The official deadline for presentation proposals has now passed, and the
programme committee is about to start work assembling the programme.
However, we're intending to hold back committing on a few presentation
slots to allow for any high-quality late submissions. In particular,
there are quite a few Xen dev projects I know about that aren't
currently represented, so I'd encourage folk to come forward with
presentations that give a status update. More papers describing
real-world xen deployments or performance data would be great too.
Please send your proposals through to the summit-talks@xxxxxxxxxxxxx
alias ASAP and before Mon 22 Oct.
The registration site is now on-line, so you can start to register and
book hotel rooms at the reduced rate etc.
Hope to see you at the summit!
