BSDCan 2012 - call for papers (Updated)
Watching conference proceedings and publications like magazines,
I feel a certain lack of NetBSD presence. Even in events that
are BSD-friendly (EuroBSDcon, BSD Magazine come to mind).
So here's a friendly reminder to go out on the street
and preach the truth, as
posted by Dan Langille on netbsd-advocacy@:
You have two days left before the deadline!
``BSDCan 2012 will be held 11-12 May, 2012 in Ottawa at the University of
Ottawa. It will be preceded by two days of tutorials on 9-10 May.
NOTE: This will be Fri/Sat with tutorials on Wed/Thu.
We are now accepting proposals for talks.
The talks should be designed with a very strong technical content bias.
Proposals of a business development or marketing nature are not
appropriate for this venue.
If you are doing something interesting with a BSD operating system,
please submit a proposal. Whether you are developing a very complex
system using BSD as the foundation, or helping others and have a story
to tell about how BSD played a role, we want to hear about your
experience. People using BSD as a platform for research are also
encouraged to submit a proposal. Possible topics include:
From the BSDCan website, the Archives section will allow you to review
the wide variety of past BSDCan presentations as further examples.
- How we manage a giant installation with respect to handling spam.
- and/or sysadmin.
- and/or networking.
Both users and developers are encouraged to share their experiences.
The schedule is:
8 Jan 2012 Proposal acceptance begins
29 Jan 2012 Proposal acceptance ends
19 Feb 2012 Confirmation of accepted proposals
Instructions for submitting a proposal to BSDCan 2012 are available
The deadline for submissions has been extended to Tuesday 31 January.
