[Xen-devel] Xen Summit #4, Apr 17-18, Yorktown, NY


The summit program is shaping up nicely -- we've received talk proposals
from a whole host of interesting Xen-related projects that I haven't
previously heard of. 

We've decided to go for a two track program which will allow more space
for attendees, hence we can now open registration more widely --
consider the link to the registration site below now open to everyone on
a first come first served basis.  

We're still very interested to hear talk proposals but please send a few
sentences to summit-talks <at> xensource.com ASAP as we want to get the
sessions finalized.

Hope to see you at the summit!
