The 19th International Conference for the open source software Samba will take place from 26th - 28th May 2020 as an online event. The planned IO-Lab is cancelled.
SambaXP is the annual meeting of the international Samba team with developers, users, manufacturers and system integrators within the Samba ecosystem, which has been held since 2002.
Due to the current COVID-19 situation and the associated travel and meeting restrictions, this year's conference unfortunately cannot take place at the usual venue in Göttingen. Therefore the organizing committee is planning a digital edition of the popular conference for this year.
The speakers will give their presentations live from their desks, so that participants can follow the conference from anywhere in the world via the Internet. Compared to the usual event format, the online event offers even more flexibility: It is easier to switch between tracks running in parallel or even follow two presentations at the same time. The event is recorded with consent of the speakers and will be available online after the conference.
The traditional tutorial by Stefan Kania will also be held as a webinar on the day before the conference (Tuesday, 25 May 2020). This year's topic: "Clustering with CTDB".
The IO-Lab, which is planned for the first time in the context of this year's SambaXP unfortunately cannot take place due to the current circumstances.
