***Call for Speakers***
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. 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 8th by 11:59pm (EST).
Submissions should be emailed Alicia Gibb firstname.lastname@example.org, Talks
will be be accepted by a panel of reviewers.
