**apologies for cross-posting** TL;DR: Submit your talks for LCA2022 -
It’s been a very long time between emails. You may or may not have seen
emails and alerts on social media going around about our wonderful
conference linux.conf.au 2022. Following the success that we had in
January with LCA2021, we thought we would try it again.
But…. sadly the call for sessions has now been open for 2 weeks and we
unfortunately don’t have enough sessions to fill the entire 3 days.
Excitedly though, we have plenty of keynotes (more info on that to come
soon once we have firmly locked them in place 😁). Thank you to those
who have already submitted, they are looking fantastic and as it is I
would struggle to work out which one I would want to see live the most!
I would really love for this conference to go ahead, LCA is what brought
me into this community and it is what has convinced me to hang around
and contribute back. I know most of us are fatigued by the pandemic and
online events, but regardless of Online vs Face-to-face, it was amazing
to see everyone and all your wonderful faces and I’d love to do it
again. While online isn’t ideal, it’s the best option we've got and we
want to make the best of a bad scenario (and not cancel it entirely).
So this is a bit of a plea from me. Please submit a talk, join us in
January. We have the "venue" sorted, sponsors organised, miniconfs
chosen, keynotes ready, now all we need is a wonderful program of
sessions for our community to listen and watch. We also have MiniConf
specialist tracks focussing on System Administration, Kernel, Open
Hardware and GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives & Museums) so submit
there as well!
Some ideas for session submissions are:
Are you working on a new ground breaking project and want to share
the details or launch the code?
Did you give a talk at LCA 10 years ago? How about using the same
slides and giving the talk again but this time updating us as to
where things got to: did you ditch the project, or did it thrive and
become bigger than you expected?
Are you contributing to an Open Source community and you want to
share your wisdom with us?
Now because I’m sending this out and the call for sessions was due to
close this weekend we’ve organised to extend the deadline by an extra
week. Our wonderful Session Selection Committee is ready to review
submissions from the new deadline of 11:59pm Sunday 12th September
(Anywhere on Earth). Submissions can be made from:
Also spread the word! If you know someone who is working on or has
something interesting to say then recommend that they submit.
Looking forward to seeing you all in January,
