Registrations open for Australian Linux conference


Registrations have opened for the forthcoming Australian national Linux conference which is scheduled to be held in Brisbane from January 24 to 29 next year.

Chief conference organiser Dr Shaun Nykvist said that one unusual feature of the event would be a mini-conference on rocketry - former Debian project leader and enthusiastic rocket builder Bdale Garbee is in charge - with a launch at the end of the conference.

Early bird registrations are being offered at a discount from the standard cost as usual. A professional delegate would pay $795 for the conference at the standard rates and $635 if he or she registers before November 8.

Hobbyist rates are $375 (standard) and $299 (early bird) while students will have to pay $125 for either. Registrations will close on December 31.

For those who wish to sponsor and also attend as a professional delegate, the organisers have created the rather appropriately named category of Fairy Penguin; this will entail a payment of $1500.

The main conference will open on the Wednesday (Jan 26) with the mini-conferences occupying the first two days.

On January 30, as has been the custom over the last three years, there will be an open day for the general public to be shown what free and open source software can offer them.
