First miniconf calls go out: Miniconfs call for papers!

This week, first calls have come from the successful miniconfs to submit papers for their programs. These specialist conferences run in the days before and bring in high quality speakers to cover topics in their field of endeavor.

"Miniconfs are always a hit with conference goers, and many delegates who just come to the main conference lament missing the minconf program" said Ben Powell, organiser for LCA09. "These miniconfs cover specialist topics that are of interest to the FOSS community - there's really something for everyone and although some of the traditional miniconfs missed out this year, the inclusion of new topics give conference goers the opportunity to see a wide range of exciting topics" said Mr. Powell.

To fill their programmes the miniconf organisers have started to announce a call for participation. Each miniconf is looking for a select range of talks from industry leaders and professionals alike. To read each particular call for participation, please read on below:

With more miniconfs announcing their call for participation soon, can expect a great line up of talks covering a vast amount of topics.
