  • LCA2010 program schedule now available!

    LCA2010 Organisers announce schedule of talks for 2010!

    WELLINGTON, New Zealand – Monday 14 September 2009.

    A full schedule of talks is now available for LCA2010. The conference brings together speakers from around the world presenting a variety of topics; from the strongly technical such as Linux kernel development, to social interaction within communities and issues relating to diverse and minority groups. 2010 runs for a full week starting Monday 18th January, with more than 65 talk sessions, together with a number of Keynote presentations and 14 Miniconfs.

    "We hope that everyone will enjoy the line-up of talks for 2010" says Susanne Ruthven, Co-Director of LCA2010. "We had an exceptionally difficult task of choosing such a small number of papers from a list of well over 300 submissions! We believe our selection represents the wide range of speakers and topics from a diverse set of backgrounds who submitted papers - those from education and government, participating in free and open source software in their spare time or as part of their daily jobs. LCA2010 will be an event you cannot afford to miss!"
