The Open Hardware Summit is now accepting submissions for proposed talks, breakout sessions and demos. The deadline is June 24th, 2011. Ayah writes:

The Open Hardware Summit (OHS) invites submissions for the second annual summit, to be held onSeptember 15, 2011 in New York City. The Open Hardware Summit is a venue to present, discuss, and learn about open hardware of all kinds. The summit examines open hardware and its relation to other issues, such as software, design, business, and law. We are seeking submissions for talks, breakout sessions, and demos from individuals and groups working with open hardware and related areas. Submissions are due by June 24, 2011. Notification of accepted proposals will happen by August 1st.

Since the first Open Hardware Summit in 2010, we have seen the open hardware movement continue to flourish. The Open-Source Hardware Definition was announced, the OSHW logo was selected by a popular vote, an open source oil spill cleaning robot got more than $33,000 in crowd funding, Google adopted the open hardware movement’s biggest success story, Arduino, as its platform and our very own keynote speaker, Limor Fried, was featured on the front page of Wired Magazine – to name a few. Needless to say, open hardware is getting BIG.

Topics of interest for the summit include, but are not limited to:

  • Lessons learned from past projects
  • Legal and intellectual property implications of open-source hardware
  • Means of supporting collaboration and community interaction
  • Manufacturing
  • Distributed development and its relationship to physical goods
  • Digital fabrication (e.g. laser cutters and 3D printers)
  • Software design tools (CAD / CAM)
  • DIY technology
  • Ways to share information about hardware that’s not captured in source files
  • Business models
  • Manufacturing on demand
  • Competition and collaboration
  • Sustainability of open hardware products (e.g. how to unmake things)
  • Industrial design
  • “open-washing” (green washing for open source)
  • Open-hardware in the enterprise
  • Specific product domains: e.g. science, agriculture, communications, medicine

And any other topic you think relates to openness and hardware. We want to hear all about it!

Lots more details on the OHS blog. This looks to be even bigger and better than last year — and last year wasAWESOME!

    Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on numerous websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be really appreciated!
