E-Mail Systems Conference 2008 (Exim and other mail systems) Preliminary Announcement and Call for Papers Thu/Fri 3/4-Apr-2008 Birmingham, England
This conference is being run with the cooperation of the UKUUG -- the UK's Unix and Open Systems User Group. The UKUUG conference takes place immediately before the E-Mail Systems conference, on Tue/Wed 1/2 April 2008, at the same venue. The themes of the UKUUG conference are Virtualization and Dynamic Languages.
The aim of the conference is to provide:
* A forum to discuss practical experiences using Exim and other e-mail systems, for a wide range of users, from ISPs to tiny sites.
* Tutorials for various levels of expertise.
* A venue for the community, for informal networking and meeting socially.
* A focus for the Exim developers, especially now that Philip Hazel, the creator and lead developer is retiring. We will provide meeting facilities for all those interested in getting involved in maintaining and developing Exim.
The last conference (2005), was solely about Exim. This time we have broadened the theme because many topics -- issues with very large mail systems, spam filtering, resilience of mail systems, mail server clustering, mail performance, running message stores, techniques, etc. -- are common to all, and we want as broad a community as possible to participate.
Papers: Send abstracts of about 200 words, along with a short biographical note, to exim08-speakers (at) uit.co.uk. Talks should last 30-60 minutes, including Q&A.
Tutorials: If you would like to present a tutorial, send an abstract as above.
Suggestions: If you don't want to speak, but there is a topic you're particularly interested in, or a speaker you think would be good for the conference, or a tutorial you'd like to attend, do let us know on the above e-mail address.
