Australian Linux conference issues call for papers


Organisers of the 11th Australian national Linux conference have invited those who wish to present papers at the January 2011 event to submit their proposals by August 7.

This year, apart from the presentations (45 minutes) and tutorials (either an hour and 45 minutes or three hours and 30 minutes), the conference organisers are also calling for people to submit posters.

According to the conference website, "technical posters that explain a new and innovative project or technology, as well as creative posters that highlight the capabilities of a particular program or language" will be accepted.

As the conference, one of three major Linux conferences around the world - the other two being in the US and Canada - normally receives a glut of submissions, a weeding out process will be carried out and those who are successful will be notified by early September.

Individuals who want to propose topics for mini-conferences - normally held on the first two days of conference week - have also been asked to submit their proposals.

The conference will be held in Brisbane from January 24 to 28 at the Queensland University of Technology, with the main conference being from January 26 to 28.

As has been the custom for the last three years, an open day, to showcase free and open source software to the public, will be held on January 29.

This is the second time that Brisbane is hosting the conference, the first time being in 2002.
