participating in this devroom!**

Call for Participation

The Containers & Process Isolation devroom will feature sessions around
Containers virtualization and Process Isolation, with topics to include open
source container technologies and process isolation.

This devroom will host presentations and labs that focus on topics of shared
interest, such as Linux containers, FreeBSD Jails, Solaris Zones, capsicum,
seccomp, sandboxing, and scaling across hundreds or thousands of servers.

Presentations in this devroom will be aimed at developers working on these
platforms who are looking to collaborate and improve shared infrastructure
or solve common problems.

The devroom organizers will seek topics that encourage dialog between
projects and continued work post-FOSDEM.
