UnixReview offers a preview of what's coming up at Usenix this year, including the Freenix track, which will include sessions on MAC security, scripting, user space, user environment, kernel, graphics, network security, resource management, a paper on "Building an Open-Source Solaris-Compatible Thread Library", and a paper on a Unix mailer that detects malicious Windows executables.

"Most high-tech rendezvous are trade shows; some are arcane academic affairs; others are vendor-sponsored living white papers that that take you on a tightly-supervised journey through one side of the story. But the Usenix conference seems to hold all these forces in balance. Both the content and the guest list reflect the full diversity and excitement of the Unix world. The best minds of Unix are in evidence--professors and programmers, students, designers, consultants, and lots of everyday sys admins from all over the world. You?ll find a strong academic influence at Usenix, but also an equally strong presence from researchers at large corporate labs. More recently, Linux vendors and other open source groups have added their energies to the mix. The result is a remarkably representative slurry of ideas, observations, and information that provide an illuminating context for what is happening now in the world of computing. If you're a Unix professional and you only go to one conference this year, it ought to be a Usenix conference. (Usenix offers several other conferences in addition to the technical conference, including the Usenix Security Symposium, the Linux Showcase, and the popular Large Installation System Administration [LISA] conference.) See the UnixReview Shows page or the Usenix Web site (www.usenix.org) for more on upcoming events. "
