 NYCBSDCon 2006 Call For Presentations

Continuing on the success of last year, New York City BSD Conference (NYCBSDCon) is the main technical conference on the East Coast for the BSD community to get together to share and gain knowledge, to network with like-minded people, and to have fun. This event is organized by members of the New York City *BSD Users Group (NYC*BUG).

The NYCBSDCon program committee is accepting submissions for imaginative, embryonic and energizing presentations surrounding the BSD operating systems. We are looking to attract a wide range of speakers and attendees; therefore, topics of interest range from the esoteric to development to practical, everyday sysadmin life.

 (Submitted by Brad Schonhorst Mon Jul 24, 2006 )

Topics of interest for the NYCBSDCon 2006 include, but are not limited to:

* Using the Andrew File System (AFS) in production
* Large data management (large RAID, NAS, SAN, etc...)
* Hands on Kerberos in enterprise environments
* Network, server, and application security best practices
* Network, server, and application monitoring
* Patch management in large installations

For a recent discussion of topics, see our mailing list thread: http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.org.user-groups.bsd.nycbug/3738/focus=3749

Each talk is expected to be 45-50 minutes. Presenters will have audio/visual and network connectivity.

Abstracts for presentations are due August 15, 2006.

Authors of accepted submissions should be able to provide the full presentation for publication on the NYCBSDCon website. Further instructions will follow the review process. Submissions accompanied by a non-disclosure agreement or a product advertisement will be rejected.

Abstract submissions should be emailed to cfp@nycbsdcon.org in either text, ps, pdf or like format, accompanied with a clear abstract.
