      The O'Reilly Peer-to-Peer and Web Services Conference
      Omni Shoreham Hotel, Washington, DC
      September 17-20, 2001

      PROPOSALS DUE: April 2, 2001


      O'Reilly & Associates is pleased to announce the O'Reilly Peer-to-Peer and
      Web Services conference, an event exploring the technical, business, and
      legal dimensions of the fast-growing Peer-to-Peer and Web Services spaces.

      Individuals and companies interested in making presentations, giving a
      tutorial, or participating in panel discussions are invited to submit


      Because the Peer-to-Peer and Web Services spaces are still relatively
      unformed, we're casting the net widely. Any innovative application that
      harnesses the power of distributed computers, users, services, or devices,
      and the technical, business, or legal issues raised by such applications,
      are appropriate subjects for this conference.

      While the conference will consist of various tracks informed by the subject
      matter of the submissions, presentations are expected to lean more toward
      the technical or business/legal side. Technical presentations should be of
      interest to developers and administrators of Internet applications and
      infrastructure. Business/legal focused presentations should appeal to
      entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, technical strategists, lawmakers and


      Proposed talks should be 20, 30, or 60 minutes long. If you are interested
      in participating in or moderating panel discussions or otherwise
      contributing to the conference, please do make this known along with your
      preferred technical or business slant. If you have an idea for a
      particularly provocative group of panelists that you'd love to see square
      off, feel free to send in your suggestions.


      Lightning talks give you a whirlwind tour of companies, projects (both
      completed and not), research, experiments, and interesting ideas in the
      Peer-to-Peer and Web Services spaces. Each Lightning Talk session gives a
      dozen presenters an opportunity to give a 5-minute elevator pitch.

      There are three Lightning Talk tracks:

      * Technical
      * Business
      * "Wobbly Bits"

      The last track is a space for unfinished, unpolished, possibly abandoned,
      in-need-of-help, and other "wobbly" projects. Presenters should talk about
      what they've learned, what they've solved or overcome, ongoing issues and
      tribulations, the current state of their project, what bits are needed, and
      so on.

      Sessions will be wrapped up with a panel discussion.

      Presentations should be informative, creative, and/or entertaining.
