Linux.conf.au is pleased to announce an encore to its Call for Papers for Linux.conf.au 2003, to be held in Perth, Western Australia in January 2003.
This "Second Call For Papers" is to permit further contributions to be put forward for review. LCA has recieved many submissions in the last few weeks, however formal reviews will not begin until August 1st, and thus we are allowing further submissions until this point in time.
Our range of submissions recieved thus far have been broad; from Kernel-hacking to usability.
Please see http://www.linux.conf.au/cfp.html for the requirements for the Call For Papers.
