Call for submissions — 2020

The 2020 organising team has issued an invitation to IT professionals for proposals for talks and miniconfs at the next conference, which will take place on the Gold Coast, 13–17 January 2020.

Held regularly since 1999, is the largest Linux and open source conference in the Asia–Pacific region. The conference provides deeply technical presentations from industry leaders and experts on a wide array of subjects relating to open source projects, data and open government and community engagement.

The theme for the 2020 conference is ‘Who’s Watching’, focusing on security, privacy and ethics. Privacy and security matter more than ever before, so the conference organisers have set their sights on how open source could play a role in maximising security and protecting privacy in times of uncertainty.

Submissions for talks and miniconfs close Sunday, 28 July. Information on how to submit proposals can be found here, or you can email the LCA2020 conference team at
