I've posted some more detailed thoughts to the list on this topic:

Please come! The OpenBMC kernel team will be there, along with other
contributors: both the ones you know, and future potential
contributors.  22-26 January 2018, Sydney, Australia

I will organise a BoF session during the week to chat about OpenBMC.
If there's enough interest we can look at spending a day before, after
(or during?) the conference to talk shop.
