EuroBSDCon is a conference for users and developers on BSD based systems. We are looking for papers about all aspects of BSD based operating systems especially if you can tell our audience something new about:

  • Products embedding BSD systems
  • Desktop computing with BSD systems
  • BSD based products, how, why, what
  • How you are reworking ports pkgsrc
  • What are the BSD developers working on now
  • Virtualizing BSD based systems
  • Installing BSD system on your coffee machine
  • File systems, networking, security, and general kernel hacking
  • Tools for monitoring, measuring, debugging, and optimizing BSD systems
  • The science and art of open source programming

Extended abstract (two A4 pages) in English, with an outline of your proposed talk, a few keywords and a bit about yourself should be sent to us by email at before June 1st 2008.

If you are interested in presenting a tutorial, please let us know.

Practical Information

Speakers attend the conference for free and we will reimburse speakers travel and lodging if nobody else will pay for it. We will aim to finalize the program and notify the selected speakers by July 1st 2008. All speakers will be expected to produce a final paper and electronic files for the conference web site by September 15th, 2008.

We will not waste money and trees on printed proceedings but will distribute the conference material electronically and expect to receive your final slides no later than 4 weeks before the conference. Please let us know if you want to include other materials (articles, HOWTO etc). All papers should be considered 'open source', and as such, non-disclosure agreements and other limits will require us to return the paper.

If you want to give a short talk about recent developments, early projects or a new idea not yet ready to be published, a "Works In Progress" session can be organized during the conference. We are particularly interested in presentation of student work.

The language of the conference is English. If we can arrange it, all talks will be videotaped (unless the speaker objects).
