LISA '10 Call for Participation
Workshops, Posters, and BoFs
One-day workshops are hands-on, participatory sessions where small groups of
system administrators have an opportunity to discuss a topic of common
interest. Workshops are not intended as tutorials and participants are expected
to have reasonable experience in the appropriate area, "enabling" discussions at a
peer level. However, attendees with less experience often find workshops useful
and are encouraged to discuss attendance with the workshop organizer.
A workshop proposal should include the following information:
Workshop proposals are due May 17, 2010. Please email your proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Organizer name(s) and contact information
- Potential attendee profile
- Outline of potential topics
Posters are an opportunity to present recent work that is not ready or not
appropriate for a refereed paper. The posters will be on display during the
conference, and fixed times will be advertised when authors should be present
to discuss their work with anyone who is interested. Posters provide an
excellent opportunity to make contact with other people who may be interested
in the same area. Student posters, practitioners sharing their experiences, and
submissions from open source communities are particularly welcome. Authors of
accepted refereed papers may also submit poster proposals to supplement the
presentation of the work described in their paper.
To submit a poster, please send a PDF file containing either a proposal of fewer than five (5) pages or no
more than ten (10) slides to Rudi van Drunen at email@example.com. Please include your name, your affiliation, and the title of your poster.
The deadline for submissions has been extended to October 22, 2010. If you would like a shepherd to assist you with your poster proposal, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org in advance of the deadline. If your poster is accepted, you might receive a recommendation for shepherding to prepare your final poster.
Completed posters will be required by the start of the conference. Poster presenters who would also like to give a short presentation may also register for a WiP as described below.
Work-in-Progress Reports (WiPs)
This year's program does include Work-in-Progress reports (WiPs). Please consider
participating in this session in which you are granted 5 minutes to share your
current project or an idea with the LISA crowd. Time slots can be scheduled on-site or in advance by emailing email@example.com.
Birds-of-a-Feather Sessions (BoFs)
Birds-of-a-Feather sessions (BoFs) are informal gatherings organized by attendees interested in a particular topic. BoFs will be held in the evening. BoFs may be scheduled in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. BoFs may also be scheduled at the conference.
