I'm pretty sure the plan is for Melbourne for the next two years. It
rotates between bidding cities on a two-year timeframe. I'm not sure if
it's definite but I understand Melbourne does have a bid in for 2016.
Which, if it comes together, will be awesome.

>> The *Python in Education Miniconf* aims to bring together community

>> educators across primary, secondary and tertiary levels to share their

>> with each other and also with the broader Python community.
>>
>> The *Science and Data Miniconf* is a forum for people using Python to
>> tackle problems in science and data analysis. It aims to cover commercial
>> and research interests in applications of science, engineering,
>> mathematics, finance, and data analysis using Python, including AI and 'big
>> data' topics.
>>
>> The *OpenStack Miniconf* is dedicated to talks related to the OpenStack
