Next Monday (January 10) is the deadline for making a speaking proposal to the 2011 Semantic Technology Conference. You can start the submission process here.

I’ll reiterate my invitation from a few weeks ago, inviting everyone who has business and/or technical experience working with semantic technologies to put yourself forward and share your expertise. We want – in fact we NEED – your first-hand stories and lessons. We need stories from all industries, in any application area, and from the largest to the smallest scale. We’ve received lots of terrific speaking proposals thus far, but there’s plenty of room left for you and your presentation.

If selected, you and your work will be exposed to the richly diverse group of individuals and organizations that SemTech brings together each year. Here for example is a small sample of the organizations who attended SemTech in 2010:
