The AFS Workshop, co-located with the USENIX Annual Technical Conference, brings together administrators and programmers to discuss the development and progress of AFS software, which is growing rapidly both in use and usability.
Previous AFS Workshops have covered such topics as methods of authentication, backups, client stability and configuration, replacing ubik, and future work on OpenAFS and Arla. As some of the key players in both OpenAFS and Arla attend the Workshops, these discussions can and do affect the course of development.
To apply to attend the AFS Workshop, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your email must contain at least one of the following:

Garry Zacheiss works with AFS at MIT as a member of the Athena Server Operations team. He also works with the OpenAFS project as a Gatekeeper. His spare time is spent living in sin with a quasi-sentient omnipotent relational database.
Derrick Brashear is a systems programmer with the Computing Services division of Carnegie Mellon University and is on the OpenAFS Council of Elders, the guiding body for OpenAFS development. He claims to have his fingers in too many pies.
