CONFERENCE OVERVIEWUSENIX, founded twenty-five years ago, is the Advanced Computing Systems Association. Over the past quarter-century, the USENIX Association's membership has grown from its original core of UNIX users to a broad community of developers, researchers, and users with interests ranging from embedded systems to Tcl/Tk, from object-oriented programming to network administration, and from Internet technologies and electronic commerce to using, managing, and researching Windows NT. The USENIX 2000 Annual Technical Conference seeks to bring together this broad community under a single roof to share the results of their latest and best work, find points of common interest and perspective, and develop new ideas that cross and break boundaries.
Bill Joy, Chief Scientist and co-founder of Sun Microsystems, Inc., will open the conference technical sessions with his keynote address.
The three-day technical session of the conference includes a track of refereed papers selected by the Program Committee; a track of Invited Talks by experts and leaders in the field; and FREENIX, a track of talks and paper presentation on freely available POSIX-based software and systems. Refereed papers are published in the Proceedings, which are provided to Technical Session attendees, along with materials from the Invited Talks and FREENIX presentations.
Three days of tutorials precede the technical sessions with practical tutorials on timely topics.
