> 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

> 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

> 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,
