Returns to Canberra in 2013

I am incredibly pleased to announce that 2013 will be hosted by Canberra, Australia between 28 January 2013 to 2 February 2013. As the director for 2013 I have been blessed with a simply incredible team who has done fantastic work during the bid process, and I am confident that we will pull off a fantastic event. 2013 is Canberra’s centenary year, so I think its appropriate to have a conference with a bit of a party atmosphere. We’re working hard already on making 2013 a conference to remember.

For those who were unable to see the announcement at the conference, you might find the following interesting:

  • Call for papers: June 2012
  • Early bird registrations open: October 2012
  • Conference: 28 January 2013 to 2 February 2013 is one of the foremost open source conferences in the world, and is considered the most prestigious in the southern hemisphere. Many of the team that brought you 2005 are coming back to help with the 2013 effort, and we’re cognizant of the extremely high standard left by previous conferences, especially the astounding job that Josh’s 2012 team did.

The web site for the conference is already live, and we’ll be keeping it up to date as details are locked in.
