Hi everyone, 

 Don't forget to get you session proposal in for LCA2022! 

 While the pandemic has put us all into new and weird circumstances,
this could be a great source of interesting stories of learning and
adapting that your fellow community members would really benefit from

 Please give it a shot and submit your proposals! 



> The linux.conf.au 2022 Call for Sessions is now open. It will stay open 
> until 11:59pm 5 September 2021 Anywhere on Earth (AoE).
> The theme for 2022 is 'community'.
> After the challenges of the past year, our community has explored ways 
> to rebuild the connections we were used to having face-to-face. Many 
> Open Source communities already had their roots online, so how can this 
> be applied to other areas, and how can we keep people interested as they 
> shift to living even more of their lives online? How can we keep in 
> contact with connections in other countries in a virtual way?
> 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 Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 January, with 
> multiple streams catering for a wide range of interest areas.
> We invite you to submit a session proposal on a topic you are familiar 
> with via our proposals portal at 
> https://lca2022.linux.org.au/programme/proposals/.
> Talks are 45 minute presentations on a single topic presented in lecture 
> format. Each accepted talk will receive one ticket to attend the 
> conference.
> ## Call for Miniconfs
> We are pleased to announce we will again have four Miniconfs on the 
> first day, Friday 14 January 2022. These are:
> * GO GLAM meets Community
> * Kernel
> * Open Hardware
> * System Administration
> Based on feedback over a few years, we will be introducing two major 
> changes for Miniconfs in 2022: all presentations will be 30 minutes 
> long, and each accepted presentation will receive one ticket to the 
> conference.
> The Call for Miniconf Sessions is now open on our website, so we 
> encourage you to submit your proposal today. Check out our Miniconfs 
> page at https://lca2022.linux.org.au/programme/miniconfs/ for more 
> information.
> ## No need to book flights or hotels
> Don't forget: the conference will be an 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.
> ## Introducing LCA Local
> We know many of you have missed the experience of a face-to-face 
> conference and in 2022 we are launching LCA Local.
> While our conference will be online, we are inviting people to join 
> others in their local area and participate in the conference together. 
> More information and an expression of interest form for LCA Local will 
> be released soon.
> ## Have you got an idea?
> You can find out how to submit your session proposals at 
> https://lca2022.linux.org.au/programme/proposals/. If you have any other 
> questions, you can contact us via email at contact at lca2022.linux.org.au.
> The session selection committee is looking forward to reading your 
> submissions. We would also like to thank them for coming together and 
> volunteering their time to help put this conference together.
