[libvirt] KVM Forum 2013 Call for Participation



=================================================================
KVM Forum 2013: Call For Participation
October 21-23, 2013 - Edinburgh International Conference Centre - Edinburgh, UK

(All submissions must be received before midnight July 21, 2013)
=================================================================

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.  The oVirt Workshop will run in parallel with the
KVM Forum again, 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 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: July 21, 2013
Notification: August 1, 2013

Please submit a short abstract (~150 words) describing your presentation

the proposal type -- one of:

- birds of a feather (BOF) session

Submit your proposal here:

http://events.linuxfoundation.org/cfp

You will receive a notification whether or not your presentation proposal
was accepted by Aug 1st.

END-USER COLLABORATION

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.

BOF SESSION

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.

HOTEL / TRAVEL

The KVM Forum 2013 will be held in Edinburgh, UK at the Edinburgh
International Conference Centre.
