Registration Information

The Linux Plumbers Conference for 2020 has been set for August 25-27 at the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel. It is important to note that registration might close earlier than the dates indicated if the maximum capacity is reached. In the past few years, this has happened a few weeks before the start of the conference. Early registration is therefore recommended. Registration will not be available onsite on the days of the conference, hence the last day to register, unless registration is closed earlier, will be August 24 2020, the day prior to the conference.
