Tonight has been another very long, yet productive night for the LCA2011 team. The whole team has been working extremely hard over the last few weeks to ensure that the call for papers, miniconfs and posters will happen in the next few days. The team has faced many challenges over the last few months on a number of different levels, but has been gradually working through these to ensure that linux.conf.au 2011 is yet another great conference that everyone in the open source community has come to expect. If you are planning to be a presenter, run a miniconf, or even submit a poster then now is the time to get your ideas together ready for the official call for papers (official announcement very soon). Alternatively, if you know of someone who would be a great speaker then give them a little prod about the conference and ask them about presenting. Only 206 more days and LCA2011 will be upon us and while I had planned to be asleep at this time of the morning, I think I will go and look for bugs – probably the sort of thing you need to do in the dark of the night.
