Announcing Two Co-located Refereed Meetings devoted to Windows NT:

3rd USENIX Windows NT Symposium, and LISA NT, the 2nd Large
Installation System Administration of Windows NT Conference

=================================================================
3rd USENIX Windows NT Symposium
     July 12-14, 1999
     Seattle, Washington
Sponsored by USENIX, the Advanced Computing Systems Association

Call for Papers: http://www.usenix.org/events/usenix-nt99
=================================================================

Following the tradition established by two very successful symposia,
the third Windows NT Symposium will provide a forum for  discussion
of research and advanced engineering use of Windows NT. The
symposium brings together professionals from academic and
industrial backgrounds who are actively involved in using or
planning to use Windows NT and want to discuss ideas and share
information, experiences, and results.

The symposium will include technical presentations of refereed
papers, invited talks, informal Demo/Poster and Birds-of-a-Feather
sessions, and tutorials. The symposium will be followed by a
one-day, limited-attendance Advanced Research on Windows NT Workshop.

The Program Committee, chaired by Werner Vogels of Cornell
University and Stephen Walli of Softway Systems, Inc., is
soliciting papers.  Papers that present research results, analyze
problem areas, draw important conclusions from practical
experience, or facilitate discussion are especially welcome.
Technical paper submissions are due February 23, 1999.

LISA-NT, 2nd Large Installation System Administration of Windows NT
      July 14-16, 1999
      Seattle, Washington
Sponsored by USENIX, the Advanced Computing Systems Association
Co-sponsored by SAGE, the System Administrators Guild

Call for Papers: http://www.usenix.org/events/lisa-nt99
=================================================================

What are the qualities of good models of system and network
administration? Sites around the world are asking this question as
they build networks of varying size and complexity that include
Microsoft Windows NT on the desktop, in the server room, or both.
LISA-NT is a forum to bring system administration professionals
together to discuss workable solutions to the issues of administering
and scaling the NT environment.

LISA NT is about creating a community of system administrators from
diverse computing environments and giving them the opportunity to
discuss problems and share solutions.  The Conference Co-chairs,
Gerald Carter of Auburn University and Ralph Loura of DE Shaw & Co.,
invite you to submit technical papers as well as proposals for invited
talks, panel sessions, tutorials, and Work-in-Progress reports. Please
go to the web site to review the call for papers, make a submission,
and join us in making LISA NT '99 the premiere conference for system
administrators of distributed NT environments. Submission proposals
are due Feb. 23, 1999.
