[PLUG] USENIX LISA '10 Call for Participation Now Available

On behalf of the Program Committe, I would like to invite you to
contribute refereed papers, experience reports, and proposals for
invited talks and workshops to the 24th Large Installation System
Administration Conference (LISA '10). We're also looking for any ideas
you have for Guru Is In sessions, Work-in-Progress Reports, posters, and
training sessions.

The theme for LISA '10 is "Share your experiences, both real-world and
in research."

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

The annual LISA conference is the meeting place of choice for system and
network administrators and engineers. The conference serves as a venue
for a lively, diverse, and rich mix of technologists of all specialties
and levels of expertise. LISA is the place to exchange ideas, sharpen
old and new skills, learn new techniques, debate current and
controversial issues, and meet industry gurus, colleagues, and friends.

The conference's diverse group of participants are matched by an equally
broad spectrum of activities:

* NEW! LISA '10 will now include practice and experience reports. These
reports will offer valuable insight into completed projects in system

* A training program offering state-of-the-art tutorials from top
experts in their fields. Topics cover every level from introductory to
highly advanced.

* Refereed papers explore techniques, tools, theory, and case histories
that extend our understanding of system and network administration.

* Workshops, invited talks, and panels discuss important and timely
topics in depth and typically include lively and/or controversial
debates and audience interaction.

* Work-in-Progress Reports (WiPs) and poster sessions provide brief
looks ahead to next year's innovations.

* Share your results with a practice and experience report.
* Submit a paper.
* Propose a tutorial topic.
* Suggest an invited talk or panel discussion.
* Share your experience by leading a Guru Is In session.
* Create and lead a workshop.
* Present a Work-in-Progress Report (WiP) or submit a poster.
* Organize a Birds-of-a-Feather (BoF) session.
* Email an idea to the program chair:

LISA '10 takes place November 7-12, 2010, San Jose, CA.

We look forward to hearing from you!
