The FOSE Team welcomes presentation proposals that provide meaningful, actionable insights about technology development for government IT decision makers. We are looking for presentations that detail use-case studies, lessons learned, or emerging trends that improve operational efficiency and ignite innovation within and across government agencies. We are also specifically seeking Local, Federal and State Government Employees with stories to tell about their IT experiences and successes.
It’s a vendor show so prepare accordingly.
Lots of swag, hire booth help at the local modeling agency, etc.
You can’t make a sale if you don’t get their attention.
Deadline for submissions: September 14, 2012.
Topic map based solutions should make a good showing against traditional ETL (Extra Tax and Labor) solutions.
No charge for use the expansion of ETL (it probably isn’t even original but if not, I don’t remember the source).
