2006 - Dunedin, NZ!
linux.conf.au is the annual Australian Linux technical conference, and is
one of the largest gatherings of users and developers of Free and Open
Source Software in the Southern Hemisphere. It is an opportunity for
developers and groups to present their ideas amongst peers, and for the Free
Software and Open Source communities to gather in general.
Registrations are open!
The 2006 conference is being held in Dunedin, New Zealand, at The University
of Otago. More information can be found on the conference website:
The organisers of linux.conf.au 2006 are proud to finally announce
that registrations are open.
Keynote speakers at the conference are Mark Shuttleworth (instigator
of the Ubuntu Linux distribution), Sudhakar "Thaths" Chandrasekharan
(co-founder of Linux India), and Damian Conway (Perl 6 Developer and
Guru). Some of the other speakers presenting at linux.conf.au 2006
are listed on http://linux.conf.au/speakers.php. This list will grow
as more speakers confirm their acceptance to present at linux.conf.au,
so check back from time to time.
Like previous years the response to the call for papers was
overwhelming, with over 150 paper and tutorial submissions received.
Selection of the successful submissions was very difficult!
Registration fees for linux.conf.au 2006 will be: AU$690 for
professional delegates, AU$300 for hobbyist delegates, and a low AU$100
for students. An early bird discount of AU$172 for professional
delegates and AU$75 for hobbyist delegates is available for those who
register and pay before November 18th 2005 (This brings the prices
down to AU$517.50 and AU$225 respectively).
Registration for linux.conf.au includes admission to the two days of
mini-conferences preceding linux.conf.au. We'll be announcing the
miniconfs very soon, so stay tuned!
Anyway, without further ado, it's time for you to direct your browser
... And register so you can join us in January! See you there!
Please feel free to forward this announcement to your local LUG, or any
other person or group that would be interested!
