USENIX, the Advanced Computing Systems Association, Announces Open Public Access to All Its Conference Proceedings

Since 1975, the USENIX Association has brought together the community of engineers, system administrators, scientists, and technicians working on the latest advances in the computing world. USENIX has delivered innumerable industry "firsts" at past conferences, including ONYX, the first attempt at UNIX hardware; the launch of the first UNIX product by Digital Equipment Corporation; the first paper on Sendmail by Eric Allman; the first Perl presentation by Tom Christiansen; and the first report on Oak, which later became Java.

"The USENIX conference proceedings are highly coveted documents that contain tomorrow's innovations," said Ellie Young, Executive Director, USENIX. "By making the papers immediately available to all, USENIX removes all barriers to accessing information about the latest computing advances."

In 2008, USENIX will present over 20 conferences and workshops, including the upcoming 5th USENIX Symposium on Networked Systems Design and Implementation, the 2008 USENIX Annual Technical Conference, the 17th USENIX Security Symposium, the 2008 USENIX/ACCURATE Electronic Voting Technology Workshop, and the 22nd Large Installation System Administration Conference.
