Its been a while coming – but finally the lca2011 call for papers has been announced – please go to http://lca2011.linux.org.au/ for more information on this. This year the lca2011 team has also made a call for Posters in addition for the common call for Presentations, Miniconfs and Tutorials. If you know of people that you would like to see present at this conference, then please give them a little nudge to make a submission. The site will continue to evolve over the next few months until the conference, so please make sure you check back regularly or subscribe to one of the many feeds that exist e.g. twitter, facebook. It has been another late night for me so I am hopefully going to go and steal a couple of hours sleep before the morning hits me with the normal school drop offs and work duties. Thanx to everyone for their patience while we have got this out – there have been a plethora of issues we have had to work through since Christmas last year, but it will be another linux.conf.au to remember. We have lots of exciting things planned and will do our best to accommodate the many suggestions we have received since the brilliant Wellington conference in January.
