LUG17: Call for participation

The Lustre User Group conference invites presentation abstracts, due by February 26, 2017.

The Lustre User Group (LUG) conference is the primary venue for discussion and seminars on the Lustre parallel file system.

This year's conference is being held in Bloomington, Indiana May 30-June 2, 2017. Save the date - better yet, register by March 15 to secure early-bird registration rates! An overview agenda is now available.  Please see for more information.

The LUG Planning Committee is particularly seeking presentations on:
  • Experiences running the newer community releases - 2.8 and 2.9 - in production
  • Experiences using the new features in those releases (DNE2, SSK, UID/GID mapping, etc.)
  • Best practices and practical experiences in deploying, monitoring, and operating Lustre
  • Pushing the boundaries with non-traditional deployments

Submission guidelines
You only need an abstract for the submission process; we will request presentation materials once abstracts are reviewed and selected. Abstracts should be a minimum of 250 words and should provide a clear description of the planned presentation and its goals.

The abstract submission deadline is February 26, 2017, midnight (PST).

The submission web page for LUG 2017 is at:

You will need to create a user account on EasyChair if you don't already have one.

Please see for detailed submission guidelines.

We look forward to seeing you in Bloomington at LUG 2017!  

Best regards,
LUG Planning Committee
