[PLUG] Update from the LISA '08 Program Chair

Progress continues on planning for the LISA '08 conference. I'm
excited to announce that representatives from the the U.S. Central
Intelligence Agency have agreed to deliver the keynote address. Some
invited talks submissions have already been received and
acknowledged. Inquiries are coming in about the paper submission
process and the refereed paper submission Web form will be open soon.

Deadlines for paper and invited talk submissions are approaching in May.
If you are thinking about submitting content for this year, now is the
time to get organized and go for it.

The quality of the conference depends in large part on the quantity
and quality of content submitted by our community. I have all too
often heard people tell me that they think they are doing
interesting work, but are gun-shy about submitting. They don't know
if it meets the "LISA standard" or are not sure if anyone else is
interested in their niche. As the Program Chair of this year's
conference, I encourage folks to *not* self-censor: be brave and
submit your work. The LISA '08 organizers are here to help you with
the content and presentation. Please email if
you would like help getting your paper ready for submission.

Important Deadlines Approaching:
-- Extended abstract and paper submissions: May 8, 2008
-- Invited talk and workshop proposals: May 20, 2008
-- Guru Is In and Hit the Ground Running proposals: May 31, 2008
-- Poster proposals: July 16, 2008

Finally, USENIX offers discounts for organizations sending 5 or more
employees to LISA. Please note this if you need to lobby your employer
to allow you to attend.

The Call for Participation with submission guidelines and sample topics
can be found on the USENIX Web site at

We look forward to hearing from you!

On behalf of the LISA '08 organizers,

Mario Obejas, Raytheon
LISA '08 Program Chair
