[libvirt] Reminder: KVM Forum 2012 Call For Participation

Just a reminder, the CFP ends this Friday.

KVM Forum 2012: Call For Participation
November 7-9, 2012 - Hotel Fira Palace - Barcelona, Spain

(All submissions must be received before midnight Aug 31st, 2012)

KVM is an industry leading open source hypervisor that provides
an ideal platform for datacenter virtualization, virtual desktop
infrastructure, and cloud computing.  Once again, it's time to bring
together the community of developers and users that define the KVM
ecosystem for our annual technical conference.  We will discuss the
current state of affairs and plan for the future of KVM, its surrounding
infrastructure, and management tools.  We are also excited to announce
the oVirt Workshop will run in parallel with the KVM Forum, bringing in
a community focused on enterprise datacenter virtualization management
built on KVM.  For topics which overlap we will have shared sessions.
So mark your calendar and join us in advancing KVM.


Once again we are colocated with The Linux Foundation's LinuxCon,
Based on feedback from last year, this time it's LinuxCon Europe!
KVM Forum attendees will be able to attend oVirt Workshop sessions and
are eligible to attend LinuxCon Europe for a discounted rate.

Abstracts due: Aug 31st, 2012
Notification: Sep 14th, 2012

Please submit a short abstract (~150 words) describing your presentation
proposal.  In your submission please note how long your talk will take.
Slots vary in length up to 45 minutes.  Also include in your proposal
the proposal type -- one of:

- technical talk
- end-user talk
- birds of a feather (BOF) session

Submit your proposal here:


You will receive a notification whether or not your presentation proposal
was accepted by Sep 14th.


One of the big challenges as developers is to know what, where and how
people actually use our software.  We will reserve a few slots for end
users talking about their deployment challenges and achievements.

If you are using KVM in production you are encouraged submit a speaking
proposal.  Simply mark it as an end-user collaboration proposal.  As an
end user, this is a unique opportunity to get your input to developers.


We will reserve some slots in the evening after the main conference
tracks, for birds of a feather (BOF) sessions. These sessions will be
less formal than presentation tracks and targetted for people who would
like to discuss specific issues with other developers and/or users.
If you are interested in getting developers and/or uses together to
discuss a specific problem, please submit a BOF proposal.


In addition to submitted talks we will also have some room for lightning
talks. These are short (5 minute) discussions to highlight new work or
ideas that aren't complete enough to warrant a full presentation slot.
Lightning talk submissions and scheduling will be handled on-site at
KVM Forum.


The KVM Forum 2012 will be held in Barcelona, Spain at the Hotel Fira Palace.


Thank you for your interest in KVM.  We're looking forward to your
submissions and seeing you at the KVM Forum 2012 in November!
