Just came across this on Steve Arnold’s weblog, Lucid Imagination is sponsoring an open source search conference in Boston, MA on October 7-8, 2010 at the Hyatt Harborside:
The first-ever conference focused on addressing the business and development aspects of open source search will take place October 7-8, 2010 at the Hyatt Harborside in Boston.
Dubbed Lucene Revolution due to the sponsor, Lucid Imagination, the commercial company dedicated to Apache Lucene technology. This inaugural event promises a full, forward-thinking agenda, creating opportunities for developers, technologists and business leaders to explore the benefits that open source enterprise search makes possible.
In addition to in-depth training provided by Lucid Imagination professionals, there will be two days of content rich talks and presentations by Lucene and Solr open source experts. Working on the program will be Stephen E. Arnold, author and consultant.
Those interested in learning more about the conference and submitting a proposal for a talk can navigate to http://lucenerevolution.com/. The deadline for submissions is June 23, 2010. Individuals are encouraged to submit proposals for papers and talks that focus on categories including enterprise case studies, cloud-based deployment of Lucene/Solr, large-scale search, and data integration.
The Lucene Revolution conference comes just after success of sold-out Apache Lucene EuroCon 2010 in Prague, also sponsored by Lucid Imagination, the single largest gathering of open source search developers to date.
