipment.

Previous speakers include Jeff Waugh of the GNOME project, Google's Chris DiBona, Apache Software Foundation member Rich Bowen, Linux International's Jon 'maddog' Hall, Jorge Castro, and many other members of the Linux and open source community.

All prospective speakers will be notified after July 15 about the status of their proposal. If you have questions, please email the Ohio LinuxFest planning committee at team@ohiolinux.org, or speaker chair Joe 'Zonker' Brockmeier at zonker@ohiolinux.org.
