Australian Linux Conference may be cancelled due to Brisbane flood

Venue for conference later this month is currently closed

A decision is still to be made as to whether the 12th Australian national Linux conference will go ahead in flood-stricken Brisbane. The conference is scheduled to run from January 24 to 29.

A notice on the Linux Australia website notes: “The current venue for linux.conf.au is located on the Brisbane River at QUT (Gardens Point Campus).

“ ... The conference has not been cancelled even though the venue remains closed.”

The Brisbane river was expected to peak today, and the post notes: “We should know the full extent of the floods around this time and will continually keep people updated via the web and social networking sites.”

According to the ITnews website, a final decision on whether the conference will go ahead will be made on Monday.

The floods have caused Australian telecomms carrier AAPT to shut down a datacentre in the Brisbane CBD.
