AsiaBSDCon is a conference for users and developers on BSD based systems. The next conference will be held in Taipei, Taiwan, in 21-24 March, 2024. The conference is for anyone developing, deploying and using systems based on FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, DragonFlyBSD, Darwin and MacOS X. AsiaBSDCon is a technical conference and aims to collect the best technical papers and presentations available to ensure that the latest developments in our open source community are shared with the widest possible audience.
Abstracts and papers should be submitted electronically in PDF format. Go to the submission page. You have to create your account of EasyChair, an external service first. After you get an account, follow the instructions on the submission page.
Please enter details of your travel to Taipei because the technical program committee will support the airfare and hotel accommodation fee of the accepted speakers. Note that this support is limited to one speaker for each paper. If a paper has multiple authors, please make it clear who will be the speaker. If you can cover your all or a part of travel expense, please let us know. It will be recognized as donation from you because it will be greatly helpful for the organizing team. The technical program committee will send the necessary documents if an accepted speaker needs a visa application to visit Taiwan. And if you need financial support for reasons such as being a full-time student, please contact .
The initial submission of your paper must be in the form of a complete paper or an extended abstract between 2 and 12 pages long (A4 paper) in English. Use IEEE conference proceedings template for your paper. While there is no particular limitation for the abstract, submissions that are much beyond this template, such as too long, too short, or talk proposals with no associated paper will be rejected. Submissions should be written from a strong technical background and should clearly demonstrate that:
Include appropriate references to establish that you are familiar with related work, and where possible, provide detailed data to establish that you have a working implementation or measurement tool. Submissions will be judged on the quality of the written submission and whether or not the work is of interest to the community. Business development or marketing pieces are not appropriate for submission.
All of the authors will be notified by 22 December 2023. All accepted submissions will be expected to produce a final paper for publication in the proceedings and electronic files for the conference website by 5 February, 2024. The final paper should describe work that has been completed as of the time of their submission. If necessary, members of the program committee will help shepherd authors through the writing process prior to final acceptance for publication in the proceedings.
Note that each accepted paper must be presented by at least one author. All papers should be considered 'open source', and as such, non-disclosure agreements and other limits will require us to return the paper.
If you have questions or encounter problems or want to discuss potential submissions and for inquiries regarding the content of the conference program, please send electronic mail to the program chair at
AsiaBSDCon offers full and half-day tutorials on a range of topics from experts in the BSD community. Topics range from how the kernel works to administering and securing BSD systems.
To provide the best possible tutorial offerings, we continually solicit proposals for new tutorials. If you are interested in presenting a tutorial, submit a proposal. A tutorial proposal submission will be handled in the same way as a paper submission. The acceptance will be notified by 22 December 2024.
