Dear all,

Historically, Berkeley Software Distribution (BSD) was one of the first
reimplementation of the UNIX AT&T platform and it later became one of
the key components of the Open Source movement. BSD has been the base
for many different operating systems, most notably FreeBSD, NetBSD,
OpenBSD, Darwin, and DragonFlyBSD, which are extensively used in many
different areas like embedded applications, workstations and large
Internet servers.

The 5th European BSD conference is the 2006 event held in European
continent where developers can meet, share new ideas and show off the
progress of their work.  It is also a great place for business players
to get in touch with the BSD products and the people behind them.

The conference comprises one day (Nov 10th) dedicated to tutorials and
two days (Nov 11-12th) for technical sessions.

*** Call For Tutorials ***

In the first day different tutorial sessions will be held focusing on

by speakers with a significative experience in their topics.

*** Call For Papers ***

The subsequent days will be dedicated to technical speeches about BSD
related topics. Authors are invited to submit original and innovative
