We are pleased to announce that the Call for Proposals (CFP) for the first Xen Project Developer Summit is now open! The event is being held in Edinburgh, UK from October 24-25.
All submissions need to be submitted by 11:55pm (BST) on September 6th.
The Xen Project Developer Summit will feature content for developers, integrators and power users of the Xen Project. We are looking for presentations related to development, such as development proposals, updates on feature development, project updates, etc. We are also looking for insight into best practices in deploying Xen at scale, case studies by Xen users and other topics that large scale users of Xen care about.
The program committee will be looking for presentations and workshops related to working with the Xen Project. Topics related to Xen Development include development proposals, updates on feature development, project updates, discussions and proposals on the architectural evolution of Xen, best practices of Xen development, studies and benchmarks of system characteristics such as performance/scalability/security/ease of use/power consumption, lessons learned, interfacing with other open source projects, making Xen easier to consume by distros, etc.
We are also interested in proposals that provide insight into best practices in deploying Xen, case studies by Xen users and other topics that large users and integrators of Xen care about. This includes everything from deploying Xen or its sister projects at scale, best practices for working with Xen, case studies by users of Xen, Xen benchmarks, tips and tricks in securing Xen based clouds, topics related to managing Xen based environments, open source projects that are related to Xen and deliver benefits to Xen users, 3rd party Xen integrations, etc. As a Xen user, a proposal that catches the developers attention, is your chance to spark a debate that will influence what is developed by the Xen Project.
In short, if it’s relevant to Xen development, integration and usage we are interested in what you might have to say.
Timeline and Deadlines
You can submit a proposal at any time for Xen Project Developer Summit. Please keep in mind that the deadline is September 6, 2013.
Presentations should be for 25 or 50 minutes. Chose the length of your submission based on the content that you have. Note that we have been overwhelmed with talk proposals in the past and have thus asked speakers to modify talks to fit into a shorter slot.
Not sure if you can afford the airfare and lodging to attend the summit? Please don’t let that stop you from submitting your best proposal. We may be making a number of travel sponsorships available for speakers who have useful information to share with the Xen Project community.
