The organizers of the Open Hardware Summit are looking for people to speak and share ideas at their second annual conference. Here's a quote from Alicia Gibb, cochair of the summit:

Since the first Open Hardware Summit in 2010, we have seen the open-hardware movement continue to flourish. For instance, the Open-Source Hardware Definition was announced, the OSHW logo was selected by 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.

Visit the OSHW site for details on how to submit your idea for a presentation, demo, or workshop. The deadline to submit is June 24, 2011. The summit will take place on September 15th in New York City.
