Miniconfs are miniature conferences, held prior to the formal opening of LCA2012, which are targeted towards specific communities and areas of interest. They provide delegates an opportunity to network with other enthusiasts while immersing themselves in a specific topic or project.
Whilst not a formal part of linux.conf.au 2012, the miniconfs are free for anyone who has registered for the main conference. Those speaking at the miniconfs will need to register for linux.conf.au 2012 in order to attend on the Monday.
For LCA2012, we will be holding mini-confs on Monday the 16th of January prior to the formal conference start on Tuesday the 17th of January. This allows us to pack in another amazing day of talks as part of the main conference, however the trade-off is that it does limit the number of mini-confs that we will be able to host.
