XenSummit Asia : First Talks Announced

After nearly two weeks of travelling (Xen Hackathon two weeks ago, the Open World Forum last week), I have finally managed to publish location details, hotel information and the first 10 talks for XenSummit Asia, held Nov 2-3 in Seoul, Korea. I wanted to thank the Program Committe Members Mr. Sang-Bum Suh, Prof. Chuck Yoo, Mr. Sungi Kim and Ian Pratt for helping select the content for the summit.

The summit will be hosted in the Hana Square Auditorium on the Science Campus of Korea University. As usual, we will need to charge a small fee for covering costs. Because we are somewhat behind in publishing information regarding XenSummit, we decided to publish new information as it appears. By next week, I should have the complete speaker line-up, schedule, hotel discount information and will be able to open registration for the summit.

Given that Korea is the home of the Xen ARM project, led by Samsung, we will naturally hear much about Xen on ARM. You can also expect Xen research and developer talks and some Xen user stories. I am particularly excited about the “Xen @ Google” talk. With the Xen hypervisor powering 90% of the public cloud, there will also be a bit of cloud related content such as “Deep Dive into OpenStack” and “Skylark: Easy Cloud Computing“.

Stay tuned and see you at XenSummit!
