The conference, better known as LCA, is scheduled to be held at the Australian National University from January 28 to February 2.
Of the three mini-confs, two will be devoted to topics around systems administration and the third will cover open hardware, in this case the Arduino.
One of the sysadmin mini-confs is titled systems administration and the other will cover advances in Linux security. The former will be of interest to professionals who look after Linux systems; the latter will deal with advances in embedded and mobile markets, covering Android, Chromium and Tizen.
The mini-conferences will be held on the first two days of conference week, with the main event taking up the remaining three days.
