A reminder that the CFP for BSDCan 2019 closes on 19 January.
That's a Saturday, but in reality, we don't start closing access off
until Monday, so you have the whole weekend to get your submission in.
BSDCan 2019 will be held 17-18 (Fri-Sat) May, 2019 in Ottawa,
at the University of Ottawa. It will be preceded by two
days of tutorials on 15-16 May (Wed-Thu).
NOTE the change of month in 2019 to May
Also: do not miss out on the Goat BOF on Tuesday 14 May.
We are now accepting proposals for talks.
The talks should be designed with a very strong technical content bias.
Proposals of a business development or marketing nature are not
appropriate for this venue.
If you are doing something interesting with a BSD operating system,
please submit a proposal. Whether you are developing a very complex
system using BSD as the foundation, or helping others and have a story
to tell about how BSD played a role, we want to hear about your
experience. People using BSD as a platform for research are also
encouraged to submit a proposal. Possible topics include:
* How we manage a giant installation with respect to handling spam.
* and/or sysadmin.
* and/or networking.
* Cool new stuff in BSD
* Tell us about your project which runs on BSD
* other topics (see next paragraph)
From the BSDCan website, the Archives section will allow you to review
the wide variety of past BSDCan presentations as further examples.
Both users and developers are encouraged to share their experiences.
The schedule is:
1 Dec 2018 Proposal acceptance begins
19 Jan 2019 Proposal acceptance ends
19 Feb 2019 Confirmation of accepted proposals
