[CFP] Config Management Devroom at FOSDEM 2016

The FOSDEM Call for Proposals for the Configuration Management devroom
on January 31, 2016 is open!

FOSDEM Submissions are due on December 1, 2015. If you submitted a
talk to a previous FOSDEM, you should already have an account in
Pentabarf, so make sure that you log in with your existing account.
You should only need to create an account if you have not submitted a
talk to FOSDEM in recent years. FOSDEM has a bunch of devrooms, so
please make sure that you select the "Configuration Management"
devroom in the "Track" dropdown when you submit your talk. Submissions
filed under an incorrect devroom will not be noticed.

Topic Description:
Mini-talks from real world case studies, brainstorming and hacking
around configuration and systems management from complex virtual
environments and cloud computing to desktops and laptops. There is
huge interest in automation, monitoring, performance management,
configuration management, and DevOps. We are looking for
presentations from people who are working in the field on these

  • Configuration and Systems Management theory, principles and development
  • Configuration and Systems Management tools - with an emphasis on
    real world use cases
  • Techniques and case studies
  • Audit, Compliance and Security
  • Various DevOps topics, including collaboration and training tips.

This same team of people is also organizing ConfigManagementCamp,
which is in nearby Gent on February 1st and 2nd. The CFP is also open, and
we encourage you to submit your talks before the December 1, 2015
