NYCBSDCon 2006 Call For Presentations

Contributed by marco on from the dept.

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.

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

* 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:

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 in either
text, ps, pdf or like format, accompanied with a clear abstract.

      I think about 8 hours or so by car. . . Have done the drive myself several times. There's also a train between New York and Montreal.

      We had a number of attendees from Montreal and the area last year, so I'm sure there are some carpooling opportunities around. . .
