Call For Participation – Abstracts Due Feb 12th

LUG 2016 is the primary event for technical presentations and discussions on the Lustre parallel file system. This year’s conference is being held in Portland, OR, from April 5-7, 2016.


Call for Presentations

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 over-arching goal of the conference is to provide a forum for end user sites to share knowledge and experience with their peers. With that in mind, the LUG Program Committee will prioritize abstracts from end users and their organizations


The LUG planning committee is looking for the following submission topics:

·         Best practices in deploying, monitoring and operating Lustre

·         Case studies/experiences using newer Lustre releases/features

·         Non-traditional deployment (for example from members of the business community)


We are also looking for presentations related to specific development challenges, new feature development, project updates, edge-case implementations, and more. We are only interested in development that is freely released to the community.


To submit an abstract please visit the LUG 2016 Call for Presentation Submission Website.


The abstract submission deadline is February 12, 2016. No submission extensions will be granted.


Abstracts should be a minimum of 250 words and should provide a clear description of the planned presentation and its goals. If the presentation describes new development or products then the abstract is required to detail how the development or product will be made available to the Lustre community. Authors must disclose if their presentations are vendor-neutral or promoting a product at abstract submission time.


Promotional presentations are frowned upon. Presentations that are vendor-neutral are strongly preferred. Speaking slots are available for Gold sponsors wishing to present vendor-specific and promotional presentations. Sponsorship details are available on the LUG web site.


All LUG presentations will be 30 minutes, with a total of 25 speaking opportunities available. Accepted presentations will be subject to panel review three weeks in advance of LUG 2016.


With the ongoing growth and outstanding progress of the Lustre community, LUG 2016 promises to be an exciting and informative event. Registration details and additional information will be available in the coming weeks on the LUG web site. We look forward to seeing you in Portland at LUG 2016! 


Best regards,

OpenSFS LUG Planning Committee
