We are an engineering conference(lanman appears to be academic)
tied to Linux networking only. To get a sense, last schedule:

For selfish reason I hope we stay small because it is a lot more
intimate (but i worry because the attendance is growing).
Mainstream media doesnt fit well with our crowd. We talked to lwn
but unfortunately they couldnt send anyone. They will, however,
interview Van. An attendee wrote up something on Van's keynote:
Van's keynote I believe is _very influential_. NIC vendors were
present and I am sure you'll start seeing NICs supporting his ideas
in the very near future.

We are working on cleaning/cutting/editing videos - they should
be up soon. Likely the slides will go up first; then papers before
you see videos.

Next conference is in Prague Mar 20-22 2019. We do not accept
recycled talks - so if you are going on a "tour" start with us.
You can look at an option for submitting a tutorial perhaps.
