You can visit the Common website at for more information.  Common describes the conference as follows:

“The Annual Meeting is COMMON’s largest educational event of the year, with in-depth IBM i, AIX, and Linux-related education including all-day pre-conference workshops, open labs, and a wide variety of regular-length sessions. It is the annual meeting of the COMMON membership and the largest gathering of the Power Systems user community.

It will kick-off with the Opening Session on Sunday, May 15, 2016, followed by four full days of education. Take a look at all the Sessions and Educational Choices that will be available: Online Session Guide.  The fun and exciting Closing Reception caps things off on Wednesday, May 18, 2016. Of course, as is expected from all COMMON conferences, there will be plenty of social and networking events taking place throughout the week.

 Rumor has it that IBM will announce V7.3 at the event and there is something identified as “iNext” as part of the announcement.  Time will tell! 

Silveredge hopes to see you there!
