Only a few Days to go to XenSummit Asia

Only a few days to go to XenSummit Asia: the event is shaping up to be great. I wanted to thank our sponsors and hosts for helping make XenSummit Asia happen. Sponsors of the event are: Samsung Electronics, University of Korea, kt and GitHub. Due to the additional support, we are able to offer students to attend the event for free.

The schedule looks great: Check it out!

XenSummit Asia: Open for Registration

XenSummit Asia is now open for registration. As usual we will charge a fee to cover the cost of XenSummit and will require you to register for the event. The cost will be $150. Registration will be open until Oct 31st. If you need an invitation letter for a visa, please fill out this form and e-mail me.

Hotel information and a draft agenda is available on the event page. A bit more information on group booking codes for hotels will follow. We also have not scheduled all talks yet. I wanted to thank Mr. Kim from Samsung and Prof. Yoo from Korea University for helping organising the event.

The event is sponsored and hosted by Samsung and the University of Korea. A big thank you for supporting the community!

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!

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.

12 days to XenSummit

Just a quick reminder that XenSummit is in 12 days. Since the agenda was published a few weeks back, there have been some additions.

  • AB Periasamy, CTO, Gluster, discusses how the Gluster OpenStack Connector brings scale-out unified file and object storage capability to Xen and OpenStack.
  • Also pre-registration for Lighning talks and Lunchtime BoFs for Aug 2 are already full, but there is still some space for Aug 3. If you do want to register, fill out the on-line form or register on the day

I will hopefully also be able to reveal the Amazon speaker and details of the Amazon keynote soon. All other information, such as abstracts, detailed agenda, hotel information, registration is available on the XenSummit portal.

XenSummit Abstracts Available

The abstracts for XenSummit North America are now available on the XenSummit portal.

Note that early registration ends Monday (registration fee will be raised  to $150 after that).

If you are interested in participating in a possible Xen.org developer meeting on August 4 (the day after the summit), sign up  here. If at least 25 people sign up, we will hold the meeting.
