Although this is a Perl group I think there are quite a few people who
are Unix sysadmins or developers who would be interested in this
conference. So I thought I would send this on for anyone who is not on
the FLOSS UK / UKUUG mailing lists, this is the Call for Papers for
the FLOSS UK (previously known as UKUUG) Spring Conference 2012. It
will be held in the University of Edinburgh Informatics Forum so this
is an excellent opportunity Scotland-based Unix people to attend the
conference without the hassle or extra costs of travelling. If you are
interested in submitting a paper but unsure of what would be
acceptable feel free to contact me, Informatics staff regularly attend
the conference and present talks.

The FLOSS UK's annual Large Installation Systems Administration (LISA)
event will be held on 20th, 21st & 22nd March 2012 in Edinburgh

We are currently accepting talks; so if you are a systems
administrator, we want to hear from you. We are seeking papers
covering all aspects of systems and network administration, including:

security and audit
authentication and authorisation
backup and restore
data de-duplication
operating systems
network/cluster file systems
ethics and legislative compliance
storage solutions
databases and directory services
nomadic and wireless computing
cluster management
configuration management
scripting and task automation
benchmarking and performance tuning
virtualisation and system deployment using 'cloud' technology

If you have a novel solution to a problem, experience of a particular
application or hardware platform, tips and tricks for fellow systems
administrators, or a favourite tool you could talk about, please
submit a paper for consideration by the programme committee.
