I'm pleased to announce the WIP session signup for BSDCan 2006.  Last 
year, the WIP session was very successful, with presentations on 
topics as diverse as new SSH implementations to BSD-based voicemail 
systems, and we hope to replicate that success this year.  The format 
remains essentially the same: in a one hour period, audiences are 
entertained and informed by a rapid fire series of short talks on 
interesting new or on-going work by individuals or groups.  Slides 
aer permitted, but not obligatory; pictures are highly recommended.  
Topic areas include new open source software projects, works in 
progress for future releases of existing projects, student projects, 
etc. WIP topics this year may make good conference papers next year!  

The number of slots is limited, and experience suggests there will be 
more takers than slots.  Sign up well in advance to be assured a 
spot.  Please e-mail <wip at bsdcan.org> to sign up.  Send a one or two 
paragraph summary of the topic to be presented, and the names of the 
person(s) presenting it. Also, please give a time estimate -- 
typically times will be one to five minutes.  The time limit will be 
strictly enforced -- you will be cut off if you try to run over!  The 
WIP e-mail registration deadline is May 6, after which remaining 
slots (if any) may be signed up for in person.  Any slides must be 
received by the WIP session chair by, at latest, May 11 at 11:59pm 
GMT.  The session chair this year is Robert Watson.
