USENIX'03 - FREENIX Track
June 9-14, 2003 San Antonio, Texas
I'd just like to encourage members of the Python community to consider submitting a paper to the USENIX'03 FREENIX track. FREENIX is an ideal venue for describing new and interesting work on open-source and freely available software projects. Although submissions should describe mature work, papers do not need to be research papers. In fact, submissions describing projects that are underway, but not yet finished are actively encouraged.
Putting on my educator hat for a moment, I'd also like to add that FREENIX is a very nice venue for students. USENIX has always encouraged student submissions--in fact, student presenters often receive free conference registration and may apply for grants to cover travel and hotel expenses. Therefore, if you're working on something cool, this is a perfect opportunity to tell people about it.
More details about FREENIX can be found at the above URL. Submissions are due by November 18, 2002. Hopefully you'll join us in San Antonio!
