[plug] EmacsConf APAC version

Hello everyone,

EmacsConf is the conference about the joy of Emacs, Emacs Lisp, 
and memorising key bindings.

The 2021 Edition will take place 27th-28th November online, and 
the CFP is open until 30th September 

If you have never heard of Emacs, it is an extensible 
self-documenting Lisp environment disguised as a text editor.  You 
can use it as vi (<https://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/Evil>), to take 
notes and plan your days (<https://orgmode.org/>), send emails 
(like this one), browse the web 
(<https://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/eww>), as a window manager 
(<https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/EXWM>), or even unleash the 
power of butterflies (<https://xkcd.com/378/>).

EmacsConf is a conference for people of all levels and 
backgrounds.  In my view the 2020 Edition was one of the best 
organised online conferences.  You can find more about the 
conference by checking out artefacts from the 2019 
(<https://emacsconf.org/2019/schedule/>) and 2020 
(<https://emacsconf.org/2020/schedule/>) editions.

As is often the case, the timing of the 2021 conference is 
unfavourable to us poor Antipodeans (9am-5pm American Eastern 
Standard time on either day, which translates to 1am-9am 
Australian Eastern Daylight Saving Time), and to a lesser extent 
the rest of the APAC region.  But worry not, as the timing also 
provides a perfect opportunity for us to take over once they are 
done, at least on Sunday 28th November. The EmacsConf organisers 
are indeed considering an "off-hour" session taking place during 
Australian day time on 28th November, and I am working with them 
on this.

To that end, I would like to understand the level of interest. 
Are you interested in giving a talk at EmacsConf?  Would you like 
the Saturday talks restreamed during day time on Sunday?  If 
there's restreaming, would you like the possibility of speakers 
being present for live Q&As?  Please let me know (hi at ypei.me). If 
you would like to give a talk, feel free to also submit your 
propsal directly (<https://emacsconf.org/2021/submit/>).
