What is linux.conf.au?

linux.conf.au (LCA) is an open source conference. It brings together Linux and open source enthusiasts and is the biggest conference of its kind in the southern hemisphere. More information about the conference is at http://linux.conf.au/

Miniconfs (miniature conferences) are community-organised sessions designed to bring together like-minded delegates with interests in a specific field. They are run within the framework of the broader LCA event, and provide excellent opportunities for professional networking and developing presentation experience.

Unfortunately, financial assistance is not available for miniconf speakers.
