Submissions can fall into one of the following three categories.
We are inviting proposals for papers, to be presented during the Blender Conference 2008. We are accepting papers on a wide range of Blender development related topics, including:

For this year's conference, we again specifically look for case studies that address the theme of "Professional uses of Blender", and specifically examples of animation and the integration of Blender in the movie or game studio pipeline.
