As I presented in my 2009 Xen Summit plan, I am working to host a Xen Summit event in Germany next Summer. I recently spoke with the LinuxTAG managers and they are currently planning to host their event June 24 – 27, 2009 in Berlin, Germany. I believe this to be an excellent conference for us to “piggyback” on so I am considering LinuxTAG for our first Xen Summit Germany event. We have 3 ways to particiapte with LinuxTAG:
- Hold a 1 day event during LinuxTAG that is open to all LinuxTAG attendees but is separate from the main event
- Create a “Xen.org Virtualization” track within the general LinuxTAG event where our members present various topics during the LinuxTAG event itself which we can promote as a Xen.org Virtualization track.
- Combine items #1 and #2 below to still hold something separate for Xen Summit but also promote Xen.org as a track
I find the second option very interseting, but would like to get feedback from the community on ideas for implementing our event with LinuxTAG.
If anyone has feedback on other conferences I should consider, please let me know or comment on this blog posting as I would like to finalize the schedule for 2009 concerning this event.
