NYCBSDCon 2008 Call For Presentations

Continuing on the success of 2005 and 2006, New York City BSD Conference
(NYCBSDCon) is the main technical conference on the US East Coast for
the BSD community to get together to share and gain knowledge, to
network with like-minded people, and to have fun.  This event is
organized by members of the New York City *BSD Users Group (NYC*BUG).

The NYCBSDCon program committee is accepting submissions for
imaginative, embryonic and energizing presentations surrounding the BSD
operating systems.  We are looking to attract a wide range of speakers
and attendees; therefore, topics of interest range from the esoteric to
development to practical, everyday sysadmin life.  Of course, original
topics are preferred in most cases.

Each talk is expected to be 45-50 minutes, including a few minutes for
questions and answers if the speaker wishes - potentially recorded.
Presenters will have audio/visual and network connectivity.

Abstracts for presentations are due July 15, 2008.

Authors of accepted submissions should be able to provide the full
presentation for publication on NYCBSDCon sponsored mediums.  Further
instructions will follow notification of acceptance.  Submissions
accompanied by a non-disclosure agreement or a product advertisement
will be rejected.

Abstract submissions should be emailed to in text, ps
or pdf format.

it is too early to guarantee anything at this point.
