From the RedMonk Blog comes the the Operations Unconference, OpsCamp, in Austin on 1/30. 

…where attendees propose, discuss and debate issues related to operations and monitoring. Proposed topics include Automation, Monitoring, Configuration Management, Cloud Technologies, Agile Infrastructure, DevOps, Infrastructure as Code, ITSM/BSM or Visible Ops.

Seeing as Enterprise Project Management often is implemented hand in hand with operations optimization processes, this seemed topical.
