SCALE 6x Gears Up

The Sixth Annual SoCal Linux Expo will be February 8th-10th, 2008. It 
will again be at the Westin LAX. SCALE has reserved more of the hotel 
resources for SCALE 6X which will help address some of the seminar 
crowding issues that arose during S5X (success is a nice problem to have).

Over the last two SCALEs, the Expo has expanded to included specialized 
conferences on the Friday prior to SCALE. The Expo will “expand upon the 
expansion” for SCALE 6x: the Women in Open Source conference will return 
for its second year; the health care conference, now knows as DOHCS – 
Demonstrating Open Source Health Care Systems, returns for a second 
time. Last year DOHCS was a single track. For SCALE 6X, DOHCS splits 
into two tracks, a technical track and a business track.

And newly added for SCALE 6X is a Friday conference on education: “Open 
Source in Education” which focuses on opportunities for Open Source in 
the field of education .

If you have any experience in any of the above-mentioned areas, please 
consider sharing it with the Open Source community at SCALE: the calls 
for papers for SCALE and for the Friday conferences can be found here: 
All of the calls are now open for submittals. For SCALE 4X and 5X the 
speaker slots filled rapidly; we anticipate the same for SCALE 6X. So if 
you're considering speaking, don't delay submitting your proposal. 
Submittal info for each conference can be found on their respective CFP 

If your organization is considering a booth on the SCALE Expo floor, be 
advised that we no more booths than last year, and last year they went 
quickly. If you want to ensure that you have a booth reserved, apply for 
one NOW. If you're a non-profit group, complete the application form at 
and send it to gareth socallinuxexpo org

The second SCALE IRC chat will be September 16th , at 7:00 pm PST. It 
will be held in the #scale-chat channel of OFTC ( If you 
have questions or comments about SCALE, feel free to join us.

SCALE 6X looks to be even better than S5X; mark your calendar – be in 
Los Angeles February 8th-10th , 2008!
