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 email@example.com in text, ps or pdf format.
