Ubucon returns to SCaLE for the third year in a row!

Thanks to the resounding success for two years running, Ubucon returns 
to SCaLE[1] once again.  Ubucon will be held at SCaLE10X on Friday, 
January 20th, 2012.  There is a need for speakers on beginner topics.

An Ubucon[2] is an organized event for Ubuntu users that's halfway 
between an unconference and a convention.  The main focus is for Ubuntu 
users to get together and meet others, share ideas, and improve their 

We want to line up five speakers for this year's Ubucon.  We're looking 
for presentations on topics that would be of interest to casual and

The deadline for submissions is Monday, December 12th, 2011.  We'll 
notify selected speakers two weeks later, by Monday, December 26th, 2011.

In addition, we'll have a round of lightning talks at the end of the 
day, so if you want to talk but can't do it for 45 minutes, or just want 
to get a taste of sharing with others, you'll have an opportunity to 
tell us all about something awesome.
