Call For Papers
LISA '05: 19th Large Installation System Administration Conference 
December 4-9, 2005, San Diego, CA, USA
Submissions Deadline: May 10, 2005
Sponsored by USENIX and SAGE

Dear Colleague

The LISA '05 organizers invite you to contribute proposals for refereed papers, invited talks, and workshops, plus any ideas you have Guru Is In sessions, Work-in-Progress reports, and training sessions.

The Call for Participation with submission guidelines and sample
topics can be found on the USENIX Web site at http://www.usenix.org/lisa05/cfpa

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 divergent backgrounds and experience
levels to the conference dedicated to them. System and network
administrators from environments as diverse as academia, large
corporations and 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.

* Technical sessions 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 or a panel discussion topic.
* 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: lisa05chair at usenix.org

Submissions due: May 10, 2005
Notification to authors: June 2005
Final papers due: September 27, 2005
