BSDCan WIP sessions


BSDCan is having Work In Progress presentations – 5 minutes or less on a given topic; sort of a “lightning talk”. I can’t find an online copy of the email announcing this, so I’ll paste in the body of what Dan Langille wrote:

“This year, BSDCan will be hosting a set of Work-in-Progress (WIP)
sessions, which will offer an opportunity for individuals or groups
to give up to five minute presentations on a on-going project.
Slides are permitted but not obligatory, but pictures are highly
recommended! Typical topics for WIPs might include new open source
software projects, specific works in progress for future releases of
existing projects, student projects, or other new and interesting
things. WIP topics this year may make good conference papers for
next year!

A one hour time slot is available for WIPs, so the number of slots is
limited! Sign up well in advance to be assured a spot. Please e-
mail papers@bsdcan.org to sign up — send a one or two paragraph
summary of the topic to be presented, and the person(s) presenting
it. Also, please give a time estimate — typically times will be one
to five minutes. The time limit will be strictly enforced. The WIP e-
mail registration deadline is May 6, after which remaining slots (if
any) may be signed up for in person. Any slides must be provided in
advance, in PDF, Open Office, or Powerpoint format. The WIP session
will be chaired by Robert Watson. The deadline for slides is
midnight Friday 13 May 2005 and they should be sent to
rwatson@FreeBSD.org.”
