I just noticed that the Call for Participation for FOSS.my 2009 is now open, until August 15th. I spoke at the inaugural event last year, and had a great time. Held in Malaysia, this is a true grass-roots conference. It’s modelled somewhat on other community events such as LCA and FOSS.IN, and probably the leading such event for Southeast Asia.
The conference will be held on the weekend of the 24th and 25th of October, immediately following the Japan Linux Symposium and the Kernel Summit. If you’re visiting the region for either of the Tokyo events, Malaysia is relatively close-by, and there are several good budget airlines in the region. I’d highly recommend submitting a proposal or simply attending.
Kuala Lumpur is certainly a great city to visit, too.
