LISA '04: 18th Large Installation System Administration Conference
"System Administration Reality--Automation, Configuration, and Users"
November 14-19, 2004, Atlanta, Georgia, USA

Dear Colleague

I am writing on behalf of the program committee to remind you that the LISA '04 Call for Participation deadline is quickly approaching. Please submit your ideas by April 20, 2004. We invite you to contribute papers and proposals for the technical session's refereed papers track, invited talks, panels, Guru Is In sessions, and Work-in-Progress reports.

The Call for Participation with submission guidelines and sample topics can be found on the USENIX Web site at

The annual LISA conference is the meeting place of choice for system, network, security, and other computing administrators. Administrators of all specialties and levels of expertise meet at LISA to exchange ideas, sharpen skills, learn new techniques, debate current issues, and meet colleagues and friends.

People representing every work assignment from the full-time position at a large site to the part-time one at a small shop come to LISA from over 30 countries, bringing divergent backgrounds and experience levels to the conference dedicated to them. System and network administrators from environments as diverse as academia, large corporations and small businesses, government organizations, and research sites find LISA to be The Place to go for training, education, networking, and interacting with their peers.

The conference's diverse group of participants is matched by an equally broad spectrum of activities:

* Training sessions for both beginners and experienced attendees cover many administrative topics ranging from basic administrative procedures to using cutting-edge technologies.

* Technical sessions present the latest developments and ideas related to system and network administration.

* Invited talks and panels discuss important and timely topics and often spark lively debates and conversation.

* Work-in-progress reports (WiPs) provide brief peeks at next year's innovations.

* Submit an extended abstract for a refereed paper.
* Suggest an invited talk speaker or a panel discussion topic.
* Share your experience by leading a Guru Is In session.
* Propose a tutorial topic.
* Organize or suggest a Birds-of-a-Feather (BoF) session.
* Email an idea to the chair.

Submissions due: April 20, 2004
Notification to authors: May 2004
Final papers due: September 7, 2004
Submission guidelines and more information can be found at

We look forward to hearing from you!
On behalf of the LISA '04 Program Committee,
