Linux.conf.au 2014 Systems Administration Miniconf
As part of the linux.conf.au conference in Perth, Australia in January 2014 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, social networks, and other relevant mailing lists. This is our 8th year at Linux.conf.au. To see presentations from our previous years, see the miniconf website http://sysadmin.miniconf.org/.
Presentation TopicsTopics for presentations could include (but are not limited to): Systems Administration, Virtualisation, Cloud computing, Devops, Monitoring, Dealing with "Bring Your Own Device", Configuration Management, Backups, Security, Troubleshooting, Buying Decisions, Identity Management, Two Factor Authentication, Web and Email management, Wiki, Clustering and High Availability, Log Management, Spam and Virus Filtering, VOIP, Ticketing systems, Bootstrapping and automated installation, Packaging and Provisioning, Keeping legacy systems functioning. 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.
