LOGIN 2009 call for speakers

LOGIN 2009

The LOGIN 2009 conference has opened its call for speakers. I’m posting about it months before the deadline, so no excuses this time. :)

This is easily the best conference I’ve been to each of the past few years. The sessions are top notch and because it’s a smaller conference it’s much easier to get to know your fellow attendees.

I am leading the technical track this year, and looking for talks on all of the following:

Live game operations:

  • Collecting crash reports and log files
  • Deployment procedures
  • Cluster Management
  • Providing data APIs to third parties
  • Data-mining

Large-Scale server architecture:

  • Low-level scaling tips on Linux and Windows
  • AI techniques for MMOs
  • Memory Management for long-running servers
  • Design Patterns for scalability
  • Chat filtering for spam and content
  • Embedding the latest scripting languages
  • Area of Interest tracking and bandwidth optimization

Client Technologies

  • Developing cross-platform clients
  • Client memory management issues
  • Challenges of browser-based clients
  • Keeping download sizes small and patch times short

Next-generation technology

  • Dynamic environments and their impact on bandwidth and AIs
  • XML or Object databases as an alternative to relational DBs
  • The impact of many-core processors on server and client architectures

I would love to see talks submitted on every topic above, but if you have a fantastic technical lecture burning a hole in your pocket, feel free to submit it even if it’s not on the list. There are similar lists of topics in the Design, Legal, Business/Globalization, and Community tracks. We’re looking for all the best sessions in those areas too.

If you are going to submit a session, the sooner you do it the better. Almost everybody waits for the last minute so we get a flood of submissions right before the deadline (and even some right after the deadline.)  Submitting early gives us a chance to look at your session when it’s one of a few submitted. If you wait for the end your session will compete for attention with the hundreds of other people who waited for the last minute.
