publishing venue

I've been talking to the folks at Usenix about a venue for papers
of interest to this group. They've very eager to have such papers
at the LISA (Large Installation System Administration) conference.

Timing is tight for this year -- the deadline is in three weeks ( ). For those who aren't
familiar with LISA, this is a conference with that publishes
proceedings of refereed papers. The success, of course, depends
on members of this community submitting papers, this year and next
-- that's what will make the conference interesting to this community.

I'm working on a journal, too.

it is interesting that the theme for this year's lisa conference is
"System Administration Reality - Automation, Configuration, and
Users" some concepts near and dear to many of our hearts in the
realm of network, as opposed to system, administration.
