XenSummit : Quick Update

I wanted to thank everybody who submitted a proposal to speak for XenSummit. This year we had the most submissions we ever had. The XenSummit Program Management Committee, which is made up of

  • David Nalley (Cloudstack.org)
  • Donald D Dugger (Intel)
  • Ian Campbell (Citrix)
  • Konrad Rzeszutek Wilk (Oracle) and
  • Lars Kurth (Xen.org)

will have its first meeting later this week. We are hoping that we will be able to announce the XenSummit program in the first week of July. This may be a tall order though, as we will have togo through a lot of very good proposals.

In any case, XenSummit registration is open already and a XenSummit ticket costs USD 99. Information about location, co-located events, hotel bookings, invitation letters and tours of San Diego (for which we have a discount) are on the XenSummit page. I did want remind you that rooms on our block must be booked before 17:00 PST, July 27, 2012. Also note that a quarter of the allocated rooms have already been reserved.
