The Berkeley Software Distributions (BSDs) represent one of the oldest and most vigorous streams of Open Source Development. Together, OpenBSD, FreeBSD, NetBSD, Darwin, and BSD/OS represent millions of servers and desktops. The BSDs have long been part of the backbones of the Internet, in everything from embedded applications to large server installations, and will soon be widely deployed on consumer desktops. If you want to develop cutting-edge network applications, then BSDCon is the place to be. Meet all the movers and shakers of the BSD community, and learn how you can use BSD as part of your enterprise-grade solutions.
This is the third BSDCon, but the first to be sponsored by the USENIX Association. Two days of tutorials will precede two days of technical sessions and a vendor exhibit. The combination of technical tracks, invited talks, tutorials, Birds-of-a-Feather sessions, and Work-in-Progress reports provides an opportunity for people of all experience levels to learn from BSD experts, professionals with real world experience, and industry leaders.
The BSDCon 2002 Program Committee invites you to contribute your ideas, proposals and papers for the invited talks program, refereed papers track, and Work-in-Progress Reports related to BSD-derived systems and the Open Source world.
Suggested topics and guidelines are now available at: http://www.usenix.org/events/bsdcon02/cfp/
Submissions are due August 27, 2001.
We look forward to seeing you in San Francisco in February 2002!
The 2002 BSDCon Conference is sponsored by
USENIX, the Advanced Computing Systems Association.
