= Got Something to Say About Open Source? =

linux.conf.au is shaping up to be a huge event, and they want your input!
Scheduled to be held at the Australian National University from 28 January to
2 February, 2013, the conference is designed to showcase the best of open
source and community-driven software and hardware. It provides a great
opportunity for open source developers, users, hackers, and makers to share
their ideas and further improve their projects.

The conference is now asking interested people and groups to submit proposals
for talks. This year, they are focusing on deep technical content, and the
things that you think are going to really matter in the future. Do you have
something to say about freedom and privacy, open source cloud systems, or
energy efficient server farms of the future? Or something else that you are
passionate about?

Michael Still, conference director, is excited about the potential for some
truly fascinating talks from a wide range of speakers, saying "to a large
extent, the conference is what the speakers make it".

All proposals will be submitted to the papers committee, this year headed by
Michael Davies, past conference director, and Mary Gardiner, co-founder of the
Ada Initiative. Successful proposals will be announced in August, 2012. 

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