Entirely with precedent: It's happening again!

July 9, 2021

Australasia's grassroots Free and Open Source technologies conference, linux.conf.au, will be held online, worldwide, from Friday 14 to Sunday 16 January 2022.

Put it in your calendar

Based on feedback from the last conference, we will be running the conference across the weekend again, but starting on Friday instead. Friday 14 January will be a day of Miniconfs, followed by two days of main conference on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 January.

Theme: ‘Community’

The world is beginning to see the first rays of sunlight after the gloom of the past two years of pandemic. While we’re not quite “there yet”, things are looking up for the future. After so long a period of on-again off-again separation from friends, peers and community, let’s come together online and say “Hi! - What’s new with you?”

Call for Miniconfs

Miniconfs are dedicated day-long streams focusing on single topics, creating a more immersive experience for delegates than a session. They’re a crowd favourite and an awesome way to kick off the conference on Friday 14 January, before the main conference commences on Saturday.

Our Call for Miniconfs is now open. You can find out how to submit your miniconf proposals here. The Call for Miniconfs will close at 11:59pm 31 July 2021 Anywhere on Earth (AoE)

Call for Sessions

Our Call for Sessions will open in a few weeks, after the Call for Miniconfs is complete. We encourage you to start thinking about talks to present at the conference, ready to submit a proposal once the dashboard opens.

Sponsorship opportunities

We have a wide range of sponsorship opportunities available. In addition to sponsoring the conference, you can sponsor Miniconfs or contribute towards specific programs.

If you or your organisation is interested in sponsoring linux.conf.au, please get in touch.
