EuroBSDCon is a conference for users and developers on BSD based systems. We

* Virtualizing BSD based systems
* Installing BSD system on your coffee machine
* File systems, networking, security, and general kernel
* Tools for monitoring, measuring, debugging, and optimizing BSD systems
* The science and art of open source programming
Extended abstract (two A4 pages) in English, with an outline of your proposed
talk, a few keywords and a bit about yourself should be sent to us by email at
[email protected] before June 1st 2008.
If you are interested in presenting a tutorial, please let us know.
Speakers attend the conference for free and we will reimburse speakers travel
and lodging if nobody else will pay for it. We will aim to finalize the
program and notify the selected speakers by July 1st 2008. All speakers will
be expected to produce a final paper and electronic files for the conference
web site by September 15th, 2008.
We will not waste money and trees on printed proceedings but will distribute
the conference material electronically and expect to receive your final slides
no later than 4 weeks before the conference. Please let us know if you want
to include other materials (articles, HOWTO etc). All papers should be
considered 'open source', and as such, non-disclosure agreements and other
limits will require us to return the paper.
If you want to give a short talk about recent developments, early projects or
a new idea not yet ready to be published, a ?Works In Progress? session can
be organized during the conference. We are particularly interested in
presentation of student work.
The language of the conference is English. If we can arrange it, all talks
will be videotaped (unless the speaker objects).
