Dear Colleague

The annual LISA conference is the meeting place of choice for system,
network, security, and other computing administrators.
Administrators of all specialties and levels of expertise meet at
LISA to exchange ideas, sharpen skills, learn new techniques,
debate current issues, and meet colleagues and friends.

People representing every work assignment from the full-time position
at a large site to the part-time one at a small shop come to LISA
from over 30 countries, bringing a variety of backgrounds and experience
levels to the conference dedicated to them. System and network
administrators from environments as diverse as academia, large
corporations, small businesses, government organizations, and
research sites find LISA to be the place to go for training,
education, networking, and interacting with their peers.

The conference's diverse group of participants is matched by an
equally broad spectrum of activities:

* Training sessions for both beginners and experienced attendees
cover many administrative topics ranging from basic administrative
procedures to using cutting-edge technologies.

* Refereed papers present the latest developments and ideas related
to system and network administration.

* Invited talks and panels discuss important and timely topics and
often spark lively debates and conversation.

* Work-in-progress reports (WiPs) provide brief peeks at next year's

* Submit a draft paper or extended abstract proposal for a refereed paper.
* Suggest an invited talk speaker.
* Share your experience by leading a Guru Is In session.
* Propose a training session topic.
* Organize or suggest a Birds-of-a-Feather (BoF) session.
* Email an idea to the chair:
