OPEN HARDWARE SUMMIT: Call for Speakers!

Pt 10220-1
Deadline extended, if you do OSH – submit a talk!

**Call for Speakers***Please Redistribute***

NOTE: CALL HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO AUG 3rd!

OPEN HARDWARE SUMMIT: www.openhardwaresummit.org

Bug Labs, Creative Commons and MAKE invite open hardware advocates to submit a talk to the Open Hardware Summit. The Open Hardware Summit will be a venue to present, discuss and draw attention to the open source hardware movement currently happening. The summit will focus on hardware as a system, thus encompassing conversations of software, management, legal, and other factors surrounding open source hardware. Talks should focus on your research and insights in manufacturing, materials, licensing and hardware as a system, offering advice to foster and inspire new open hardware innovations. A panel will decide on speakers, however break-out rooms for mini-lectures and discussions will be available. Talks targeted toward marketing your product will not be accepted.

Talks will include topics of:

* Optimal paths to create hardware
* Open Source legalities
* Supporting derivatives and community interaction
* Manufacturing / Timeline advice
* Why Open Source Hardware is important
* Geographical hurdles in developing hardware

Submissions should be no longer than one page in length and be accompanied with a bio of the speaker (That’s you!). Tell us in two separate paragraphs the subject matter of the talk and what makes this talk significant to the open source hardware community.

Speaker abstracts and bios are due on July 31 by 11:59pm (EST). Submissions should be emailed to Alicia Gibb and Ayah Bdeir with the subject line “Open Hardware Summit submission”. Talks will be be accepted by a panel of reviewers. Plan to speak for approximately 45 minutes. The Summit will take place on Sept. 23rd from 10am-5pm at the Hall of Science. Please direct questions and submissions to Chairs Alicia Gibb and Ayah Bdeir.
