Linux.conf.au has announced the opening of the call for papers on Friday 4th

one of the world's premier technical conferences.

Hobart TAS, Australia-- (4th July 2008) ---- The call for papers will remain

Ben Powell, President of the Tasmanian Linux Users Group, says the 10th annual

"This is the first time that the conference has been held in Hobart and given
the unique location, and that it is celebrating its 10th anniversary this
year, we expect to see significant interest from local and international
speakers and delegates," said Mr Powell.

It is expected that over 100 speakers will be chosen to present at the Hobart
conference from a large pool of international and local submissions.

"The conference provides a unique opportunity for Tasmanians to discuss their
ideas on an international stage, and for business to support IT innovation,"
said Mr Powell.

“This year's Linux conference is expected to bring 700 delegates to the
Tasmania to enjoy one of Australia's premiere technical conferences, with
presentations by many of the leading experts in free and open source software.

"The conference also provides an opportunity to showcase Tasmania to the
world's technical community, with many delegates keen to take in Tasmania's
famous food, wine and beautiful scenery during their stay.

"Previous years' conferences have seen up to 100 influential international and
national speakers from major IT companies and projects, with submissions for
the opportunity to speak at Australia's internationally renowned event growing
every year," said Mr Powell.

The conference will also present the best of open source software with
presentations, displays and hands-on demonstrations at the conference free
public Open Day for the Tasmanian technical industry and general community.

"We expect to see a number of our own local speakers feature in the lineup, so
this will be a great opportunity for our own IT community to really shine on
the international stage," said Mr Powell.

Hobart at the University of Tasmania. More information about the paper
