Topic:  A Tour through the 386BSD Operating System Kernel

      A "guided" tour through 386BSD will be presented, detailing the major
      functional subsystems (virtual memory, filesystem, interprocess
      communication, process control, exception handling and system calls)
      of the kernel. Those deeply interested may wish to bring their PC
      with 386BSD source to look on during the talk. As this is only a
      short talk, the structure and highlights of design will be the prime
      objective, with driver and operational considerations the secondary

      Mr. Jolitz is also responsible for the concept and development of
      386BSD, a version of Berkeley UNIX for the 386-based IBM PC. 386BSD
      is intended to be a "living example" of modern operating systems
      paradigms as expressed in Mr.  Jolitz's current article series and
      pending book.

      Mr. Jolitz attended the University of California, Berkeley.  While at
      the University, Mr.  Jolitz assisted other early UNIX developers,
      such as Bill Joy, to release 2 and 4 BSD.
