BALLARAT, 2 September 2011
Building on several years of success, it comes as no surprise to Linux Conference Australia (LCA) regulars that the Haecksen / LinuxChix Miniconf has been accepted - for the sixth year in a row! Organised by community luminary Lana Brindley with strong support from The Ada Initiative and LinuxChix, the Miniconf promises an engaging lineup of female speakers.
Lana Brindley was incredibly pleased at the news; "The Haecksen Miniconf has been continually growing in size, content and popularity - and we're looking forward to making the 2012 Miniconf the best yet!"
The Call for Papers (CfP) will open soon, and will seek proposals on a wide variety of topics. If you're a woman, and working on something awesome, then Lana and the team want to hear about it! Further information can be found on the Haecksen website. Enquiries about the Miniconf should be directed to email@example.com.
LinuxChix is a global community of women users and developers of Linux and open source software. AussieChix, the Australian chapter of LinuxChix, has organised the Haecksen miniconf at linux.conf.au since 2007.
The Ada Initiative is a non-profit dedicated to supporting women in open technology and culture. The Ada Initiative was founded by Valerie Aurora and Mary Gardiner in January 2011.
Miniconfs - miniature conferences - are community-organised sessions designed to bring together like-minded delegates with interests in a specific field. They are run within the framework of the broader event, and provide excellent opportunities for professional networking and developing presentation experience.LCA will be held 16th-20th January 2012 in Ballarat, Victoria, Australia. Registrations will open mid-September.
