linux.conf.au - Ballarat 16-20 Jan 2012
Introduction

Tired of the big smoke?

Come out from the buildings, away from the lights and noise, to a different Australia. Come where the bush meets the city and history runs hand in hand with high technology. Come with us, Under the Stars. Come to Ballarat 2012. We are proud to announce that LCA will be hosted by Ballarat in 2012!

16 - 20 January 2012 will see linux.conf.au leave the capital cities of Australia and spread its wings into regional Victoria where we hope to show another side of this amazing country, both to those from here and abroad. Ballarat, located about an hour from Melbourne, is a perfect example of the contrasting nature of Australian lifestyles. Once founded on the gold mines of the diggings, Ballarat has now matured into a thriving town that has embraced 21st century innovation without forgetting its historical past. Nestled into the surrounding bushland, the University of Ballarat, as host venue for LCA2012, offers a vastly different experience to traditional universities, being large enough to host events such as LCA whilst remaining small enough to retain the 'laid back' feel of a regional facility.

We hope you're all able to join us in 2012 and encourage everyone to stay tuned for further announcements throughout 2011.
