The LCA2010 audience consists of technically skilled people, who attend LCA2010 because the content of the talks are pitched at their level of expertise and are generally based on free and open source software. Promotional talks, such as commercial advertisements and sales pitches are not appropriate at LCA2010 miniconfs.
If you would like to provide delegates with handouts or notes during their presentation, it is your responsibility to arrange for and distribute these directly to delegates at your talk. LCA2010 organisers and the miniconf organisers cannot provide miniconf presenters with photocopying facilities in the lead up to or during LCA2010.
Please be aware of the Terms and Conditions to ensure that your material and behaviour are appropriate for the LCA2010 audience.
Attendance and Registration
Miniconf presenters are people who present talks at a miniconf. Miniconf presenters are not conference speakers and will not receive conference speaker benefits unless they are also speaking at the main conference. Miniconf presenters must register online and pay their registration fee. Generally miniconf presenters register as a delegate. The level of registration determines the benefits you receive.
Registration for the conference does not include accomodation. You must book accomodation yourself. A list of options is avaiable at http://conf.linux.org.au/register/accommodation
Network and A/V
There is no guarantee that the network will be operating or that presentations will be recorded during the miniconf days. These services are provided on a best effort basis. If AV is provided, miniconfpresenters will be asked, before they give their miniconf talk, if they agree to their talk being recorded and to their talk materials being released under a creative commons licence. If these are agreed to, the A/V technician will ask to download their talk slides and/or handouts for public release.
Please note, New Zealand is a country in its own right. Anyone who lives outside New Zealand (including Australia) will need a passport, and may require a visa, to gain entry into New Zealand. Please contact your local New Zealand Embassy department, well in advance of LCA2010, to determine your travel needs.
