I'm pleased to announce the WIP session signup for BSDCan 2006. Last
year, the WIP session was very successful, with presentations on
topics as diverse as new SSH implementations to BSD-based voicemail
systems, and we hope to replicate that success this year. The format
remains essentially the same: in a one hour period, audiences are
entertained and informed by a rapid fire series of short talks on
interesting new or on-going work by individuals or groups. Slides
aer permitted, but not obligatory; pictures are highly recommended.
Topic areas include new open source software projects, works in
progress for future releases of existing projects, student projects,
etc. WIP topics this year may make good conference papers next year!
The number of slots is limited, and experience suggests there will be
more takers than slots. Sign up well in advance to be assured a
spot. Please e-mail <firstname.lastname@example.org> to sign up. Send a one or two
paragraph summary of the topic to be presented, and the names of the
person(s) presenting it. Also, please give a time estimate --
typically times will be one to five minutes. The time limit will be
strictly enforced -- you will be cut off if you try to run over! The
WIP e-mail registration deadline is May 6, after which remaining
slots (if any) may be signed up for in person. Any slides must be
received by the WIP session chair by, at latest, May 11 at 11:59pm
GMT. The session chair this year is Robert Watson.
