EuroBSDCon 2011 Call for Proposals
EuroBSDCon is a conference for users and developers on BSD based
systems. In October 2011, the tenth edition of the conference is being
held in Maarssen near Utrecht, The Netherlands. The conference is
for anyone developing, deploying and using systems based on FreeBSD,
NetBSD, OpenBSD, DragonFlyBSD, or any other 4.4BSD derived operating
system. EuroBSDCon is a technical conference and aims to collect the
best technical papers and presentations available to ensure that the
latest developments in our open source community are shared with the
widest possible audience.

Final papers due.
How to Submit
The initial submission must be in the form of a complete paper or
an extended abstract between 2 and 12 pages long (A4 paper) in
English. While there is no particular format for the abstract,
submissions which are much beyond this form such as too long or too
short one will be rejected. Submissions should be written from a
strong technical background and should clearly demonstrate that:
o There is a significant problem being solved or a real world
experience being demonstrated.
o There is active work being done.
o There is enough progress to make a complete written submission.
o There is data proving either the success or failure of any claims.
The technical program committee are interested in all technical
areas which relate to the BSDs, including User Applications, Novel
Interfaces, Networking, Embedded Systems, Security, Device Support
and systems both inside and outside of the kernel.
Abstracts and papers should be submitted electronically in PDF
format via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition to the
paper itself, the email should include (an in-lined form or as an
attachment) the following information in plain text:
Abstract (150-250 words)
Names and affiliations of the authors
Contact email address
Author Biography (50-100 words)
If you have questions or encounter problems, please send electronic
mail to the program committee at email@example.com.
Include appropriate references to establish that you are familiar
with related work, and where possible, provide detailed data to
establish that you have a working implementation or measurement
tool. Submissions will be judged on the quality of the written
submission and whether or not the work is of interest to the
community. Business development or marketing pieces are not
appropriate for submission.
Proposals should be new papers, not previously read at other
conferences. Likewise, accepted papers should not be presented at
other conferences after EuroBSDCon without new art. All papers are
be considered 'open source' meaning that all submissions may be
made available to the community by the program conference during
and after the conference.
All of the authors will be notified by June 13, 2011. All accepted
submissions will be expected to produce a final paper by July 11,
2011 for publication on the conference web site. The final paper
should describe work that has been completed as of the time of their
submission. If necessary, members of the program committee will
help shepherd authors through the writing process prior to final
acceptance for publication in the proceedings.

content of the conference program, contact the program committee
These presentations and discussions highlight the hottest new
developments in the BSD world as well as real world experiences.
These talks may range from highly technical to survey-style
presentations and range over many timely and interesting topics.
We welcome suggestions for topics and request proposals for particular
talks. In your proposal state the main focus, including a brief
outline, and be sure to emphasize why your topic is of interest to
the BSD community. Please submit all proposals and suggestions by
email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
EuroBSDCon offers full and half-day tutorials on a range of topics
from experts in the BSD community. Topics range from how the kernel
works to administering and securing BSD systems.
To provide the best possible tutorial offerings, we continually
solicit proposals for new tutorials. If you are interested in
presenting a tutorial, please send email to email@example.com.
We are considering a vendor exhibits area. If you are a vendor who is
interested in exhibiting please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Birds-of-a-Feather sessions (BoFs) are very informal gatherings
organized by attendees and for attendees interested in a particular
topic. BoFs are held in the evenings and will be scheduled on site.
Do you have interesting work you would like to share, or a cool idea
that is not yet ready to be published? The EuroBSDCon audience provides
valuable discussion and feedback. We are particularly interested in
presentation of student work. To schedule your short report, send email
