The LCA 2015 Organisers are proud to announce our funding programme!

LCA 2015 and InternetNZ are proud to support diversity. The InternetNZ
Diversity Programme is one way we ensure that LCA 2015 continues to be an
open and welcoming conference for everyone. Together with InternetNZ this
program has been created to assist under-represented delegates who
contribute to the Open Source community but, without financial assistance,
would not be able to attend LCA 2015.

LCA 2015 is proud to acknowledge the support of our Emperor Penguin
