I understand your concern that the 7th of August CFP close is soon,
and that the CFP was only mentioned in the lca-announce list today. We
would like to have done it sooner.
Previously the CFP was announced on the Linux Australia list on the
15th of July, and on the 'linux.conf.au' Identica, Twitter and
Facebook presences. The lca2011 CFP also got a mention in LWN, Heise
Media, and other news sources, with more to come.
It's a shame you only discovered the CFP today. I'd encourage LA
people to tweet and blog about the lca2011 CFP now if they've not done
so already, so that news gets out to a wider audience.
If you're interested in submitting a proposal for a miniconf, poster
or paper, It's not too late. We'd be happy to receive it.
Follow the flow to Brisbane!
