they have added a NEW! track to be held on the 22nd
Introduction to the Open Source Xen Hypervisor
Todd Deshane and Patrick F. Wilbur, Clarkson University; Stephen Spector, Citrix
Who should attend:
System administrators and architects who are interested in deploying the open source Xen hypervisor in a production environment. No prior experience with Xen is required; however, a basic knowledge of Linux is helpful.
The Xen hypervisor offers a powerful, efficient, and secure feature set for virtualization of x86, x86_64, IA64, PowerPC, and other CPU architectures, and has been used to virtualize a wide range of guest operating systems, including Windows, Linux, Solaris, and various versions of the BSD operating systems. It is widely regarded as a strategically compelling alternative to proprietary virtualization platforms and hypervisors for x86 and IA64 platforms.
Take back to work:

• Xen architecture overview
• Building a Xen hypervisor from Xen.org
