An Invitation from the Program Chairs
"Learn to take advantage of the unique and innovative methods that sysadmins from around the world are using to manage their large scale systems."
Dear System Administrator:
As technology advances at breakneck speed, it is increasingly difficult to stay current in the broadening field of systems administration. Join other members of the professional systems administration community for the 12th LISA Conference. LISA '98 features three days of tutorials, workshops, and three days of multiple tracks where you can learn to take advantage of the unique and innovative methods that sysadmins from around the world are using to manage their large scale systems.
The highly acclaimed LISA tutorial program spans the spectrum of sysadmin interests. There are tutorials geared for novice to advanced audiences. Pick and choose among the 36 tutorials offered over three days.
The LISA Refereed Papers Track features papers on topics ranging from security and networking through managing system configuration to new theories in self-managing systems. The Invited Talks Track has many engaging speakers discussing both emerging technological areas as well as information of immediate practical use. And, as usual, we will have the Guru is IN, Works-in-Progress and Birds-of-a-Feather Sessions. The Exhibition, with over 100 providers of sysadmin products and services, is larger than ever.
LISA '98 will be the first to include the "Practicum" track, which is an eclectic potpourri of highly pragmatic presentations. Co-Chair Rob Kolstad and his committee have selected speakers chosen for their expertise and outstanding speaking ability. This track promises to be a superb addition to the LISA tradition of excellence and communication.
Over the years, the participation at LISA has grown in both size and scope. Please join us for a great time in Boston on December 6 - 11, 1998 with tutorials, workshops, presentations, and camaraderie.
