The annual (LCA) is one of the major open source events world-wide. The community participated in the Miniconf program in Canberra 2005, in Dunedin NZ in 2006, and in Sydney 2007. The 2008 LCA will be held in Melbourne, Australia from 28 January to 2 February 2008, including Miniconf sessions during the first two days (28-29 January). If you would like to participate in the OOo Miniconf in 2008, please update this article or email (subscribe)


LCA is about Linux, but OOo is for all platforms. There is strong interest and support for OOo among the Linux community, and there is much overlap between the two communities, having a shared interest in free software and open source. The LCA Miniconf is currently the only formal OOo event in our region (Australia/NZ).

The OOo Miniconf includes formal presentations, workshops, Q&A and problem solving.
