Being held at the University of Technology, Sydney, linux.conf.au is the largest linux and open source conference in the Asia-Pacific region. Run annually since 1999, it brings together the Australian, New Zealand and international community for standout presentations, demonstrations and relationship building.

It is a deeply technical conference and pre-emininent practitioners in the field, both professionals and hobbyists, are expected to attend. linux.conf.au attracts between 500 to 800 delegates annually.
