Call for Papers

UKUUG’s annual Large Installation Systems Administration (LISA) conference
will take place in Manchester from 23-25 March 2009.

This is the UK’s only conference aimed specifically at systems and network
administrators. It attracts a large number of professionals from sites of all
shapes and sizes. As well as the technical talks, the conference provides a
friendly environment for delegates to meet, learn, and enjoy lively debate on
a host of subjects.

Tutorial

The conference will be preceded by a tutorial or extended workshop. Recent
past conferences have included sessions on: Perl for Systems Administrators;
IPv6; Linux HA; Perl 6; Samba and Kerberos.

If you would like to offer a tutorial that might interest our target audience,
please submit a proposal by email to spring2010@ukuug.org

Conference

We are currently accepting proposals for talks; so if you are a systems
administrator or developer, we want to hear from you. We are seeking papers
covering all aspects of systems and network administration, including:

security and audit
authentication and authorisation
operating systems
ethics and legislative compliance
storage solutions
network file systems
databases and directory services
nomadic and wireless computing
benchmarking and performance tuning

cluster management

If you have a novel solution to a problem, experience of a particular
application or hardware platform, tips and tricks for fellow systems
administrators, or a favourite tool you could talk about, please submit a
paper for consideration by the programme committee.

Talks should include a high level of technical content and not involve sales
pitches.
