planned IO-Lab is cancelled.

SambaXP is the annual meeting of the international Samba team with
developers, users, manufacturers and system integrators within the Samba
ecosystem, which has been held since 2002.
Due to the current COVID-19 situation and the associated travel and
meeting restrictions, this year's conference unfortunately cannot take
place at the usual venue in Göttingen. Therefore the organizing
committee is planning a digital edition of the popular conference for
this year.

The speakers will give their presentations live from their desks, so
that participants can follow the conference from anywhere in the world

running in parallel or even follow two presentations at the same time.
The event is recorded with consent of the speakers and will be available
online after the conference.

The traditional tutorial by Stefan Kania will also be held as a webinar
on the day before the conference (Tuesday, 25 May 2020). This year's
topic: "Clustering with CTDB".
