A Sneak Peak!

Although we are not done yet, presentation abstracts that have been submitted to us and the all important session grid (work in process) are now available on our website at http://vmworkshop.org/2018.shtml#

Propose a Session to Present!

Inspired by our session list? Want to share your experiences? We continue to look for presentation submissions for the workshop. Presentations must be on topics related to z/VM, z/VSE, and Linux on Z.  If you have recently created or installed an application, found a new way to accomplish a task, etc., please consider sharing your experience with us.  Even if you won’t fill a complete session time slot, we can schedule multiple user experience presentations into one session.  For details on other sought-after topics and presentation requirements, please visit our session proposal submissions page.

For those of you considering a presentation submission including a demo, our sponsor ITC has offered to provide a fully operational zPDT system with three CPs activated for use by all presenters and educators at the conference.  It will have z/VM, z/VSE, and Linux on Z, installed and available.  If you have questions please see our session proposal page for ITC contact info.
