EU MozCamp 2008 Session Proposals

The EU Mozcamp 2008 will include 2 full days of sessions. All invited participants are invited to propose and lead sessions.

Session is the generic term covering "presentations," "tutorials", etc.

Please only propose a session that you intend to lead. If you'd like someone else to run a session, talk with or email them directly to discuss.

Please create a new wiki page for your proposal that includes headers for Session Title, Session Leaders, Summary, and Agenda.

Please let us know if you you would like to open your session to the general public or keep it amongst invited Mozilla participants. As mentionned on the EU MozCamp general Wiki, we believe we can invite and sponsor a maximum of 150 participants. Additionally, we do expect there will be the extra possibility to open the event up to a wider audience (up to 150 additional people), however, costs for these extra places will not be covered and we await feedback from session leaders.
