    Dear z/VM, z/VSE, and Linux on IBM Z Systems Professionals, Students, and Enthusiasts,

    We continue to plan for an in-person event June 10 -12. The planning committee is poised to pivot to a virtual event if required. A final live/virtual event decision will be made mid-April.

    Registration Open
    Registration is open and will be required whether the event is in person or virtual. You can register at this link. Please note that we have a very attractive refund policy, in that your registration fees are fully refundable. So take advantage of our Early Bird Rate of $100 which will end on April 30, 2021.

    Looking for Speakers
    Whether we go live or virtual, we still would like you to share your stories, discoveries, and victories. Have you wrestled a challenging problem to the ground? Managed to complete an upgrade that shouldn't have been that hard? Cobbled together some tools that allowed you to satisfy a management requirement? VM Workshop attendees would love to hear about it! Please submit a synopsis to the Program Committee for consideration. By the same token, if you would like to hear how your colleagues dealt with a specific issue, submit a suggestion for a session topic.

    Students Welcome
    If you are, or know students who might be interested in mainframe careers, please let them know that Student registration for the full conference is only $10. See the registration page for more information. Furthermore, if you already have some mainframe experience to share, including how you discovered it, or a project you tackled, we would love to hear from you too.

    Your z/VM, z/VSE, and Linux on IBM Z colleagues look forward to seeing you in June 2021!

    Hello VM Workshop Followers,

    After much discussion and debate, the initial schedule for this years' free of charge Virtual VM Workshop event is now available, and registration is open.  The Virtual VM Workshop will be held on June 10 – 11.  Please note that every person attending must register individually.  This reduces administrative complexity should a reservation need to be cancelled. Please note that we have a limited number of virtual seats, so we suggest you sign up early. You can register using this link.  The tentative presentation list and schedule can be found here.  Visit this link often to find any changes or additions to the schedule.

    We look forward to seeing you on-line in June, and in person at Binghamton University in 2022.
