The SCALE team has started ramping up towards SCALE 2012 next January. SCALE 10X (January 20-22) will be the tenth anniversary of the Linux Expo, and we hope to make it a special one! SCALE started 10 years ago with a single day event at USC with two tracks and 400 attendees. Considering that SCALE 10X will be a three day event, with as many as a half-dozen tracks and possibly as many as 2,500 attendees, it's clear that Open Source software is alive and thriving in Southern California! Even though the CFP has only been open for 10 days, we've already had a strong response. If you're considering submitting a paper, we recommend you don't wait too long. Stay tuned for more news about speakers, sponsors and presentations as the plans for SCALE 10X firm up! Note - the SCALE web site has been rebuilt and is still being tweaked.
