LCA 2013 to hold four community-oriented mini-confs

The organisers of the 2013 Australian national Linux conference have announced that there will be four mini-conferences focusing on the open source community held as part of the event.

LCA 2013 is scheduled to be held at the Australian National University in Canberra from January 28 to February 2.

The topics for the mini-conferences will be open government; multimedia and music; haecksen; and Linux distributions.

While open government and multimedia and music are self-evident, haecksen refers to women's activities in open source.

LCA 2013 is being held in the national capital even as the 100th anniversary of Canberra is marked.
