For those of you who have not been following the lca2011 news, the results for the lca2011 miniconfs have now been publicly released – please see the lca2011 latest news. Sarah has been continuously working to get this out so quickly after the recent decisions by the lca2011 papers team and should be commended on all this hard work. There are a few new miniconfs this year as well as the good old favourites and this is really is going to make it hard for some attendees to make a decision. The miniconfs will individually be calling for their papers over the next little while so please watch for these announcements.
After a long couple of nights reviewing miniconfs for lca2011, it looks like we will be making some really awesome announcements very soon. I think we have chosen a large selection of miniconfs that will really capture the interests of everyone in the community – though we have some logistics to still discuss. The papers team will also meet this Saturday to focus on the papers proposals, which means we will soon be able to start confirming other speakers (and ensuring that the idea of sleep is really just a dream).
Now to answer one of the questions that I have been receiving over the last couple of days/weeks – who are our keynotes for lca2011? At this stage all I can say is that we will have some really interesting announcements as registrations draw a little closer.
