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 cfp at nycbsdcon dot org in 
text, ps or pdf format.
