Forthcoming Events


13 – 14 February 2002

UKUUG is holding its next Winter Conference in London on 13 and 14 February 2002. The UKUUG Winter Conference is historically an event where not only prominent topics are discussed within the Conference presentations but also where members and friends meet, learn, and enjoy lively debate on a host of subjects.

We wish to encourage discussion on all aspects of systems and their administration and are especially interested in papers covering theory and practice, high-availability, performance, network management, novel solutions to practical problems, integration, interoperability, and security (including the business, legal and moral issues).

The event will take the form of a series of presentations, each followed by a discussion on issues raised. To this end, papers are invited from interested parties on the general themes, and related topics.

As always, we wish to encourage work-in-progress presentations, and student project posters; proposals for these should be submitted in the same way as for full papers.

You do not have to be a member of UKUUG to submit a paper. Submissions from speakers from outside of the UK are welcome.
