UKUUG's annual Large Installation Systems Administration (LISA) conference will take place in Manchester from 23-25 March 2010.

This is the UK's only conference aimed specifically at systems and network administrators. It attracts a large number of professionals from sites of all shapes and sizes. As well as the technical talks, the conference provides a friendly environment for delegates to meet, learn, and enjoy lively debate on a host of subjects.


The conference will be preceded by a tutorial or extended workshop. Recent past conferences have included sessions on: Perl for Systems Administrators; IPv6; Linux HA; Perl 6; Samba and Kerberos. If you would like to offer a tutorial that might interest our target audience, please submit a proposal by email to


We are currently accepting proposals for talks; so if you are a systems administrator or developer, we want to hear from you. We are seeking papers covering all aspects of systems and network administration, including:

  • security and audit
  • authentication and authorisation
  • operating systems
  • ethics and legislative compliance
  • storage solutions
  • network file systems
  • databases and directory services
  • nomadic and wireless computing
  • benchmarking and performance tuning
  • configuration management
  • scripting and task automation
  • cluster management

If you have a novel solution to a problem, experience of a particular application or hardware platform, tips and tricks for fellow systems administrators, or a favourite tool you could talk about, please submit a paper for consideration by the programme committee.

Talks should include a high level of technical content and not involve sales pitches.
