Science Fair!

Do you need help with an awesome project you're working on? Do you have a phenomenal demo you want to show off to your fellow Mozillians? Are you working on experiment or idea that needs feedback or testers?

At the Mozilla 2010 Summit you'll have your chance to show off what you've got and talk with your fellow Mozillians about it face-to-face!

We're setting aside part of one afternoon for our first ever "Mozilla Summit Science Fair", where participants will set up their laptops and demos in a single large area of the hotel that will have an array of tables, chairs, power-outlets and LCD panels. Everyone else will wander around the exhibits, stopping to chat, watch demos, ask questions, and generally just dive in, talk about stuff, and vote on their favorites.

The Science Fair is your chance for you to present something -- research, prototypes, demos, crazy ideas, experiments, trials, tests, investigations, studies, or whatever else -- in a casual setting to some of the smartest and best people working on building and supporting the Open Web today.

Space is limited!

But space is limited! While we'd love to have every Summit attendee participate in the Science Fair, we only have so much time and space. There are a limited number of slots available, which will be assigned on a first-come-first-served basis.

Sign up!

If you want to participate, please head over to the Summit Science Fair Sign-up Sheet and fill in the form as soon as you can. Science Fair slots will be assigned on a first-come-first-served basis, with sign-ups ending on June 15th.
