SCALE Fills Up

Orv Beach writes "All speaker and exhibitor slots for SCALE5x are now full. In addition, The Linux Expo of Southern California has announced two “mini-conferences” in conjunction with SCALE 5x:

The Open Source Health Care Summit
The Open Source Health Care summit will focus on the use of open-source software in the health care industry. The goal of this event is to foster an awareness of the availability of open-source options to medical organizations, private practices, and hospitals. For more information on the Summit, see http://socallinuxexpo.com/healthcare07/index.php, or contact healthcare@socallinuxexpo.org.

Women In Open Source
The goal of this event is to encourage women to use technology, open source and free software, and to explore the obstacles that women face in breaking into the technology industry. For more information on the WIOS conference, see http://socallinuxexpo.com/wios07/index.php, or contact gareth@socallinuxexpo.org.

Both mini-conferences are on Friday February 9, 2007 at the Westin LAX hotel.
