We would like to encourage people to submit talks for the
Configuration Management devroom, which is being held at FOSDEM on
Saturday, February 1.

We are looking for talks from real world case studies, brainstorming
and hacking around configuration and systems management from complex
virtual environments and cloud computing to desktops and laptops.
There is huge interest in automation, monitoring, performance
management, configuration management, and DevOps. We are looking for
presentations from people who are working in the field on these
* Configuration and Systems Management theory & principles
* Configuration and Systems Management tools - with an emphasis on
real world use cases
* Techniques and case studies
* Audit, Compliance and Security
* Various DevOps topics, including collaboration and training tips.
