Call for Sepakers/Proposals: USELINUX

Here is Ted Tso's call for proposals for next summer's Unsenix in Boston

I will be a bit involved reviewing papers. 

Proposals are due on December 3. 
Call for Sepakers/Proposals: USELINUX

USELINUX will be one (or possibly two) day special interest track
hosted as part of the 2004 USENIX Annual Technical Conference in
Boston (June 27 through July 2, 2004).  The focus of USELINUX, as the
name implies, will be on showcasing ways in which creative members of
the Linux community are making use of Linux --- on the desktop, in
embedded applications, in corporate data centers, in retail
environments --- the possibilities are endless!

We are soliciting proposals for presentations covering any of the
following topics:
