Staying true to its predecessor “MeeGo”, the first Tizen Conference has been announced for May 7-9 at the Hyatt Regency in San Francisco. This is the same venue that the MeeGo Conference took place in May 23-25 2011.

So now the call for papers and registration has started and I encourage all to step forward:

We’re looking forward to seeing you at the Tizen conference on May 7-9, 2012, at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco.

We are encouraging Tizen developers, app developers, platform designers, operators, OEMs, hardware vendors, software vendors, open-source enthusiasts, and anyone engaged in Tizen to contribute and participate in the call for papers (CFP). We are inviting proposals for presentations in a wide variety of areas:

  • Application development and deployment
  • Device/Product development
  • Platform development
  • Tizen project, process, and progress
  • We welcome submissions on any other Tizen related topics. Be creative. The program committee will look at each submission to create a vibrant and interesting conference.
