Three weeks until Summit!
The excitement is building with only three short weeks until the Summit begins! Most importantly, the deadline for submitting proposals for Summit sessions is tomorrow (or, in some places, today)! We will not be extending the deadline since it looks like we're close to filling all of the slots, so if you're going to sign up, sign up now!
While session proposals are due immediately, we'll be accepting sign-ups for the World Expo and on the Job Board right up until the beginning of the Summit. We really need everyone to actively contribute to the Summit in some way, so if you're not currently signed up to lead a session, talk, or other exhibit, you should really think about helping to organize your community's contribution to the World Expo, or help Summit organizers out through the Job Board.
Last call! Proposals due now!
If you plan to lead a Breakout Session, take part in the Science Fair, or give a Lightning Talk you must sign up within the next 24 hours, with the final deadline being 11:59pm (Pacific time) Tuesday, June 15th!
We still have some space in the Science Fair, so if you're not signed up to participate in that event yet but have something -- a demo, experiment, idea, research, or prototype -- you would like to show off and discuss with your fellow Mozillians in a casual setting, this is your chance. If you're not sure what to do, you might find some inspiration from the list of what other people will be exhibiting at this event!
This is your last chance
to sign up for Breakout Sessions, Lightning Talks, or the Science Fair. Please ensure that you are signed up before midnight (11:59pm Pacific time) June 15th
. Please sign-up as soon as you can:
All travel has been booked, and we are almost finished sending out finalized itineraries. When we have completed this process, we will send out an email confirming that it is done. If you have not received your itinerary at that time, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Until then, we appreciate your patience and understanding.
We have also arranged shuttles from the office to SFO for those who are on the early SFO flight, or for those commuting from the South Bay that need transportation to the airport. We will post a schedule for the shuttle times on the wiki once we've confirmed the details.
Hotel Rooming List
Also, as we have almost 600 confirmed attendees for the Summit, some people will have the opportunity to share a room. We will send out more information as we start locking down the rooming list, but in the mean time, if you have medical or other reasons that you cannot share a room please send an email to email@example.com. Similarly, if you and another Summit attendee would like to share a room, please send an email to us with both of your names.
World Expo & You
The Mozilla World Expo is your opportunity to show off your community, your culture, and the work you are doing in your part of the world to help Mozilla and our mission.
You can participate by creating an exhibit with your local community members! Show us what you are most proud of, or show us something that might give other people insight into your culture and community (food, costume, music, and more). We'll be accepting sign-ups for the World Expo right up until the beginning of the Summit.
We would really like to see every country, culture, and community represented at the World Expo so please take a few moments to discuss it with your local team and sign up today. Let's make this inaugural Mozilla World Expo something to remember!
Just a quick reminder that we're looking for people to help out with various tasks and events throughout the Summit!
We've put together a Job Board that lists the things we need people to work on and a quick form where you can sign up to help. Opportunities include things like helping with greeting people at the airport, Summit registration, Science Fair and World Expo organization, and a bunch of other ways you can pitch in and help. More information, including the current list of things you can sign up for, is available on the sign-up form.
Summit 2010 Twitter & IRC
You can read all about the various Summit communications channels we have set up over on the wiki, but I wanted to highlight two of them here:
About this newsletter
- @MozillaSummit is the official Summit twitter account, which we use to send out up-to-the-minute news and updates. We'll be using this throughout the course of the Summit as well, so it's important that as many attendees follow it as possible.
- #moz10 IRC channel on irc.mozilla.org is the official Summit IRC channel. We may create smaller, topic-specific backchannels for various things, but this is the central, primary channel for all things related to the Summit. If you're attending the Summit and are on IRC, you should join #moz10.
This is the third Mozilla Summit 2010 newsletter. We'll be sending these out weekly leading up to the Summit so you know what to expect, what we'll be doing, and how you can sign up for and participate in the various Summit sessions and events.
You can find an archived copies of Summit news here:
