Although the suggested date has passed for paper submissions, there are
still a handful of slot spaces, and I'd encourage anybody who would be
interested in presenting a paper to submit an abstract anyway.

FLOSS UK's 'DEVOPS' event will take place in York from the 24th - 26th

This is the UK's only conference aimed specifically at systems and
network administrators. It attracts a large number of professionals from
sites of all shapes and sizes. As well as the technical talks, the
conference provides a friendly environment for delegates to meet, learn,
and enjoy lively debate on a host of subjects.


Workshop: The conference will be preceded by a workshop. If you would
like to offer a workshop that might interest our target audience, please
submit a proposal. 


Conference: 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: 


*backup and restore

*benchmarking and performance tuning 

*networks & systems monitoring

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. There will be a
prize for the best talk.


Bursaries may be made available for accepted speakers who are unable to
afford travel costs. (Note: A budget limit has been set by Council and
all amounts are to be confirmed in advance).


All accepted speakers receive a complimentary conference place and a
