OpenCON 2006 - Call for Papers

Contributed by mbalmer on from the lasciate-ogni-speranza-voi-che-entrate dept.

OpenCON is the first european conference entirely dedicated to OpenBSD. The third OpenCON conference will take place in Mestre/Venice, Italy, on December 2-3, 2006. Some OpenBSD developers have already confirmed their attendance. It will be possible to follow many speeches, use the conference LAN, speak with other OpenBSD-enthusiasts and, of course, share any kind of knowledge. For more information visit the conference website: www.opencon.org or write us at: info@openbeer.it. OpenCON is THE OPENBSD EVENT IN EUROPE. Since it's inception in 2004, OpenBSD developers like Henning Brauer, Uwe Stuehler, Marc Balmer, Wim Vandeputte and many more enjoyed the friendly yet professional athmosphere.

The Call for Papers

The OpenCON program committee is inviting speakers to submit innovative original and interesting speeches on the applications, architecture, implementation, performance and security of the OpenBSD operating system. The speeches and slides must be in english. Topics of interest for the OpenCON Conference 2006 include, but are not limited to:

  • kernel hacking
  • embedded application development and deployment
  • device drivers
  • security and safe coding practices
  • system administration: techniques and tools of the trade
  • operational and economic aspects

The extended abstract should explain clearly what are the topics and the aims of the speech. Submissions accompanied by a non-disclosure agreement will be rejected.

Authors of accepted submissions have to provide a full paper for publication in the conference proceedings and allow the organizers to publish the results in the printed proceedings and on the conference web site. Instructions to authors will be available on the conference web site.

To submit your proposal, please fill in the web form at http://www.opencon.org/cfp-proposal.php

We hope to see you at OpenCON 2006 in Mestre/Venice!

    Let me be the first one to add that this is the coolest conference in Europe, as must-attend event.

      Having attended this conference since it was first held in 2004, I can only say there is nothing to add to Wims statement. There was only one conference that I am aware of that was even better organized ;-) But that's the past and now we all focus on OpenCON 2006.

      What? An OpenBSD event with swiss people around but only a swiss army knife without a cork screw? Incredible!

        Unconceivable!

        I always have three knives, a bottle opener and a corkscrew on me. You know... for emergencies!

          being Swiss, I - of course - showed them how to pull a cork with a simple knive. It took the Irish half an hour, however. So don't blame the Swiss, we were the ones to rescue the moment ;)

            I bet you had your SAK EE (Swiss Army Knife Enterprise Edition) right in your pocket ;-)

            Anyways -- only an OpenBottle is a GoodBottle.

            BTW: did you notice that SAKs with corkscrews have that little mini screwdriver inlet? Secure by default.

            I'm curious, how exactly does one go about doing this? I've attempted to do so on far more occasions than I care to recall (maybe they've just blacked out...), but never managed to do it without cutting myself or leaving bits of cork in the wine, or most often both.

          And a compiler?

        A Leatherman tool is also invaluable for cake cutting purposes. It is a pain to get rid of chocolate crema out of it afterwards... :)
