[AsiaBSDCon 2010]: March 11-14, 2010, Tokyo - Call for Papers
The AsiaBSDCon 2010 Program Committee is happy to announce a Call for Papers. "The conference is for anyone developing, deploying and using systems based on FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, DragonFlyBSD, Darwin and MacOS X. AsiaBSDCon is a technical conference and aims to collect the best technical papers and presentations available to ensure that the latest developments in our open source community are shared with the widest possible audience."
Read on to find out why it's a great conference to attend:
If you are living in Asia and are interested in attending a BSD conference, this is the one to attend. Besides the conference, Tokyo is a great city for food, shopping, unique Asian culture and held at a very special time of the year where the country comes alive with cherry blossoms.
I've always been impressed with the selection of speakers and quality of papers presented. Last year, Theo was a plenary speaker along with Sendmail's Eric Allman. I really enjoyed each of their talks. In fact, every year that I attend, I find so many interesting talks and papers and get to meet BSD legends like Dr. Marshal Kirk McKusick and Professor Jun Murai.
Even if you are not planning on submitting a paper, I would highly recommend this conference. It's a lot of fun with interesting, congenial and amiable folk that love to share their work and ideas for all to benefit from and enjoy.
Good luck to those submitting papers and for everyone else who can make it, I look forward to meeting you.
