FOSS4G 2014 Community Voting Open through May 5th

Portland, OR, April 22, 2014 - What presentations do you want to see at FOSS4G?  Now is the time to tell us!  

The FOSS4G community at large can now read and score potential presentations.  The conference committee will use the aggregate scores from the community review process to help choose which presentations to accept, and to assign presentations to appropriately sized rooms.

The community review process is an important part of creating a conference that benefits and reflects the community. Your input is a significant part of what makes FOSS4G a great conference. Note that you do not need to be registered for the conference to vote. And remember, all presentations will be available online, so even if you are unable to attend, your vote matters.

You can vote now at: http://community-review.foss4g.org/.  

Please complete your voting by May 5th.
