Call for Papers for Oracle OpenWorld 2011

Oracle OpenWorld 2011 will be held this year from October 2-6, 2011 in San Francisco, CA. If you want to get a free conference registration, respond to the call for papers and submit a presentation proposal. If your submission is selected, you get a FREE registration!

This year the site for presentation proposal submission is a new one. So you have to register on the site first and then submit. Read the submission guidelines before your submit your proposal. There are strict character limits on abstracts and other sections.

The title should be 80 characters or less which is about 10-17 words. A creative title always helps to catch the selection committee's attention. My first submission at Oracle OpenWorld a decade ago was "Eyes Wide Shut - Migrate Your Enterprise to Oracle Applications". Thanks to Tom and Nicole, both the movie and my session had a public viewing. The abstract has to be 750 characters or less which is about 80-100 words. Review the Primary Track and Optional Track before selecting the appropriate one. Selecting the right track increases your chances of acceptance. One can aslo add tags to the submission, so the abstract is searchable using multiple criteria. Session Type can be either conference session or panel. Session category includes best practices, case study or product strategy / roadmap. The last one is usually reserved for Oracle speakers. For the first time, one can add a video link supporting the proposal content. Perhaps a creative spot on Youtube may come in handy. The official requirement is to have a video that provides more information or background on your topic.

Call for papers close on Sunday, March 27, 2011 at 11.59 Pacific Standard Time. So put on your thinking caps and showcase your success stories for the last 12 months at the largest enterprise application technology conference in the world. Get ready to get noticed!
