TechEd 2008 Abstract Deadline Extension

Just over a month ago, Simon Guest had posted a blog entry about the call for sessions for TechEd 2008. The original deadline was 31 December 2007, but I've just gotten confirmation that this deadline has been extended to 31 January 2008, so if you were thinking of submitting any abstracts, you still have some time to do it.

This year, the format for TechEd is different: It occurs over two weeks, the first being a developer-centric conference (June 3 - 6), and the latter being IT-centric (June 10 - 13). SQL Server topics can obviously be in both, so be sure to choose the correct conference before submitting your abstracts.

To get started, you need to first go to Use TEUS-Speakers as the access code, create a profile, and begin submitting topics.

And good luck!

Stupid question Peter, but I'm sure I should ask it.

I never received an invitation to submit an abstract from MS (for some reason I just can't get that MVP status). I should *not* use this site to submit something, correct?
