[PLUG] USENIX LISA '11 Registration Now Open: Linux, DevOps, Enterprise, and More

We invite you to join us in Boston, MA, December 4-9, 2011, for the 25th
Large Installation System Administration Conference.

LISA '11 will break out the time machine and take you on a journey of
system administration through the years via top-notch training,
innovative research, Practice and Experience Reports, and that
all-important face time with others confronting the same challenges you
battle everyday.

LISA '11 opens with in-person training from the industry's top
instructors including:
* Mark Burgess on Configuration Management Solutions with Cfengine 3
* Nan Liu on Puppet
* Shumon Huque on Using and Migrating to IPv6

The 2011 training program includes over 45 classes and we're again
offering series of classes focusing on some of the most important topics
you'll encounter:

* The Virtualization Series offers both new and repeat classes that
provide the latest virtualization information by instructors such as
John Arrasjid and Gerald Carter.

* The Linux Security and Administration Series offers in-depth Linux
training by experts including Ted Ts'o and Rik Farrow.

* The SuperSysadmin Series showcases techniques for time and project
management, as well as other key skills to take your career to the
next level. Expert instructors include Mike Ciavarella and Carolyn

Take anywhere from 1 to 6 full days of training and create the
curriculum that meets your needs.

The technical program takes on this year's central theme of DevOps and
builds on it with practical information on a variety of key topics, such
as the Keynote Address on "The DevOps Transformation" by Ben Rockwood,
and Susan Landau's invited talk on "Surveillance or Security? The Risks
Posed by New Wiretapping Technologies."

Plus so much more:
*The latest research is showcased in the paper presentations, poster
sessions, and Work-in-Progress Reports (WiPs).

* The Practice and Experience Reports give you real-life experiences on
topics ranging from configuration management to security.

* The Guru Is In sessions, led by experts such as David Nalley on cloud
computing and Aaron Peterson on Chef, allow you to pose your toughest
questions and get answers.

* The Vendor Exhibition provides insight into new products and services
and a look at who is hiring.

* Finally, the "hallway track" offers ample opportunity to meet and
mingle with colleagues and industry leaders during breaks, BoFs, and
other social activities.
