The last such camp to be held in Melbourne was in 2011. Given the popularity of the software, which is open source, there are conferences held around the world under the same name.
Wordcamp Melbourne 2013 will see a broad range of topics covered by a number of speakers.
The programme is being devised to show the way in which many different uses - content management, blogging, e-commerce, community building,and beyond - can all be achieved using WordPress.
Proposals for talks can submitted here and sponsors can indicate their interest here. Ticket sales will be announced in coming weeks.
