OpenCON 2007 // Call for Papers

Contributed by merdely on from the con-dola dept.

The OpenCON organizers write:

OpenCON is the only conference fully dedicated to OpenBSD. Last year edition was a great success and featured also the party for OpenBSD 10th birthday, with project leader Theo de Raadt and a lot of developers. See the OpenCON website for more information.

The OpenCON program committee is inviting speakers to submit innovative, original, and interesting talks on apps, architecture, implementation, performance and security of OpenBSD. Speeches and slides must be in english.

Topics of interest for OpenCON 2007 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 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.

To submit your proposal fill in the dedicated form.

As usual the conference will be in Venice, and this year we plan to have one additional day for tutorials:

  • 30 November 2007 - tutorial day
  • 1-2 December 2007 - conference

P.S. We are still looking for sponsors. HELP! Please spread the word among your friends, OpenBSD friendly companies, ISPs that offer OpenBSD servers for rent or hosting, or any big company that you think should sponsor the event. Don't wait, do it now. :)

Hope to see everyone there in Venice.
