HPC/ End User Track at Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit

If you are a corporate end user of Linux, consider attending the free
and invite-only Linux Foundation Annual Collaboration Summit on April
8-10 in San Francisco.

The Collaboration Summit is an exclusive, invitation-only gathering of
the brightest minds in Linux, including core kernel developers,
distribution maintainers, ISVs, end users, system vendors and other
community organizations. It is the only conference designed to
accelerate collaboration and encourage solutions by bringing together
a true cross-section of leaders to meet face-to-face to tackle and
solve the most pressing issues facing Linux today.

The 3-day event will include a specific track for HPC end users (labs,
government, academic institutions, FSI).  The HPC track agenda
includes:

- Key Note
- Customer Panel
- Open Sourcing the Firmware Layers
- Hot Kernel Issues for HPC topics include: Realtime, networking,
memory management, multicore scalability, clocks, filesystems
- Resource management
- Emerging HPC Technologies topics include: Checkpoint/Restart, Using
Virtualization in the HPC environment
- HW Accelerators topics include: open cl, exploitation on linux, management
- Next Steps

We are calling for papers for topics related to Hot Kernel Issues for
HPC and Emerging HPC Technologies as above. Call For Papers (CFP)
submissions are due February 15, 2009.  To submit a proposal, please
