Co-located with LinuxCon North America in  New Orleans, The Xen Project User Summit is a community event which brings users of all types together for an intensive day of learning and sharing.  The full day of sessions will feature a wide array of talks from the novice through expert level. The summit organizers are seeking a wide range of talk submissions, including Xen Project best practices, case studies, scaling, performance, and clouds.  Review the full CFP for more information.  Make sure you submit your proposal before the July 26 deadline!

Xen Project Developer Summit

Come and spend a full two days of talks and workshops addressing issues of Xen Project Development.  This is a rare opportunity to gather together with developers in and around the Xen Project to discuss a wide range of topics.  The organizers are requesting proposals relating to Xen and its development, integration, and usage.  If you were looking for a way to present an idea which could change the course of development of the Xen Project, your opportunity has arrived!  Just make sure to submit your proposal by August 30.

And don’t forget…

3 weeks to XenSummit

It is time again for the XenSummit North America, which will start in 3 weeks. This year, XenSummit is conveniently co-located with CloudOpen and LinuxCon. If you use open source Xen, Huawei UVP, Oracle VM, XenServer, XenClient or other Xen derived products and want to see where the Xen open source project is heading, you should consider attending the 2012 Summit. If you are intending to build a Xen based cloud, XenSummit will also provide lots of great content.

XenSummit is a 2 day in-depth technical event that provides attendees with a chance to interact with and learn from contributors to Xen.org projects and users of the open source Xen Hypervisor, Xen Cloud Platform and Xen ARM projects.

This year’s event will cover topics from Cloud Computing, Xen in embedded and mobile devices, Xen on ARM based Servers, Security, Xen and Linux, Xen and BSD, Xen case-studies, Xen and storage, latest Xen research as well as many others topics. The event features speakers from AMD, ARM, Broadcom, Bromium, the BSD Community, Cambridge University, Canonical, Calxeda, Citrix, The Flux Research Group, Galois, Huawei, Inktank, Intel, Locaweb, OnApp, Oracle, Rackspace Hosting and the University of Applied Sciences (HES) in Vaud.
