linux.conf.au issues call for papers for LCA2010
linux.conf.au announced the opening of its Call for Papers for LCA2010. The linux.conf.au is a technical conference about Free and Open Source Software, held annually in Australasia since 1999 - covering everything from the Linux Kernel and the BSDs to OpenOffice.org, from networking to audio-visual magic, from hardware hacks to Creative Commons.

The coming linux.conf.au, LCA2010, will be held at the Wellington Convention Centre in Wellington, New Zealand from Monday 18 January to Saturday 23 January 2010. LCA2010 is the second time linux.conf.au has been held in New Zealand, with the first being Dunedin in 2006.

"The presentations that make up our programme are important to linux.conf.au, they give our speakers an excellent opportunity to inform a highly technical audience about the new advances they've made," says Andrew Ruthven, LCA2010 Director. "We're proud of hosting LCA2010 in Wellington, New Zealand and look forward to seeing an exciting array of presentation and tutorial submissions, that not only educate our delegates but also challenge and motivate them."

IT businesses, government and community groups from around the world will also have the opportunity to showcase their work through presentations, displays and demonstrations at the LCA2010 Open Day, which will be held on Saturday 23 January 2010. The conference will open its doors to the general public and highlight the best of breed Free and Open Source technology.

Benjamin Mako Hill is the first confirmed speaker. He has a reputation in the free software world, with significant contributions to Debian, Ubuntu and OLPC across a variety of areas including development, policy, advocacy, activism, education and writing. He is an active board member with several non-profit organisations including The Free Software Foundation and Software Freedom International, and he is involved in the global discussion of copyright, software patents and free culture.

LCA2010 is affordable for professionals and hobbyists alike, thanks to generous sponsorship by leading proponents of free and open source software, and because the conference much like the software is largely organised by volunteers. The organisation is also looking for sponsorship to support the conference.

Registrations to LCA2010 will open to delegates in September 2009.
