This year we will be announcing our miniconferences in themed batches.
This is the first of those announcements:

Open source is at the core of cloud computing across the world. In 2011,
the Cloud Computing Outlook survey [1] reported that a whopping 97% of
respondents used some form of open source technology in their cloud

Cloud Infrastructure, Distributed Storage and High Availability: This
miniconference discusses how to build reliable infrastructure, from bare
metal deployment of cloud compute and storage systems, to applications
built on top of IaaS offerings. This is a core business to operations
engineers across the world, and an important aspect of cloud computing.

OpenStack: The OpenStack project was started by NASA and Rackspace, and
is now supported by a large number of companies including Red Hat,
Canonical, Suse, Hewlett Packard, AT&T, Cisco, Dell, and Yahoo! The
OpenStack miniconference will cover recent developments in the project,
and provides a chance to explore deployment strategies.

MobileFOSS: Mobile computing has come a long way in the past couple of
years. Thanks largely to open source, mobile smartphones and tablet
computers are well within the reach of ordinary consumers. This
miniconference discusses the mobile landscape, and how the open source
community can grow with it.
