The Linux Symposium is a technology conference, targeting software developers working on the Linux kernel, OS infrastructure, security, networking, and any related research projects.

With attendees coming from over 30 different countries, the Symposium is the single most comprehensive collection of Linux experts. Our speakers have included such key developers as: Alan Cox, David S. Miller, Andrew Morton, Dr. Stephen Tweedie and many others. We have even been lucky enough to have Linus Torvalds attend.

Join your coworkers, friends, and the rest of the Linux Community for four days of talks, tutorials, BOFS, and plenty of social events. We look forward to seeing you in June!
