Dear Colleague,

On behalf of all of the LISA '05 organizers, I'd like to invite you to
join us in San Diego for the 19th Large Installation System
Administration Conference.

For the past 18 years LISA has been the focal point for the global
community of system and network administrators. This year LISA continues
that tradition, featuring innovative tools and techniques essential for
your professional and technical development.

Back by popular demand: 6 days of training. Select from over 50
tutorials taught by highly expert instructors, including:

-- Rik Farrow on Hands-on Linux Security

-- Dan Bailey on 802.11 Wireless Network Penetration Testing

-- Richard Bejtlich on Network Incidence Response

-- Jacob Farmer on Disk-to-Disk Backup

-- and more . . .

The full training program can be found at
http://www.usenix.org/lisa05/training/

In addition to the training, 3 days of technical sessions include
top-notch refereed papers, informative invited talks, and expert Guru Is
In sessions. http://www.usenix.org/events/lisa05/tech/

* Our invited talks feature our most impressive slate of speakers to
date. They include:

-- Keynote Speaker Qi Lu, Vice President of Engineering, Yahoo! Inc., on
"Scaling Search Beyond the Public Web"

-- Matt Blaze, University of Pennsylvania, on "Picking Locks with
Cryptology"

-- Kevin Bankston, EFF, on "How Sysadmins Can Protect Free Speech and
Privacy on the Electronic Frontier"

-- Dan Kaminsky, DoxPara Research, on "Network Black Ops: Extracting
Unexpected Functionality from Existing Networks"

-- Andrew Cowie, Operational Dynamics, on "Modern Trends in UNIX and
Linux Infrastructure Management"

-- Terry Slattery, Netcordia, Inc., on "Silly Network Management Tricks"

* LISA is the premier forum for presenting new research in system
administration. We selected papers from over 50 submissions, showcasing
state-of-the-art work on topics including spam/email, intrusion and
vulnerability detection, security, system integrity, and more.

* New! Hit the Ground Running Track: Get a head start on key
technologies with 15-minute talks in the new Hit the Ground Running
Track. Imagine someone coming up to you and saying, "OK, here are the
top 5 things you have to know to get started with topic x. Here are the
acronyms you'll encounter, here are the two basic concepts, here are
some good Web sites and books you'll want to look at to get deeper into
this topic." You'll get all that and more from this new track.

* Bring your perplexing technical questions to experts at LISA's unique
Guru Is In sessions.

* And much more . . .

Explore the latest commercial innovations at the Vendor Exhibition.

Benefit from new opportunities for peer interaction around the topics
that mean the most to you.
