One-day workshops are hands-on, participatory, interactive sessions where small groups of system administrators have discussions ranging from highly detailed to high-level. The primary goal of workshops is to provide a forum for system administrators to define and develop a given topic in depth. Topics that develop into a community with mailing lists and yearly workshops are especially desirable. Previously successful workshops have focused on configuration management, system administration education, and AFS.

A workshop proposal should include the following information:

  • Title
  • Objective
  • Organizer name(s) and contact information
  • Potential attendee profile
  • An outline of potential topics
Please email your proposal to Workshop proposals are due May 10, 2005.

Work-in-Progress Reports
A Work-in-Progress report (WiP) is a very short presentation about work you are currently undertaking. It is a great way to poll the LISA audience for feedback and interest. We are particularly interested in presentations of student work. To schedule your short report, send email to or sign up the first day of the technical sessions.

Birds-of-a-Feather Sessions
Birds-of-a-Feather sessions (BoFs) are very informal gatherings organized by attendees interested in a particular topic.

BoFs are held Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings. BoFs may be scheduled in advance by telephone or email:

Tel.: +1.510.528.8649

BoFs may also be scheduled at the conference.
