I'm in New Zealand, and keen to take this on :) Thanks for the prompt!

I wasn't planning to attend LCA due to this year's focus on Internet of Things, which has no crossover with my interests, but I didn't even consider the idea of an LGM miniconf...

I will submit a proposal in the next day or two. If anybody else is keen to be involved, please get in touch!

> I realize this is short notice, but what can you do.  > Linux.conf.au <http://Linux.conf.au>>  (LCA) has its call for papers open for just a couple more days: > https://linux.conf.au/call-for-papers/ <https://linux.conf.au/call-for-papers/>
> The event itself is January 21 to 25, 2019.
> In addition to the regular session submissions, though, people can propose one-day 'miniconfs' for addition to the schedule. Approved miniconf organizers are then responsible for putting together their own program. They are typically single-topic-focused events, and holding one on libre graphics would certainly be a great opportunity for the LG community to engage with a totally different audience than the one that habitually frequents LGM itself.
> Several folks on this list have put together similar libre-graphics-day tracks at other local, community events in the past, most recently at SCALE in Los Angeles, and they're always enthusiastic and interesting. So if anybody is in the Australia / New Zaeland region (or likes going there), and feels like giving it a shot, this is the chance.
> Please note that I'm not volunteering to do that: it really would need somebody who's either in the area or is already 100% sure that they'll be at LCA. I've been a couple of times in years past and it's a great community, but it's quite a trip for a lot of us on certain other continents....
> Anyway, just tossing that out there. I don't think you'd have to have anything close to a complete plan in place (like what speakers/sessions you'd have); this is just the deadline for proposing a miniconf in general.
