Hi Everyone,

So we've had some feedback that closing Call for Sessions whilst there is a
major election happening may not have been the best of ideas. In response
to the feedback we’ve extended the deadline to submit session/paper ideas
for linux.conf.au 2021 by a week. Please note that we are extending Call
for Sessions **only* *(not Miniconfs!)

Get them in by Friday 13 November (AoE) please folx!

Sidenote: we are absolutely blown away by the quality of submissions so far
and we can’t wait to bring this conference to life in January. Thank you to
those who did get their submissions in on time, we really do appreciate it
and we are looking at them as we speak.

Also, Watch this space as tickets will be going on sale soon and first
Keynote announcement isn't far away either!

>> Running a Miniconf (https://linux.conf.au/programme/miniconfs/) is a

>> Miniconfs will run on Saturday 23 January, before the main conference

>> No need to book flights or hotels
>> Don't forget: the conference will be a fully online, virtual experience.
