LAD 21

DateSeptember 28-30, 2021
VenueOnline webinar

Lustre Admins & Devs Workshop is a great opportunity for Lustre worldwide administrators and developers to gather and exchange their experiences, developments, tools, good practices and more.

To avoid possible inconvenience in the case of a new upsurge in the COVID19 pandemic or due to restrictions on international travels, we find it preferable to make LAD21 a virtual event again this year.

Pre-recorded presentations will be aired online from September 28th to September 30th. To provide maximum coverage of the different time zones, sessions will be broadcast twice a day, once at 8AM UTC (10AM CEST), and once at 4PM UTC (6PM CEST). A chat platform will make it possible to ask questions about presentations, discuss with speakers and other members of the Lustre community.


Registration is open! It is free of charge.

There is one distinct registration for 8AM UTC sessions and 4PM UTC sessions:


Each presentation will be followed by a Q&A session (+ break) of 5 minutes.

Q&A sessions will take place on Zulip (you will receive an invitation to the chat room after registering for the webinar).
