AFS is seeing a flurry of development in the wake of it being open-sourced, and
ARLA is becoming a viable, stable project. There is more change in the AFS
community than has been seen in recent years.
The AFS workshop is the perfect place to discuss with other AFS-interested folks
the current and future progress of AFS. Attendees are expected to suggest topics
of discussionthese may be as developed as a mini-talk or as simple as questions
for the group. Topics discussed may direct AFS's future progress.
The workshop will be coordinated by Esther Filderman [Pittsburgh Supercomputing
Center], Derrick Brashear [Carnegie Mellon University], and Ted McCabe
[Massachusetts Institute of Technology]. Both Derrick and Ted are on the OpenAFS
Council of Elders, the advising board for OpenAFS development.
Interested in attending the workshop? Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org

All workshop attendees must be registered for the Annual Technical Conference.
