I haven't seen mention of this announcement on the linux-aus list, so I 
just want to make sure that y'all are aware that the LCA 2012 call for 
papers is now open.

Dear All,

The organisers of LCA2012 are very pleased to announce that we are now
accepting paper submissions! Papers from all areas of the Free and Open
Source world are welcome and first time speaks are highly encouraged to
submit a proposal. The Call for Papers will remain open until the 29th
July 2011, after which time all submissions will be reviewed and
successful speakers notified. Once confirmed, details of talks will be
added to the conference programme, available on this site in mid to late

"Though there are many elements needed to run a great conference, it is
the speakers that truly make linux.conf.au <http://linux.conf.au> such
an amazing event. Being an international conference, but one with a
uniquely Australian flavour, we are working to bring a terrific mix of
both local and global speakers from different backgrounds to Ballarat in
January", says Sae Ra Germaine, LCA2012 Speakers liaison. "The wealth of
talent within the FOSS community is huge and our goal is to be a
platform for bringing the newest ideas, latest talent and best speakers
to the largest audience of this type in the country."

     * Information for potential speakers is available on the LCA2012
       website <http://linux.conf.au/programme/papers>
     * Our speaker liaison can also be contacted for any specific
       queries: speakers at lcaunderthestars.org.au
       <mailto:speakers at lcaunderthestars.org.au>
     * Proposal submissions can be made at
       http://linux.conf.au/programme/submit_a_paper (Need to be logged

Our call for mini-conferences remains open in addition to the call for
papers. Please see the announcement here

       About linux.conf.au <http://linux.conf.au>

linux.conf.au <http://linux.conf.au> (lca) is a conference about Open
Source Software, including Linux. It brings together the world's
community of Linux and open source enthusiasts who make considerable
contributions to open source software.

2012 marks a significant milestone for LCA as it will be the first time
the conference has been held in an Australian regional city. The 2012
Ballarat organising committee is excited to be hosting the open source
community and would love for you to join us in January.

Kindest Regards,

Sae Ra
