On behalf of the Linux Australia council and the community in general
I would like to send out a big congratulations to the linux.conf.au
I think they are doing an amazing job in dealing with an extremely
difficult situation. Now, with a change of venue they are effectively
having to plan a linux.conf.au in one week instead of 12 months.
Having worked with the team in our council meetings over the last few
months I know that they are more than up to the challenge and that
linux.conf.au 2011 will yet again be the amazing conference we
have all come to know and love.
President, Linux Australia

Should Urbanest be unavailable - backup accommodation has been confirmed at the residential colleges at the University of Queensland (Near St Leo's). Delegates who are not staying at St Leo's or Urbanest should check with their accommodation provider on availability, prior to travelling.

We expect to announce a confirmed venue by Wednesday evening - but please remember we do have back up plans here and lca2011 is going ahead. There may be some changes in the schedule but it will be a great conference nonetheless.
