Information on Proposals
The linux.conf.au 2013 papers committee is looking for a broad range of proposals, and will consider submissions on anything from programming and software, to desktop, userspace, community, government, and education. There is only one rule:
Your proposal must be related to open source.
This year, the papers committee is going to be focused on deep technical content, and things we think are going to really matter in the future -- that might range from freedom and privacy to open source cloud systems or to energy efficient server farms of the future.
However, the conference is to a large extent what the speakers make it -- if we receive many excellent submissions on a topic, then it’s sure to be represented at the conference.
