An Applied Technology Conference
Developers, Administrators,
Users and IT Decision Makers

What is it?

Linux Bangalore/2001 is a three day conference on understanding and using Linux technologies. This conference aims to cover a large number of areas that include core Linux technologies, Open Source, Embedded Systems and other allied technologies.

Target Audience

The primary audience for this event will be the core (or potential) Linux-using community of developers (/dev), system administrators (/adm), users (/usr) and CxO/Managers/Decision makers (/cxo).


Each track will include introductory, technical, how-to and tutorial sessions, catering to "newbies" (people new to Linux) to "gurus" (people who know Linux in and out).

New technologies and their implementation/application under Linux will be discussed as well, making this a technology conference to remember.

In addition to this, we also intend to provide assistance to new users and more information to technology enthusiasts.

The event is for three days, with multiple tracks and with six sessions every day from 10 am to 5 pm, plus Birds-of-Feather (BoF) sessions at the end of the day. There will be an estimated 70 talks. In addition we plan to hold separate workshops, tutorials, case studies and demonstrations.

Speakers for this event will be drawn from the Indian Linux community, as well as the IT industry.

Entry F(r)ee

We have decided to make entry free for all. We feel that it is the present student community that is going to drive the phenomenal growth of Linux in the days to come and it would be doing injustice if they find the event costs prohibitive.

At the same time, we see no need to make employees run to their managers to get budget approval just so that they can attend this event. As long as you can get an approval for $0/Rs.0 from your company, you can attend!


This event will be organized between December 10 and 12, 2001 at the J. N. Tata auditorium at IISc in Bangalore, India.
