CONFERENCE: Second Call For Talks, Papers and Tutorials: CALU 1999

As posted to C.O.L.A.

This is the second call for submissions for the inaugural Conference

[ Paging Jon `maddog' Hall: please contact me re: securing your
  services as keynote speaker.  Thanks. ]


We want submissions from people who have something interesting to say
on a Linux-related topic.  Maybe you've had experiences with Linux in
an unusual environment, maybe you've developed something for Linux,
maybe you're a guru in some Linux-related area.  Maybe you have an
angle we haven't thought of yet...

The standard has been set by the speakers already confirmed, such as
David S. Miller (Cobalt, Linux hacker), Miguel de Icaza (GNOME project
lead and Linux hacker), and Andrew Tridgell (SAMBA project).  If
you're interested in rubbing shoulders with some of the movers and
shakers of the Linux world, at THE Australian Linux Event of 1999,
this is the place to be.

We have half-day (3.5 hour) tutorial slots, and 50-minute paper/talk
slots.  We'll be providing return airfare and accomodation for

1999.  Of course, better late than never.
