linux.conf.au 2018 will be held at the University of Technology Sydney from
22-26 January 2018.

The Kernel Miniconf is returning once again and the CFP is now open!

What is the Kernel Miniconf?

LCA's miniconfs are one-day special interest streams that allow in depth
discussion of particular topics.

The Kernel Miniconf will feature a variety of talks and discussions on
kernel and systems programming topics, including technical talks on current
kernel developments and kernel community/process. Past Kernel Miniconfs
have included talks on various aspects of the kernel such as networking,
filesystems, power management, and so on, as well as community issues such
as licensing.

The focus of the miniconf will primarily be on the Linux kernel, however
interesting submissions about other Free Software kernels are welcome and
encouraged. It's anticipated that most talks will be aimed at people with
existing kernel and low-level programming experience, however anyone is
welcome no matter what their level of experience. There will be a lightning
talks/open discussion session at the end of the day.

Who can attend?

Anyone with an LCA ticket can attend. A limited number of miniconf-only day
tickets may be available - contact me for further details.

Who can speak?

Anyone with something interesting and kernel-related to say! You will need
to have an LCA ticket though - unfortunately miniconf speakers don't
qualify for speakers' tickets. (Please contact me if that's a problem for
you and we may be able to find some options.)

We strongly encourage both first-time and seasoned speakers from all
backgrounds, ages, genders, nationalities, ethnicities, religions and
abilities. Like the main LCA conference itself, we respect and encourage
diversity at our miniconf. If you would like any assistance with creating a
proposal, don't hesitate to ask!
