It’s that time of year again.  That’s right, LUG 2012, the Lustre parallel file system’s premier conference that joins individuals both internationally and across a wide variety of disciplines, will take place in Austin, Texas from April 23-25. 

"LUG is the preeminent venue for users of the Lustre parallel file system, drawing individuals both internationally and across a variety of disciplines,” said Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s (ORNL’s) Technology Integration Group Leader Galen Shipman.

And because 2012 is a leap year, participants get an extra day to receive the $140 early registration discount.

"The LUG offers participants opportunities to share knowledge, ideas, and achievements with a diverse audience. We're anticipating an interesting program and would encourage you to be a part of it,” said Stephen Simms, Manager of High Performance File Systems at Indiana University.

To register for the event http://www.opensfs.org/lug/registration.

The LUG program committee would like to invite members of the Lustre community to submit presentation abstracts for inclusion in this year's meeting. It is not necessary to submit a technical paper, just an abstract of your proposed talk no more than a page in length. Talks should target a half an hour in length and reflect the work that you or your site are doing with Lustre. The deadline to submit presentation abstracts is February 14, 2012.  For questions or to submit a presentation abstract, send mail to submissions at lists.opensfs.org<mailto:submissions at lists.opensfs.org> or contact the program committee chair, Stephen Simms (ssimms at indiana.edu<mailto:ssimms at indiana.edu>).

Anyone who has ever heard the word Lustre is encouraged to attend. Your participation is key to ensuring a stable, viable, and ever-improving Lustre file system. Simply put, all users represent the future of Lustre. By attending LUG, you and your employees will gain depth, perspective, and valuable knowledge to give you a step up in the competitive HPC world.

Besides two-and-a-half days of amazing speakers, technical sessions, and keystone networking experience, attendees will enjoy spring in Austin, Texas and will receive attendee gifts.

Attendees are recommended to fly in on the morning of Sunday, April 22nd, due to two great events planned for that evening. From 2-5 p.m. the Open Benchmark Working Group meeting will be open to the entire HPC community, while the Whamcloud and DDN event will take place from 6-10 p.m. (details will be posted soon).

Attendees are encouraged to fly out the evening of Wednesday, April 25th or the morning of April 26th, so that they can attend the OpenSFS general meeting, OpenSFS Technical Working Group Meeting, and the Community Development Working Group Meeting on Wednesday, April 25th from 1pm-5pm.

All events are open to all LUG attendees.
