Call for Volunteers: First Annual Linux and OSS in Government Miniconf

Thanks to a friendly sponsor, there will now be a fairly formal two-day
conference before linux.conf.au in January 2004 (in case anyone on this
list has been completely disconnected, a superb hackers conference will
be held in Adelaide next year, see http://lca2004.linux.org.au!)

Organising has just started, but is expected to progress very quickly.
Overall parameters:

	- aimed at Government IT management and practicioners

	- LCA will be providing support as they do for all the
	  miniconfs, from registration handling to sharing
	  infrastructure items where possible

	- The venue will be provided by Adelaide University, as part of
	  LCA sponsorship (the anticipated venue can cater for up to 400

	- AUUG are offering some organisational support, which should
	  make a lot of things happen more easily

	- AARNet and Adelaide Uni are offering networking and
	  webcasting facilities

	- It will be possible for people to purchase a ticket for just
	  this conference. Those with a ticket for LCA can come to this
	  (and any other miniconf) for no extra charge

Everything else is To Be Decided. Feel free to help with the deciding!

The Call For Papers design started today and must be out very soon,
because of the lead times these things require.

If you want to help go to

Note: the name of the conf could change.
