And to confirm, we are taking expressions of interests from teams and
individuals keen to be involved in running LCA2017 :-). We'd like to
hear from people interested early so that we can help you through the
bid processes.

The more people bidding the better. Not everybody wins the conference on
their first bid attempt so it's good to have competition and keep
returning for future years.
