BSDCon 2002
February 11-14, 2002
Cathedral Hill Hotel
San Francisco, CA. USA

The premier conference for the BSD community!

The Berkeley Software Distributions (BSDs) represent one of the 
oldest and most vigorous streams of Open Source Development. 
Together, OpenBSD, FreeBSD, NetBSD, Darwin, and BSD/OS represent 
millions of servers and desktops. The BSDs have long been part of the 
backbones of the Internet, in everything from embedded applications 
to large server installations, and will soon be widely deployed on 
consumer desktops. If you want to develop cutting-edge network 
applications, then BSDCon is the place to be. Meet all the movers and 
shakers of the BSD community, and learn how you can use BSD as part 
of your enterprise-grade solutions.

This is the third BSDCon, but the first to be sponsored by the USENIX 
Association. Two days of tutorials will precede two days of technical 
sessions and a vendor exhibit. The combination of technical tracks, 
invited talks, tutorials, Birds-of-a-Feather sessions, and 
Work-in-Progress reports provides an opportunity for people of all 
experience levels to learn from BSD experts, professionals with real 
world experience, and industry leaders.

The BSDCon 2002 Program Committee invites you to contribute your 
ideas, proposals and papers for the invited talks program, refereed 
papers track, and Work-in-Progress Reports related to BSD-derived 
systems and the Open Source world.

Suggested topics and guidelines are now available at:

Submissions are due August 27, 2001.

We look forward to seeing you in San Francisco in February 2002!


Sam Leffler, Program Chair
