[Xen-users] Virtualization Mini Summit at linuxsymposium 2008
linuxsymposium 2008, Ottawa, Canada, July 23 - July 26, 2008

The intent of the Virtualization MiniSummit is to provide a forum for
attendees to explore all aspects of Linux virtualization. Whether that
be the underlying technology, application of the technology in their
environment or new tools for managing and doing interesting and new
things with virtualized servers.

Attendees can range from those developing virtualization technologies,
using virtualization, managing virtualized environments to wanting to
learn more about virtualization.

A potential list of topics:

* Review and/or provide deep insight into the fundamentals of specific
virtualization technologies
* Exploration of project development opportunities
* Discussion of ideas to improve virtualization technologies
* How virtualized environments can be made manageable
* What's worked and what has not worked
* New and emerging ideas for virtualizing Linux systems


Presentation time slots will be on the order of 50 minutes and should
include time for questions (10-15 minutes).

a personal biography that will be displayed on the Virtualization Mini
Summit web site at:
