FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Got Something to Say? There’s Still Time!

linux.conf.au showcases the best of open source and community-driven software and hardware, and it’s coming to the Australian National University from 28 January to 2 February, 2013. The conference provides a great opportunity for open source developers, users, hackers, and makers to share their ideas and further improve their projects.

The call for proposals has now been open for four weeks, and the quality of submissions so far has been outstanding. Originally scheduled to be closed this week, the papers committee has agreed to extend the deadline by two weeks, just to give everyone a chance to have their voice heard.

This year, linux.conf.au is focusing on deep technical content, and the things that you think are going to really matter in the future. Successful proposals will be announced in August, 2012.

Mary Gardiner and Michael Davies, papers committee chairs, are excited about the submissions they have seen so far, and they want to ensure that everyone has had a chance to submit a proposal about something they feel passionate about. "We are expecting a broad range of technical talks on all sorts of new and interesting technologies", Michael said.

If you have been working on something interesting, now is the time to tell the world! Visit linux.conf.au/cfp, and submit your proposal today.
