Continuing the tradition from past conferences, the LCA Multimedia
Miniconf is back at Linux.conf.au 2011 (LCA2011).  Linux.conf.au 2011 will
be hosted in Brisbane, Australia from 24-29 January 2011 with the
miniconfs being held over the first two days.  For more information about
the conference check out http://lca2011.linux.org.au/.

Multimedia encapsulates a wide variety of topics: composition and playpack
of video, audio and music.  Submissions are now invited from those
interested in giving presentations or short tutorials at the Multimedia
miniconf on any topic related to opensource multimedia software, such as
the following:

 * exciting new additions to existing software
 * development of new multimedia programs
 * how to set Linux up for multimedia composition, authoring and/or
 * great user experiences with open source multimedia software
 * legal issues surrounding multimedia content and its use with open
   source software
 * descriptions of multimedia workflows: tools used, process followed,
   and so forth
 * upcoming features in low-level infrastructure (JACK, ALSA,
   PulseAudio, etc)
 * any other open source multimedia topic we haven't thought of 

It is expected that most of the miniconf presentation slots will be around
20 minutes with question time to follow.  We may be able to accommodate
longer 50 minute presentations depending on the number of proposals
offered.  In addition, time will be allocated for 5 minute "lightning
talks".  Projection facilities will be available.  Please note that in
line with linux.conf.au guidelines miniconfs cannot receive funding, nor
can they provide travel or accommodation assistance.  In general
presenters and attendees at miniconfs must be registered for LCA2011
although miniconf-only registration can be arranged - contact the
multimedia minconf organisers for more information.

To submit a proposal please send the following to lca-mm at lists.annodex.net
or one of the organisers by Thursday 6 October 2010 00:00 UT:

 * your name and preferred email address
 * the title of your talk
 * a brief abstract describing what you want to talk about (up to about
   500 words)
