The Linux Plumbers 2013 Microconference-Virtualization track focuses on general Linux Virt and related technologies. There are quite a few active projects that encompass virtualization, and this forum will be available for developers to meet and collaborate.

The structure will be similar to what was followed the previous years, 2012, 2011 and 2010. The emphasis is on discussing unfinished projects and sticky topics, and this will be strictly followed. Expect sessions to be cut short by the session leaders if they veer into the ‘talk’ or ‘advertisement’ category.
