Hello all,

Firstly sorry if this isn't the right list for this sort of content. While
I've continued to lurk in the OpenStack community I haven't been engaged in
a number of years sadly (and missing ya'll!).

Nonetheless, linux.conf.au 2022 is coming soon as an online event. This is
your unique opportunity to speak at a conference that would otherwise
require some 24+ hours of travel for a lot of folk.

The Call For Proposals is currently open until Sunday the 12th (it was
extended) and it would be great to see some open infrastructure talks
(Ansible, OpenStack, Kubernetes, zuul, Airship, etc etc). Read on for more
information or let me know if you have any questions.

Regardless if you submit a session it is also a great opportunity to attend
a world class open source conference remotely!

The linux.conf.au 2022 Call for Sessions is now open. It will stay open
until 11:59pm 5 September 2021 Anywhere on Earth (AoE).

The theme for 2022 is 'community'.

After the challenges of the past year, our community has explored ways to
rebuild the connections we were used to having face-to-face. Many Open
Source communities already had their roots online, so how can this be
applied to other areas, and how can we keep people interested as they shift
to living even more of their lives online? How can we keep in contact with
connections in other countries in a virtual way?

If you have ideas or developments you'd like to share with the open source
community at linux.conf.au, we'd love to hear from you.

## Call for Sessions

The main conference runs on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 January, with
multiple streams catering for a wide range of interest areas.
We invite you to submit a session proposal on a topic you are familiar with
via our proposals portal at
Talks are 45 minute presentations on a single topic presented in lecture
format. Each accepted talk will receive one ticket to attend the conference.

## Call for Miniconfs

We are pleased to announce we will again have four Miniconfs on the first
day, Friday 14 January 2022. These are:

* GO GLAM meets Community
* Kernel
* Open Hardware
* System Administration

Based on feedback over a few years, we will be introducing two major
changes for Miniconfs in 2022: all presentations will be 30 minutes long,
and each accepted presentation will receive one ticket to the conference.

The Call for Miniconf Sessions is now open on our website, so we encourage
you to submit your proposal today. Check out our Miniconfs page at
https://lca2022.linux.org.au/programme/miniconfs/ for more information.

## No need to book flights or hotels

Don't forget: the conference will be an online, virtual experience. This
means our speakers will be beaming in from their own homes or workplaces.
The organising team will be able to help speakers with their tech set-up.
Each accepted presenter will have a tech check prior to the event to smooth
out any difficulties and there will be an option to pre-record

## Introducing LCA Local

We know many of you have missed the experience of a face-to-face conference
and in 2022 we are launching LCA Local.
While our conference will be online, we are inviting people to join others
in their local area and participate in the conference together. More
information and an expression of interest form for LCA Local will be
released soon.

## Have you got an idea?

You can find out how to submit your session proposals at
https://lca2022.linux.org.au/programme/proposals/. If you have any other
questions, you can contact us via email at contact at lca2022.linux.org.au.

The session selection committee is looking forward to reading your
submissions. We would also like to thank them for coming together and
volunteering their time to help put this conference together.
