The Plone Foundation is soliciting proposals for hosting the 2016 Plone Conference. The selection process is beginning in plenty of time this year in order to allow final selection of the conference venue to occur during the 2015 Plone Conference.
The extended timeline will allow groups and organizations interested in hosting Plone Conference 2016 (or beyond) to work with the team in Bucharest during this year's conference in October getting hands on experience.
The Plone Foundation will accept proposals from September 1st to September 28th. The Foundation Board of Directors will review proposals and open those that are viable for voting by Foundation membership between October 10th and October 14th. The winning proposal will be announced at the end of Plone Conference 2015 in Bucharest, Romania
The Plone Conference 2016 Call for Proposals, including the full schedule for the process and in-depth requirements for hosting it, can be found at:
The annual Plone Conference brings together users, integrators, developers, designers and other interested folk from throughout the world for a week of training, talks and sprinting.
Plone conferences are also an expression of that community spirit: they are organized by a company, usergroup or other entity with ties to and a history with the Plone community, and are in essence not for profit events.
