Dear Colleague:

On behalf of all of the LISA '06 organizers, I'd like to invite you to join us in Washington, D.C., for the 20th Large Installation System Administration Conference.

For the past 19 years LISA has been the focal point for the global community of system and network administrators. This year LISA continues that tradition, featuring innovative tools and techniques essential for your professional and technical development.

Take advantage of the popular 6 days of training. Select from over 50 tutorials taught by highly expert instructors, including:

-- Gerald Carter on Ethereal and the Art of Debugging Networks

-- Richard Bejtlich on TCP/IP Weapons

-- AEleen Frisch on Administering Linux in Production Environments

-- Chip Salzenberg on Higher-Order Perl

-- And more . . .

The full training program can be found at http://www.usenix.org/lisa06/training/

In addition to the training, 3 days of technical sessions include top-notch refereed papers, informative invited talks, expert Guru Is In sessions, and the popular Hit the Ground Running track. http://www.usenix.org/events/lisa06/tech/

* Our 20+ invited talks feature our most impressive slate of speakers to date. They include:

-- Keynote: "Hollywood's Secret War on Your NOC," by Cory Doctorow, co-editor of Boing Boing and former Director of European Affairs for the EFF

-- "Open Source Software and Its Role in Space Exploration," by DJ Byrne, Jet Propulsion Laboratory

-- "Teaching Problem Solving: You Can and You Should," by Elizabeth Zwicky, Acuitus

-- "High Availability: From Luxury to Commonplace Necessity in 10 Years," by Eric Hennessey, Symantec Corp.

* LISA is the premier forum for presenting new research in system administration. We selected papers from over 40 submissions, showcasing state-of-the-art work on topics including system and network management, theory, visualization, security, electronic mail, and more.

* Get a head start on key technologies with 15-minute talks in the Hit the Ground Running track. Find out about the basic concepts, what acronyms you will encounter, and what Web sites and books are the best resources. http://www.usenix.org/events/lisa06/htg.html

* Bring your perplexing technical questions to experts at LISA's Guru Is In sessions.
