TechEd’07 Call for Papers is Now On! In case you missed it (but how could you?), the TechEd’07 “call for papers” is open. All you have to do to play an active role — and gain real, tangible benefits — is to submit a proposal with your topic. Deadline Extended to This Sunday The original deadline of May 2nd has been extended to midnight (U.S. Pacific time) on Sunday May 6th for you to propose a presentation topic. From those submitted, our SDN and BPX community members will select 45 to be presented… 15 at each of three locations. Big Benefits for Presenters If you’re one of those selected to present at TechEd’07, you’ll get a 60-minute time slot on the stage with a microphone, lectern, projector, and a roomful of interested and supportive attendees. You’ll also get more than your 60-minutes of fame. TechEd presenters get a free lecture-only ticket to either Las Vegas, Munich, or Bangalore. Presenters also get loaded-up with 130 SDN and BPX points as our show of appreciation. Some will be immortalized on video and featured in our “Premium Access Zone” (PAZ) for replay by all of the full-ticket TechEd attendees, and by anyone else who chooses to purchase PAZ access. It’s alot of fun to be at the center of the action at TechEd. Not convinced? … Just check-out these photos and these videos. Best of all, you receive the adoration and appreciation of colleagues for sharing your knowledge, experience, and wisdom so that others can learn from and adopt your ideas.
