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!
