Hello all,

It's time for LCA 2013 call for presentations (CFP). As most will know,
this is one of the worlds top three grass-roots Linux and Open Source
conferences. If anyone here is looking to put forward a paper, and would
like some practice by talking at PLUG first - let PLUG ctte know and
we'll try to accommodate. Speakers/presenters get free "professional"
admission to the conference, and some get assistance with travel and
accommodation... so the easiest way to get to the conf is to contribute
to it.

Please read on for the LCA2013 details.

= Got Something to Say About Open Source? =

linux.conf.au is shaping up to be a huge event, and they want your input!
Scheduled to be held at the Australian National University from 28 January to
2 February, 2013, the conference is designed to showcase the best of open
source and community-driven software and hardware. It provides a great
opportunity for open source developers, users, hackers, and makers to share
their ideas and further improve their projects.

The conference is now asking interested people and groups to submit proposals
for talks. This year, they are focusing on deep technical content, and the
things that you think are going to really matter in the future. Do you have
something to say about freedom and privacy, open source cloud systems, or
energy efficient server farms of the future? Or something else that you are
passionate about?

Michael Still, conference director, is excited about the potential for some
truly fascinating talks from a wide range of speakers, saying "to a large
extent, the conference is what the speakers make it".

All proposals will be submitted to the papers committee, this year headed by
Michael Davies, past conference director, and Mary Gardiner, co-founder of the
Ada Initiative. Successful proposals will be announced in August, 2012. 

If you have been working on something interesting, now is the time to tell the
world! Visit linux.conf.au, and submit your proposal today.
