We are still accepting session proposals for PUG Challenge Americas 2012,
the premiere face-to-face conference for Progress® users in the Americas!
With the holidays fast approaching many of you have requested a bit more
time -- so we have extended the deadline to January 15th!

As always, our goal is to deliver valuable and highly technical content to
people involved in developing, integrating, managing and improving Progress
applications. Presentations can include both Progress and non-Progress
technologies that support or complement Progress applications.

Your session can be organized as a detailed "How-To" presentation, a Case
Study demonstrating an implementation or a Best Practices illustration.
Regular session slots are 60 minutes long and should allow time for Q&A
following your presentation.

Workshops are 3 hours long and include lab-like exercises. Participants
will bring their own computers, but we will facilitate cloud deployment of
workshop materials.

Submissions for talks should include:

* Presenter name, company, job title, and contact information
* Title of talk
* Short summary
* Intended audience
* Outline
* Suggested tags appropriate to the talk (4GL, Database, SaaS,
Performance etc.)
* Speaker bio

The conference will be held May 6-9, 2012 in Westford, Massachusetts which
is easily reached from both Boston (BOS) and Manchester (MHT) airports. The
hotel is just minutes up the road from Progress Software's Bedford, MA
Headquarters.

Good Luck! We look forward to seeing many great proposals and working with
you to make a memorable experience. Please submit your proposals on or
before January 15th, 2012 to speakers@pugchallenge.org
