Daryl Tester has organised this in previous years and I (Jonathan Oxer) would love it if he did it again, so I'm making this page as a prompt for him ;-)
 
  
The Martial Arts BoF is for any practitioner of any martial art to come together, train, share and learn.  Even if you're a beginner or just mildly curious and have never trained before, you're welcome to come along and participate. The format is a relaxed training session where you will have an opportunity to try out different styles and techniques, and also teach something from your own style if you feel so inclined.

< Main Page < Programme < BoF Sessions


Given that the Stardome Planetarium Observatory is situated handily close to the University of Auckland venue for LCA2015, I thought we'd organise an Astronomy BoF again this year to complement the Astronomy Miniconf.

Stardome has a gallery/exhibits, and runs a planetarium show on the summer night sky at 8pm. After the planetarium show, there is telescope viewing available which included amateur-grade telescopes in the courtyard, or the option of viewing through the Zeiss 0.5m telescope for a small extra fee.

Please feel free to update this page to include/suggest other options.
