Hi Again,
I just read the "fine print" and it looks like this year's event will not have a track devoted specifically to open source educational software... OSSIE (Open Source Software In Education) but there will plenty of places to tell the OLPC and Sugar Labs stories.  I also noticed that one of the links in my first message was not properly activated.  Hopefully the ones below will work for you.

> SCALE ANNOUNCEMENT: Call for Papers for Southern California Linux Expo 9x opens September 1st
> LOS ANGELES – Organizers of the Southern California Linux Expo 9x have announced that the Call for Papers for SCALE 9x opens Wednesday, Sept. 1, with five speaker tracks.
> With the continued growth of Open Source software in business, SCALE will address the need for system management knowledge by adding a speaker track focused on system administration.  Combined with the two specialized tracks -- Beginners and Developers -- and the two general interest tracks, SCALE 9x will have content for every attendee.
> “With a larger show and more opportunities for speakers, we’re looking for a cross-section of speakers that will coincide with the wide range of attendees expected for SCALE 9X,” said Shyam Kapadia, who chairs the SCALE speakers committee.
> Proposal abstracts are reviewed by a committee and are evaluated solely on merit. The closing date for the call for papers is Dec. 13, 2010, and organizers ask that the submission dates be strictly honored in order to provide the committee enough time to choose the best proposals.
> SCALE 9X will also  host tutorial sessions under a separate track. Those submitting presentations are asked to mention if the presentation is appropriate for a lab in the proposal. 
> Technical set up – including a microphone, overhead projector and a laptop running Linux – can be available, but presentations must be done in a non-proprietary format.
