We're excited! The linux.conf.au 2021 Call for Sessions and Call for
Miniconfs are now open. They will stay open until 6th November 2020
Anywhere on Earth
(AoE) (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anywhere_on_Earth). This is only 3
weeks away - so don't delay, get your talks in early!

Our theme is "So what's next?".

We all know we're living through unprecedented change and uncertain
times. How can open source play a role in creating, helping and adapting
to this ongoing change? What new developments in software and coding can
we look forward to in 2021 and beyond?

If you have ideas or developments you'd like to share with the open
source community at linux.conf.au, we'd love to hear from you.

Call for Sessions

The main conference runs on Sunday 24 and Monday 25 January, with
multiple streams catering for a wide range of interest areas.

We invite you to submit a session
(https://linux.conf.au/programme/sessions/) proposal for a talk. Talks
are generally 35-45 minute presentations on a single topic presented in
lecture format.

Call for Miniconfs

Miniconfs are dedicated day-long streams focusing on single topics,
creating a more immersive experience for delegates than a session. We
encourage you to get creative with how you could deliver your Miniconf

Running a Miniconf (https://linux.conf.au/programme/miniconfs/) is a
great way to gain experience, provide exposure for your project or
topic, and raise your professional profile. They're a crowd favourite
and an awesome way to kick off the conference.

Miniconfs will run on Saturday 23 January, before the main conference
commences on Sunday.

No need to book flights or hotels

Don't forget: the conference will be a fully online, virtual experience.
This means our speakers will be beaming in from their own homes or
workplaces. The organising team will be able to help speakers with their
tech set-up. Each accepted presenter will have a tech check prior to the
event to smooth out any difficulties and there will be an option to
pre-record presentations.

Have we piqued your interest?
