Fwd: CFP: High Availability and Distributed Storage miniconf at LCA 2012
In order to test the newly restored LF mailing list services, I though
I'd send this out again. CFP is still open, so if you:

- will be in Australia in January, or,
- want an excuse to be in Australia in January,

And you:

- have something to say about HA clustering or distributed storage
on Linux, or,
- know someone else who meets several of the first three criteria

You should put in a proposal (or ask your friend to).

Thanks for listening :-)

Hi All,

I'm pleased to announce that we will be hosting a one day High
Availability and Distributed Storage mini conference on January 16 2012,
as part of in Ballarat, Australia.

We would like to invite proposals for presentations to be delivered at
the miniconf. Please feel free to forward this CFP to your colleagues
and other relevant mailing lists.

Suggested topics for presentations include (but are not limited to):

- Cluster resource management
- Cluster membership/messaging
- Clustered filesystems
- Distributed storage
- SQL and NoSQL databases
- Caching layers

The CFP is open until November 6. Proposals can be submitted at:

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly
(please do not group reply to this announcement).

Note that as this miniconf is part of, you will need to
register to attend the main conference
( Unfortunately we have no
sponsorship budget for speakers, so presenting at the miniconf does not
entitle you to discounted or free registration. If you need help
convincing your employer to fund your travel, please see - this is *the* Linux
conference to be at in the southern hemisphere!
