Do you want to meet the brains behind some of the most innovative, 
groundbreaking and useful features in Open Source operating systems?
Have you ever wondered what it takes to make useful features or 
technologies appear in different operating systems?

Some of the finest minds in Open Source operating systems are coming to 
Brisbane for the first Kernel Conference Australia - come and hear 
keynote presentations from Jeff Bonwick, Bill Moore from Sun 
Microsystems Inc and Max Alt from Intel USA - learn about other 
operating systems' features - be inspired to contribute.

Kernel Conference Australia is a Kernel-focused technical conference to 
be held in Brisbane, Australia, from July 15th to 17th, 2009. Any and 
all Open Source kernels and the technologies within those kernels are 
open for discussion. The only hard criteria is that the kernel must be 
covered by an OSI-approved license.

This will be the first conference of its type for Australia or the 
Asia-Pacific region.

 From this conference, you should expect to walk away with:

     * meet and learn from the inventors of Sun's revolutionary ZFS 
filesystem
     * learn how different operating systems implement features you 
depend on
     * discover what it takes to complete a successful kernel port
     * learn about the latest research in operating systems

Who should attend?

     * Anybody who wants to learn how their operating system really works!
     * Developers
     * System Administrators
     * Researchers and Students
