     9== Porting KGI graphics drivers from Linux to GNU Hurd ==
     11Title: Porting KGI graphics drivers from Linux to GNU Hurd
     13Speaker: Olaf Buddenhagen
     15Type: Talk, possibly with small demonstration
     17Duration: <30 Min.
     21GGI/KGI is a graphics driver framework, offering a clear seperation between
     22actual hardware access and abstraction. The hardware access part was
     23originally a kernel driver for monolithic UNIX kernels like Linux and
     24FreeBSD. This talk is about porting that framework, to work with the
     25hardware access part running as a userspace server process on top of the
     26multiserver microkernel system GNU Hurd.
     28After a short introduction to GGI/KGI and Hurd architecture, this talk will
     29dwell a bit on the interesting aspects of porting the kernel driver to run
     30as a userspace process instead.
     37== Instroduction to RTEMS: A Real-Time OS for Embedded Applications ==
     39estimate 30 minutes
     41This session gives an overview over the RTEMS project, its distinc features, goals, typical applications and current capabilities. It sketches general requirements for realtime applications, basic RTEMS features, the structural differences between a Linux based and an RTEMS based application, available APIs, available subsystems and the driver models.
     43The goal of this session is to emphasis the distinct requirements addressed in RTEMS compared to UNIX-like OSes. This should be a good base for further discussions on colaboration with other projects.
     45== DDE --- Generic Porting of Device Drivers ==
     46Speaker: Dirk Vogt
     47Duration: 15 minutes
     49This talk will give a short presentation of the Device Driver
     50Environment (DDE), a library that helps porting Linux and FreeBSD device
     51drivers to other operating systems.
     53The DDE is divided into two parts, the DDEkit, a generic operating
     54system abstraction layer, and guest-specific DDE's (currently available
     55for Linux 2.6 and FreeBSD) allowing to run unmodified Linux and FreeBSD
     56device drivers.  Currently there exist implementations for TUD:OS(1), an
     57L4 microkernel based operating system developed at TU Dresden and the
     58Genode operating system framework (2) developed by Genode Labs (Dresden)
     59(3). There are also plans to port the DDE to Minix 3(4).
     66== Network virtualisation using Crossbow technology ==
     67Speaker: Uros Nedic
     68 * duration   45min
     70 * activity title   Network virtualisation using Crossbow technology
     72 * a short abstract
     74   Leveraging current hardware capacities becomes one ofthe mayor topics in current IT business. Designing toolsfor deploying network virtualization and effectivelycontrolling virtual network environments from the perspectiveof network capacities raised demand for a project called Crossbow.
     75   With this technology we could effectively control how anapplication access to the network and decide how much bandwidthit could use. Also, we could dynamically allocate bandwidthresources giving to the application surplus if needed on behalfof other(s) application(s) whose network resources are underutilized.
     76   This is done by creating Virtual Network Interface Cards (VNICs)and dedicating each of them to the different application we want todeploy. In this presentation we'll show how Crossbow technology workin practice deployed on OpenSolaris.

     85== Olaf Buddenhagen ==
     87Olaf Buddenhagen AKA antrik, born 1980, living in Berlin.
     89Started hacking around 1993, using free software since 2000. Following GNU
     90Hurd and KGI projects on and off since 2001, and getting more and more
     91involved in Hurd development since 2004.
     93Master thesis on porting KGI to the Hurd.
     97== Speaker: Dirk Vogt ==
     99Dirk Vogt has just finished his master's degree in computer science at
     100TU Dresden working on TUD:OS.  During his studies he implemented a USB
     101stack for TUD:OS.  For the next half year he will work in Amsterdam
     102implementing a USB stack for Minix 3.
