[Xen-devel] Call for Proposals : XenSummit #4, Yorktown NY


We are pleased to announce that IBM has offered to host the 4th Xen
Summit, which will be held April 17-18 2007 at the IBM TJ Watson
Research Center, Yorktown Heights, NY.  IBM is one of the most active
contributors to the Xen project, and has been one of its strongest

We're still planning the event, but the high level picture is this:
there is likely to be a space constraint for attendees, and priority
will be given to those who have contributed to the Xen code base
and/or those whose proposal for a talk at the Summit are accepted by
the relevant session organizer(s).  Please see the call for
presentations below.  Also, large companies may have to be limited to
a quota of attendees, so that there will be plenty of room for other
community members.

Watch for a Reg Site notice soon.  You will be responsible for your own
accommodation and transport; there will be as small a fee as we can
manage, to cover lunches, dinner, registration staff and some form of 
fun event.

Let's make this another great summit!
