Subject Announcing the CloudStack Collaboration Conference
Date Wed, 26 Sep 2012 21:58:40 GMT
(I know that this has been brought up on list already, but including for
completeness + more information. Feel free to forward to anyone who
might be interested.)

We're pleased to announce the first CloudStack Collaboration Conference,
to be
held in Las Vegas at The Venetian from November 30th through December
2nd.
We're now accepting proposals for talks at the Collaboration Conference,
through October 5th.

The Collaboration Conference will give CloudStack users an opportunity
to learn
about improvements in the upcoming Apache CloudStack 4.0 release, and
best
practices for deploying and managing CloudStack. Users will also be able
to
attend sessions on projects and tools that work well with CloudStack for
configuration management, storage, monitoring, creating a
Platform-as-a-Service
(PaaS) on top of CloudStack, and more.

Developers will enjoy sessions on contributing to CloudStack,
discussions on
CloudStack architecture, workshops to collaborate with other CloudStack
contributors, and more.

Attendees will also be treated to evening events to recharge after a
full day,
and get to know the rest of the CloudStack community.

Call for Presentations
======================

The program committee is looking for presentations and workshops related
to
working with and developing Apache CloudStack. This includes everything
from
running CloudStack at scale, best practices for working with IaaS
clouds,
discussions about CloudStack's architecture, proposals for post-4.0
development, and more. We're also open to talks on tools that go
hand-in-hand
with managing Apache CloudStack, like configuration management and
monitoring
tools.

In short, if it's relevant to Apache CloudStack deployment and/or
development,
we're interested in what you have to say.

Submit proposals at http://collab12.cloudstack.org/proposals/ by October
5th.
Notifications will go out on October 12th, 2012 and the final program
will be
announced by October 15th. Keynote announcements will go out shortly.

Travel and Registration
=======================

Conference registration will open shortly. The conference is free to
attend,
but we do need attendees to register in order to plan food and events
accordingly.

There will be a block of rooms at The Venetian at the rate of $159 per
night
for the duration of the conference. We'll be putting up registration
codes for
the venue shortly.

Citrix has made it possible to have a limited number of sponsorships for
speakers who need travel assistance, so if you need travel sponsorship
please
contact community@cloudstack.org.

We're excited about the opportunity to meet with the larger CloudStack
community, learn and collaborate face to face! Spread the word, and join
us in
Las Vegas on November 30th.
