LUG 2014 Call for Presentations

OpenSFS_EOFS_theme-banner_finalSponsorBanner_Feb3The 12th annual Lustre® User Group (LUG) conference, the primary event for technical presentations and discussions on the Lustre parallel file system and other open source file system technologies, is being held in Miami, Florida, from April 8-10, 2014. Doing something interesting with Lustre? Pushing the boundaries? We’d love to have you involved!

Call for Presentations is now closed.

OpenSFS relies on the real world experience of the open source Lustre community members to provide valuable sessions to LUG attendees. We’re pleased to extend a call for presentations to solicit topics from Lustre users.

The LUG planning committee is looking for insight into best practices in deploying Lustre, case studies by Lustre users, and experiences from members of the business community who rely on Lustre. We are also looking for presentations related to specific development challenges, new feature development, project updates, edge-case implementations, and more.

All LUG presentations will be 30 minutes, with a total of 30 speaking opportunities available. We encourage you to review the agendas and caliber of presentations at past LUG events.

Submission deadline was January 31, 2014 and is now closed

To submit an abstract:

  • Visit the LUG 2014 Call for Presentations Submission web site
  • You will need to create a user account on Easy Chair (our online submission platform) if you don’t already have one.
  • After providing your user details via Easy Chair, you will be prompted to complete the online submission process
    • An abstract is only required for the submission process; presentation materials will be requested once abstracts are reviewed and selected

Panel Discussions

Panel discussions are the ideal forum for hearing from leading developers, vendors, and users of Lustre as they debate future requirements, explore upcoming enhancements, and share real world best practices. If you’d like to suggest a topic for a panel discussion – or be part of a panel, please contact [email protected].
