One of the best conferences I have ever attended was the 2007 VMWorld conference held in San Francisco. Part of this was probably because I was new to VMWare. The quantity and quality of the information shared was uniformly high. For a vendor sponsored conference, this is saying a lot.

However, most of the sessions I attended were presented by VMWare employees. I would like to see more user based presentations. In particular, VMWare experiences outside of the standard server consolidation usage pattern. With this being said, VMWare has issued a Call for Papers for the 2008 VMWorld to be held in Las Vegas on September 15-18, 2008.
