XenSummit Asia : Accepting Topics

The talk submission system for Xen Summit Asia, held Nov 2-3 in Seoul, Korea is now open for for anyone interested in speaking this year.

All speakers are required to submit their topic by Sept 16th, 2011 using the online tool or by e-mailing community.manager@xen.org. All submitted topics are reviewed by the Program Committee and a final agenda should be available by the end of September. If you have any questions about your topic or speaking at this event, please contact me for more information.

Program Management Committee

I am also still looking for volunteers to join the Program Management Committee for XenSummit Asia. As a PMC member you have the following responsibilities

  • Review submitted topics for the event (we will typically have 3 one hour calls and a bit of homework is needed)
  • Assist in compiling the final agenda for the event
  • If attending, introduce speakers – you don’t have to

Please get in touch with community.manager@xen.org, if you want to join the PMC. We are aiming to have the first PMC meeting the week of Sept 12th.
