Home Business IT Open Source LCA 2013 extends date for talks submission

The date for submission of proposals for talks at the 13th Australian national Linux conference, known as LCA, has been extended by two weeks.

A media release from the organisers said the date had been extended to give more people a chance to make a submission. A large number of high-quality proposals had already been received.

The conference is scheduled to be held at the Australian National University in Canberra from January 28 to February 2 next year.

The two members of the talks committee, Mary Gardiner and Michael Davies, endorsed the provision of an extra fortnight, saying they wanted anyone with an idea they were enthusiastic about to have a chance to make a submission.

"We are expecting a broad range of technical talks on all sorts of new and interesting technologies", Davies said.

The LCA, which has been predominantly known for its technical content, broadened its horizons a few years ago to include a broader range of talks.
