The Linux Foundation is out with its schedule of events for this year's LinuxCon North America conference. It's slated for August 17th to 19th in Vancouver, Canada. It will take place at the Hyatt Regency hotel in Vancouver, and you can register now. The lineup of speakers looks to be outstanding. Linus Torvalds is speaking, as are Eben Moglen, Red Hat CEO Jim Whitehurst, Eucalyptus Systems' CEO and MySQL pundit Marten Mickos, and many others.

In addition to keynotes, roundtable panels and 75 conference sessions, LinuxCon will feature a range of tutorials, lightning talks, and other events. There will be a number of developer lounges available.

The Linux Foundation will be celebrating 20 years of Linux in conjunction with the conference, and Red Hat CEO Jim Whitehurst's address there will focus on where Linux has come in 20 years, and where it is headed. Ubuntu's Technical Architect Allison Randal will also discuss Ubuntu's direction, and what the Ubuntu development team is working on.

Basic registration for the conference costs $500 until the 8th of July. After that date, registration is $600 and student registration is $100. This sounds like one of the best Linux and open source-focused events of this year.
