FLOSS UK Spring 2013 
Tutorial & Conference

Newcastle-upon-Tyne - 19th - 21st March 2013

FLOSS UK's annual Large Installation Systems Administration (LISA) conference 
will take place in Newcastle-upon-Tyne from the 20th - 21st March 2013.

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.

Tutorial: The conference will be preceded by a tutorial or extended workshop. 
Recent past conferences have included sessions on: Perl for Systems 
Administrators; IPv6; Kerberos, Samba, Scons, Haskell and Chef. If you would 
like to offer a tutorial 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 
*data de-duplication 
*security and audit 
*authentication and authorisation 
*virtualisation and system deployment using 'cloud' technology 
*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 

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.
