LISA '13 Call for Participation opens

LISA '13

We're excited to announce the Call for Participation for our 27th Large Installation System Administration conference (LISA '13).

Extended abstracts, papers, experience reports, and proposals for talks, workshops, and tutorials due: Thursday, April 30, 2013, 11:59 p.m. PDT

If you haven't attended LISA before, be sure to check out papers and videos from past LISA events. USENIX members help support open access to conference papers and videos of paper presentations.

New in 2013! LISA Labs: New this year is a "hack space" available for informal mini-presentations by seasoned professionals, participation in live experiments, tutoring, and mentoring. This will bring a hands-on component to the conference, where attendees can investigate new technologies, apply what they have learned, and interact with other attendees in a participatory technical setting.
