LCA 2013 attracts more than 300 talks proposals

The Australian national Linux conference has attracted a record number of proposals for talks and presentations since the event was begun in 1999.

In a media release, the organisers of the 2013 conference said they had pulled in more than 300 proposals before submissions closed on Saturday night.

The conference will be held at the Australian National University in Canberra from January 218 to February 2 next year.

LCA 2013 director Michael Still was quoted as saying: "It felt as though everyone left their submissions until the very last minute, my cardiologist thanks you".

The two members of the papers approval panel, Mary Gardiner and Michael Davies, said they were looking forward to picking the best proposals.

While the work would be challenging, it was also "deeply interesting to see what's currently on the minds of the open source community," commented Ms Gardiner.

The line-up for the conference will be made public in September, 2012.
