Jordan K. Hubbard writes:

The deadline for abstracts has been extended from December 2nd
to December 15th. Those of you who have not yet submitted an
abstract (which really need be no more than half a page in length)
and wish to present a paper at the next USENIX conference on a free
software topic should DEFINITELY GET YOUR ABSTRACTS IN BEFORE THE
15th!

This is the very last extension we’ll be able to make, so please
don’t delay! The full papers aren’t due until April 27, 1999
(camera ready copy date) or May 11, 1999 if you don’t intend to
submit your paper for publication in the proceedings, so all we
really need from you by December 15th is a simple abstract.

The FREENIX track at the 1998 conference was one of the most
popular tracks in USENIX’s history and I hope all of you will join
me in making the 1999 conference an even bigger forum for free/open
source software discussion. If you’ve been doing something
interesting in the world of free software this last year, this is
your chance to tell others about it!

The USENIX technical conference is and always has been a very
unique and special event for Unix users and next year’s conference,
set in beautiful Monterey, CA., promises to be an especially good
one given all the focus on open source lately. So please, send in
your abstracts!

All abstracts should be sent to: [email protected]
Due date: December 15, 1998.
Camera ready copy: April 27, 1999
Final FREENIX papers due: May 11, 1999

Thanks!
