Subject: Open Source in Government Conference - Con Zymaris
Con Zymaris supplied your contact details to me on
the Program Committee list, regards this conference.
I have only recently joined the org team, so my
request comes a little late.. my apologies..
The first annual Australian conference on Linux and Open Source in Government.
Sponsored by Oracle and organised as a miniconference of the Linux.conf.au
in cooperation with Linux Australia and AUUG, the conference will be held in
Adelaide, South Australia, on 12 and 13 January 2004.
Titled The Challenges, this conference will focus on best practices,
raise awareness and share experiences amongst Policy Makers and IT officials.
Participants will come from Government and public departments, the academic sectors,
and local, national and international organizations.
As this is the First conference of it's kind, (focussed on Govt, Linux and FOSS)
We are striving to ensure we have as many knowledgeable speakers as possible
in attendance, and cover as many Gov related areas, in the time frame (2 days)
We have already received many abstracts from prospective speakers, however
as I understand it, CLUG hasn't been contact as yet :(
It would seem obvious to me that many Linux/OSS supporters, within the CLUG
group would also be involved in various facets of Govt.
We would welcome a submission by you, or suggestions on who you feel might be
well suited to speaking.
Whilst the "official" closing date for abstracts is today, due to the late
contact, we will be accepting proposals for a fdew more days.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
Thankyou for your time.
