From May 10th to 12th 2016 the SerNet GmbH and the <link https: www.samba.org external-link-new-window>international Samba Team will host the SAMBA eXPerience. The 15th edition of the conference comes along with an innovation: For the first time Berlin will be the place for developers and users from around the world to meet. Sale of "Early Bird" tickets has started already.
"By moving our long established conference to Berlin, we're experimenting a little and looking forward to it", says Chen-Yu Lin, event manager at SerNet. Additionally the organizing committee meets with a wish expressed by the participants. Lin: "Most of our guests have a long journey ahead of them in order to attend the sambaXP. Berlin makes it easier for them and – as an overall attractive venue – may garner additional interest from new participants." The conference hotel RAMADA Berlin Alexanderplatz (Karl-Liebknecht-Str 32nd , 10178 Berlin) is centrally located and "moreover, it is very close to SerNet's Berlin offices", says Lin.
The "Call for Papers" section at <link http: www.sambaxp.org external-link-new-window>sambaxp.org offers all information about the conference topics and more details. Abstracts can be submitted until February 29th. Technical presentations are welcome as are case studies. The conference language is English. However, the organizing team would be glad to see submissions in German or any other language as well.
"Early Bird" tickets for the two conference days are available at 399 Euros until February 29th. As usual the sambaXP kicks off on Tuesday (May 10th) with a tutorial: Tickets for "Managing Samba 4 as domain controllers and Implementing domain trusts" are priced 450 Euro.
John Terpstra is chairman of the sambaXP 2016 again. He is a founding member of the international Samba Team and highly respected author.
