Call For Papers

CodeCon is the premier showcase of active hacker projects. It is an
excellent opportunity for developers to demonstrate their work and keep
abreast of what's going on in their communities.

All presentations must include working demonstrations, ideally open
source. Presenters must be one of the active developers of the code in
question. We emphasize that demonstrations be of *working* code.

CodeCon strongly encourages presenters from non-commercial and academic

knowledge by providing free registration to workshop presenters and
discounted registration to full-time students.

We hereby solicit papers and demonstrations.

per publication, and must be approved prior to the registration deadline
(to be announced later). If you are a member of the press, and interested
