Call for Presentations
Linux.conf.au 2011 Systems Administration Miniconf

The 2011 Call for Presentations is now closed. (A list of Accepted Presentations is now online.)





As part of the linux.conf.au conference in Brisbane, Australia in January 2011 we will be holding a one day mini conference oriented to Linux Systems Administration.

The organisers of the Systems Administration Miniconf would like to invite proposals for presentations to be delivered at the Miniconf. Please forward this CFP to your colleagues and other relevant mailing lists.

This is our 5th year at Linux.conf.au. To see presentations from our previous years, see the miniconf website http://sysadmin.miniconf.org/.

Presentation Topics

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

Systems Administration, Backups, Security, Troubleshooting, Buying Decisions, Virtualisation and Cloud Computing, DevOps, 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, packaging and provisioning.

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 majority of available timeslots to be 20 minutes long or less.

The 10-20 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 attendees a picture of what is happening in the "real world" and some understanding of how other sites work, as well as offer you a chance to get suggestions on other tools and practices that might help your site.

Submitting talks

Please note that in order to give a presentation or attend the miniconf you must be signed up for the main linux.conf.au conference. Presenting at the Miniconf does not entitle you to discounted or free registration at the main conference nor priority with registration. Unfortunately the Miniconf has no budget for sponsorship of speakers.

Submissions have now closed

Questions should be sent to:

lca2011 @ sysadmin.miniconf.org

Dates and Deadlines

To encourage early submissions priority (both of inclusion and scheduling) will be given to presentations submitted before the 20th of September.
