Hello folks,

BSDCan 2008 will be held 16-17 May, 2008 in Ottawa at the University of
Ottawa. It will be preceded by two days of tutorials on 14-15 May 2008.

We are now accepting proposals for papers.

The papers should be written with a very strong technical content
bias. Papers and proposals of a business development or marketing
nature are not appropriate for this venue.

If you are doing something interesting with a BSD operating system,
please submit a proposal.  You might be developing a very complex
system using BSD as the foundation.  Perhaps you are helping others
and have a story to tell about how BSD played a role. People using
BSD as a platform for research are also encouraged to submit a
proposal. Perhaps you may want to write a paper such as:

   * How we manage a giant installation with respect to handling spam.
   * and/or sysadmin.
   * and/or networking.

Both users and developers are encouraged to share their experiences.

The schedule is:

  19 Dec 2007 Proposal acceptance begins
  19 Jan 2008 Proposal acceptance ends
  19 Feb 2008 Confirmation of accepted proposals
  19 Apr 2008 Formatted final papers must arrive no later than this date

NOTE: This is the schedule for formal papers. We are also accepting
submissions for less formal talks and presentations through the
same procedures.
