quite a number of teams well on the way to putting together a bid. But
that doesn't mean there isn't room for more.

If you've ever sat in the back of a LUG meeting or LCA talk and had a quick
chat to someone about running an LCA now is the time to put that idea into
action. If you were the person two seats back listening in, go bug that person
to put in a bid :).

The first thing to to do is to send an email to council at
to let them know you are thinking of submitting a bid. You should also
CC linux-aus at, this might help you find other people keen
on helping you out.

Once you've finalised your bid document then please send to
council at and linux-aus at

Once you've done that here are two documents to help you get started.


The first outlines what is required for the bid process, while the
second give a fairly detailed overview of the sorts of things you need
to think about when preparing to run an LCA.

If you are thinking of bidding, please put your hand up sooner rather
than later so that the council can make sure you get the support you
need to prepare a high quality bid.

Happy bidding!!

P.S. Please forward this announcement onto local LUG lists and anywhere else
you think is relevant.
