The deadline for the Creative Commons Technology Summit CFP has been
extended to Friday, May 1, 2009.

Full CFP:

Creative Commons is a non profit organization that builds tools that
help realize the full potential of the commons in the age of digital
networks. Launched at the end of 2002, Creative Commons licenses have
set the standard for sharing cultural works (i.e., "content", "media",
etc.), following in the footsteps of free and open source software.
Over the past five years we have also actively developed and
contributed to technologies that complement its public licenses, with
the aim of using software to enhance the discoverability and practical
[re]usability of content -- to help users manage content, as opposed
to software designed to help content manage users (i.e., DRM). In 2006
Creative Commons launched Science Commons, a project applying similar
principles to science and research. ccLearn was launched in 2007 to
help minimize barriers to sharing and reuse of educational materials.

Creative Commons holds its third technology summit on June 26, 2009 at
Aula Magna Lingotto - Politecnico di Torino in Turin, Italy. Creative
Commons Technology Summits are a forum for exploration of technology
built upon and enhanced by Creative Commons licenses and work in the
Semantic Web arena.
