Subject: Exim conference 2008 -- Preliminary Announcement and Call for Papers
Exim conference, April 2008
A few months back, an Exim / e-mail conference was proposed.
but it didn't go ahead because not enough people were interested.
At the recent Exim course given by Philip Hazel in Cambridge we asked
again, and there's been a lot more interest (partly because timing is
better, partly because Philip's course won't be run anymore) so the
Conference will go ahead now in 2008.

E-Mail Systems Conference 2008
(Exim and other mail systems)
Preliminary Announcement and Call for Papers
This conference is being run with the cooperation of the UKUUG
-- the UK's Unix and Open Systems User Group. The UKUUG
conference takes place immediately before the E-Mail Systems
conference, on Tue/Wed 1/2 April 2008, at the same venue. The
themes of the UKUUG conference are Virtualization and Dynamic
Purpose of Conference:
The aim of the conference is to provide:
* A forum to discuss practical experiences using Exim
and other e-mail systems, for a wide range of users, from ISPs
to tiny sites.
* Tutorials for various levels of expertise.
* A venue for the community, for informal networking and
* A focus for the Exim developers, especially now that Philip
Hazel, the creator and lead developer is retiring. We will
provide meeting facilities for all those interested in
getting involved in maintaining and developing Exim.
The last conference (2005), was solely about Exim. This time
we have broadened the theme because many topics -- issues with
very large mail systems, spam filtering, resilience of mail
systems, mail server clustering, mail performance, running
message stores, techniques, etc. -- are common to all, and we
want as broad a community as possible to participate.
Call for papers, tutorials, BOF topics

biographical note, to exim08-speakers (at) uit.co.uk. Talks
