Hello folks,


BSDCan 2009 will be held 8-9 May, 2009 in Ottawa at the University of
Ottawa. It will be preceded by two days of tutorials on 6-7 May.

We are now accepting proposals for talks.

The talks should be designed with a very strong technical content bias.
Proposals of a business development or marketing nature are not
appropriate for this venue.

If you are doing something interesting with a BSD operating system,
please submit a proposal. Whether you are developing a very complex
system using BSD as the foundation, or helping others and have a story
to tell about how BSD played a role, we want to hear about your
experience.  People using BSD as a platform for research are also
encouraged to submit a proposal. Possible topics include:

* How we manage a giant installation with respect to handling spam.
* and/or sysadmin.
* and/or networking.

 From the BSDCan website, the Archives section will allow you to review
the wide variety of past BSDCan presentations as further examples.

Both users and developers are encouraged to share their experiences.

The RFP schedule is:

19 Dec 2008 Proposal acceptance begins
19 Jan 2009 Proposal acceptance ends
19 Feb 2009 Confirmation of accepted proposals

We were late in sending out reminders, so we'll accept proposals past 
this deadline.  Just submit.  Thanks.
