Submit a talk proposal for BlogTalk 2009, Social Software Conference in Korea this September! (Final Call)

Hello from BlogTalk 2009, the 6th International Conference on Social
Software.  BlogTalk Asia will be held in Jeju, Korea from 15-16
We hope that you can submit a proposal to speak at BlogTalk: the
deadline is the 31st July 2009.  A one-page abstract (less than 600
words) is required.
Why attend?
BlogTalk provides a unique interdisciplinary opportunity for academics,
developers and practitioners to come together and discuss social
software projects, ideas, research prototypes or success stories.
What is the structure?
As with previous events, we will have a mixture of peer-reviewed
presentations, keynote speakers, discussion panels and special sessions
(including one on the Korean Social Web).  Previous events in the series
have featured prominent speakers such as David Weinberger, Mena and Ben
Trott, Matt Mullenweg, Suw Charman, Danah Boyd, Salim Ismail and Nova
Why Jeju?
Jeju's temperate climate, natural scenery, and beaches make it a popular
tourist destination for both South Koreans and many visitors from Japan,
China, northern and southern Asia. The Cheonjeyeon and Cheonjiyeon
waterfalls, Mountain Halla, Hyeobje Cave, Hyeongje Island are popular
places for tourists. Jeju Island was a finalist in the new 'Seven
Wonders of Nature', and contains a Natural World Heritage Site (Jeju
Volcanic Island and Lava Tubes). In the conference venue (Jungmum Resort
Complex) and associated hotels, there are also many bars, casinos,
pools, etc.
Jeju is easily accessible from many parts of Asia, with flights to
Tokyo, Beijing, Osaka and Hong Kong.  You can also fly to Seoul and from
there take a one hour flight to Jeju.
We will have special hotel rates in top-class hotels at the conference
Also, BlogTalk will be held just before the Lift Asia event on the 17th
and 18th, so you have double the reason to attend!  There is a special
joint registration rate for both events.
