Auckland has secured the rights to host the linux.conf.au 2015. Call for Proposals is now open until the 13 July.

If you are involved with open source in general, or know someone who is involved, please consider participating either as an attendee or a speaker. 

"The conference is a meeting place for the free and open source software communities. It will be held in Auckland at the University of Auckland Business School from Monday 12 to Friday 16 January, 2015, and provides a unique opportunity for open source developers, students, users and hackers to come together, share new ideas and collaborate."


 

The linux.conf.au 2015 papers committee is looking for a broad range of proposals, and will consider submissions on anything from programming and software, to desktop, mobile, gaming, userspace, community, government, space, and education. There is only one rule:

 

Your proposal must be related to open source

 

This year, the papers committee is going to be focused on open source in education as well as our usual focus on deep technical content.

 

The conference is to a large extent what the speakers make it: if we receive heaps of excellent submissions on a topic, then it's sure to be represented at the conference. Here's a few ideas to get you started:

 

  • Clouds, datacenters and scalability.
  • Community challenges; legal threats; education and outreach.
  • Documentation for open source projects.
  • HTML5; multimedia codecs.
  • Kernel developments; new architectures.
  • Open hardware; embedded systems; wearable computing.
  • Security; privacy; anonymity.
  • Networking; Software defined networking; bufferbloat; network function virtualization.
  • Software development; programming languages.
  • Sysadmin and automation.

We're now in the last week of the CfP

See some great local contributions, but I'd love to see strong local participation in the conference.

One thing to note is that LCA is very much an Open Source conference these days and doesn't totally focus on Linux. Its one of the most respected volunteer run conferences and a great way to get current on a range of Open Source technologies.

There has been some requests for extension from potential speakers, and we want to make sure that everyone has a chance to have their proposal considered! Originally scheduled to be closed on Sunday 13th July, the papers committee has agreed to extend the deadline until midnight Sunday 20th July as we know there are more stories out there that deserve attention.

For those of you still considering submitting a proposal, there is only one rule:

 

Your proposal must be related to open source

 


This year the papers committee is going to be focused on open source in education as well as our usual focus on deep technical content.
