WELLINGTON, New Zealand – Monday 29 June 2009 – linux.conf.au announced the opening of its Call for Papers for LCA2010. linux.conf.au isn't just a Linux conference. It is a technical conference about Free and Open Source Software, held annually in Australasia since 1999 - covering everything from the Linux Kernel and the BSDs to OpenOffice.org, from networking to audio-visual magic, from hardware hacks to Creative Commons.

"The presentations that make up our programme are important to linux.conf.au, they give our speakers an excellent opportunity to inform a highly technical audience about the new advances they've made," says Andrew Ruthven, LCA2010 Director. "We're proud of hosting LCA2010 in Wellington, New Zealand and look forward to seeing an exciting array of presentation and tutorial submissions, that not only educate our delegates but also challenge and motivate them."

If you would like to take this opportunity to submit a paper to LCA2010, please visit http://www.lca2010.org.nz/programme/papers_info for more information.

IT businesses, government and community groups from around the world will also have the opportunity to showcase their work through presentations, displays and demonstrations at the LCA2010 Open Day, which will be held on Saturday 23 January 2010. The conference will open its doors to the general public and highlight the best of breed Free and Open Source technology.

LCA2010 is easily affordable for professionals and hobbyists alike, thanks to generous sponsorship by leading proponents of free and open source software, and because the conference – much like the software – is largely organised by volunteers. If your business or organisation would like to take this opportunity to support LCA2010, please visit http://www.lca2010.org.nz/sponsors/why_sponsor.

Registrations to LCA2010 will open to delegates in September 2009.
