UKOUG 2007: Abstracts redux
This week I have been looking at the database server papers. The usual suspects - tuning, RAC, RMAN - are present in the usual numbers. But there are some new hot topics (several people submitting papers in the same vein) for the database too. They are:
- Data and Audit Vault
- Linux administration
- 11g New Features
Hmmm, there must be a good reason why we haven't had papers on that last one before now....
Evaluating the abstracts is an interesting exercise. We get to see the range of topics which people feel strongly about (because nobody bothers to volunteer to spend the time and effort to talk about something which bores them). And those of us who have also submitted papers get to size up the opposition.
