Boston Call for Papers Now Open!

Enterprise 2.0 San Francisco 2009 just ended and was a huge success! Thanks to all who attended, all of our speakers and exhibitors, and all of the Enterprise 2.0 staff. Now it''s time to think about Enterprise 2.0 Boston! The Call for Papers for E2 Boston 2010 is open now through Friday, December 18th. This year we''ve partnered with Spigit, Inc. to create a brand new Call for Papers submissions, collaboration and voting experience in the true spirit of Enterprise 2.0.

You''ll find all of the following information about how to submit on the Call for Papers site but here''s some important items to remember.

First off, you''ll need to sign in and create an account to either make or review a submission. Submissions can be tagged with one of our pre-populated technology topics or a unique topic of the submitter''s choice. Technology areas include:

  • Strategy, Planning and Execution
  • Driving Adoption and Organizational Change
  • Social Tools and Applications for the Enterprise
  • Case Studies
  • Technology Foundations of Enterprise 2.0
  • Social Tools and Applications for the SMB
  • Social Media, Marketing and Customer Engagement

The form requires the usual information including a title, description, session format, and all pertinent speaker information. But this time around, all submissions made will be immediately viewable on a discussion forum, allowing for increased transparency in the Call for Papers process.

We encourage all who submit, all who plan on attending Enterprise 2.0 Conference Boston, and anyone interested in Enterprise 2.0, to review the submissions, and give us feedback. Submitters will be allowed to edit their submissions based on this feedback, and can also attach files with supporting materials to submissions. Inviting friends/colleagues to view submissions and publishing your submission to a variety of social networks is also made easy. Lastly, submissions are searchable by technology area, keyword or speaker.

The feedback of the community will be the primary criteria for selecting the sessions for Boston 2010. In addition to the wisdom of the crowd, creation of a balanced program for the different Technology Areas will be considered.There are three stages defining the selection process:Proposal Collection: This is the opening stage. All proposals start in this stage. Community feedback is encouraged.Community Vote: This is the second stage. After the Call for Papers closes on December 18th, the official voting period will begin in January 2010. Proposals will advance to the voting stage when they achieve certain levels of community feedback and approval.Selected Sessions: This will be the final stage. Advancing here is based on community votes and the approval of members of the Enterprise 2.0 Conference Advisory Board. Proposals with the most votes will be part of the E2 Boston 2010 Conference.

We want the Enterprise 2.0 community to collaborate, give us their most exciting ideas and experiences, and tell us what they want to see in Boston next year.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact mfarrell@techweb.com or (415) 947-6250. We're looking forward to reading your submissions and cultivating a meaningful discussion around the experiences and ideas that are the future of Enterprise 2.0.
