WORKSHOPS, WIPS, AND BOFS
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:
Please email your proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org. Workshop proposals are due May 10, 2005.
- Organizer name(s) and contact information
- Potential attendee profile
- An outline of potential topics
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 email@example.com or sign up the first day of the technical 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:
BoFs may also be scheduled at the conference.
