You will receive a notification whether or not your presentation proposal
was accepted by May 31st.
One of the big challenges as developers is to know what, where and how
people actually use our software. We will reserve a few slots for end
users talking about their deployment challenges and achievements.
If you are using KVM in production you are encouraged submit a speaking
proposal. Simply mark it as an end-user collaboration proposal. As and
end user, this is a unique opportunity to get your input to developers.
We will reserve some slots in the evening after the main conference
tracks, for birds of a feather sessions. These sessions will be less
formal than presentation tracks and targetted for people who would
like to discuss specific issues with other developers and/or users.
If you are interested in getting developers and/or uses together to
discuss a specific problem, please submit a BOF proposal.
In addition to submitted talks we will also have some room for lightning
talks. These are short (5 minute) discussions to highlight new work or
ideas that aren't complete enough to warrant a full presentation slot.
Lightning talk submissions and scheduling will be handled on-site at

The KVM Forum 2011 will be held in Vancouver BC at the Hyatt Regency
