AFS Workshop/Conference Europe 2008 - Call for Paper

September, 24-29, 2008
TU Graz, Austria

Institute of Computer Graphics & Knowledge Visualization
Institute of Signal Processing and Speech Communication

(Open)AFS is a distributed file system, used by people all over the
world. After the last few workshops hold in the United States of
America, this year the conference will be a hosted in Europe: Graz,
Austria - September 24th-26th 2008.

In the last 13 years the German AFS workshop took place at different
locations all over Germany. This year we broke this rule, held the
workshop in Austria and invite ALL AFS users, administrators, developers
and all with interest to the AFS file system to join our European
conference. The conference talks will be held in English.

Invited speakers - Mr. Derrick Brashear and Mr. Jeffrey Altman =E2=80=93 =
attend the conference and talk about the current status of the OpenAFS
foundation, software and future development. Additionally a debugging
session is planned.

We still got free slots for interesting talks; please contact us at
afsconference@cgv.tugraz.at in order to attend as a speaker with an
interesting talk about an AFS topic!

We would like to continue with an old tradition from the last German AFS
workshops: short site reports. Please consider preparing a short 15 min
site report about your AFS cell (how much users, data...) for
presentation at the conference.

Due to travel costs for the invited speakers from the USA and hosting
the conference for 2.5 days we need to take a conference fee of 210 Euro.
Early bird bonus: registration until 1st of September 2008 and pay only
160 Euro. The fee includes 2x lunch, a guided city visit, a social event
at "Heuriger" (wine tavern), coffee and a free shirt.  Surplus will be
spent to the OpenAFS Foundation.

More information is available at

Registration starts August, 1st 2008.

Please attend as a speaker with a interesting talk, we are very
interested in YOUR usage of (Open)AFS at your place!
