Call for Presentations 2010 Systems Administration Miniconf

As part of the conference in Wellington, New Zealand in January 2010 we will be holding a 1 day mini conference orientated to Linux Systems Administration.

The organisers of the Systems Administration Miniconf would like to invite proposals for presentations to be delivered at the Miniconf.

Presentation Topics

Topics for presentations could include (but are not limited to)

Systems Administration, Backups, Security, Troubleshooting, Buying Decisions, Virtualisation, Enterprise Monitoring and Management, Identity Management, Web and Email management, Wiki, Clustering and High Availability, Log Management, Spam and Virus Filtering, VOIP, Ticketing systems, Bootstrapping and automated installation, Configuration Management and packaging.

We strongly welcome topics on best practice, new developments in systems administration and cutting edge techniques to better manage Linux hosts and environments.

Presentations should be of a technical nature and speakers should assume that members of the audience have at least a couple of years experience in Unix/Linux administration.

Format of Presentations

We are now seeking proposals for presentations at the mini-conference. We have openings for:

Please note, due to the single day available, we expect the vast majority of available timeslots to be 20 minutes long or less.

The 10-15 minute "How we do things" presentations are intended for people to talk about their sites. Information could include: Servers, talks, tools, people and roles, experiences, software, operating systems, monitoring, alerting, provisioning etc. The intent is to give other attendees a picture of what is happening in the "real world" and some understanding of how other sites work.
