The Linux Audio Mini-Conf @ LCA2004 was held on the Monday before, Australia's national Linux conference. In January 2004 this was at the University of Adelaide in Adelaide, South Australia.

In keeping with the developer focus of, the aim of this mini-conf was to allow Linux audio developers to meet and share ideas, and also to discuss audio-related issues with the developers of the kernel, networking and desktop systems. For all users, it was a great way to see and hear the variety of tools available.
