Dear Community Members,

Just a quick reminder that, the CFP for XenSummit is open and that all submissions must be received before midnight May 1, 2012 PDT. You have one month to get your submissions in. Note that this is much earlier than in previous years!

I will also shortly announce the Program Managament Committee: if you are interested in joining the PMC, please get in touch with me by next week. We also still have sponsorship opportunities. If you are interested, please contact me at community.manager@xen.org.

XenSummit in North America will be held from Aug 27-28, 2012 in San Diego, CA, USA. The event will be overlap with the Linux Kernel Summit and be immediately before LinuxCon North America 2012 and Linux Plumbers Conference. All these events will be in the same venue.
