Simple -- you get them to invite you to give a talk, or you
submit a paper that is good enough to be accepted for presentation at
the conference. The first time I was successful at doing this for
LISA was at LISA 2000, with my talk "The Design and Implementation of
Highly Scalable E-Mail Systems".
How can an individual that has passed beyond "student" status afford the
costs of LISA? I'm already a Usenix member in good standing, but even at
those rates, to attend the whole week is quite expensive for an
individual. (It's about equal to my rent here in NYC which isn't cheap)
I will be speaking again at LISA 2002, this time on "Domain Name
Server Comparison: BIND 8 vs. BIND 9 vs. djbdns vs. ???", and
according to the page at
<http://www.usenix.org/events/lisa02/tech/techwed.html>, they would
appear to have given me ninety minutes of time. Interesting, when I
first submitted the proposal, they asked me if I preferred a short
(20 min) slot or a long (30 min) slot. And they never did tell me
how much time I would be getting....
