AJAX, RIA, Rich Web Technologies and iPhone Developer Summit Call for Papers Deadline January 25, 2008

The leading RIA and Rich Web Technologies Conference to present the highest-caliber faculty and speakers ever!

Submit Your Speaking Proposal

It is a great time to be a front-end engineer! But is it easy yet to make Rich Internet Applications that easily go offline? Are developers better off using an RIA framework, a toolkit or just coding their own AJAX/JavaScript? Will JavaScript 2.0 be a success, or a dud? How can RIA apps be made secure? When will AJAX and RIA development finally be easy?

Submissions on these and dozens of other topics have already begun streaming in to AJAXWorld Conference & Expo 2008 East, being held in New York City on March 18-20, 2008.

The Call for Papers is as always a 100% online process, found here. You will find details of tracks at that link too.
