University of Auckland

The conference this year is being held at the City campus of the University of Auckland (Te Whare Wānanga o Tāmaki Makaurau), which is "the largest and leading university in the country".[1]

Owen G Glenn Building (OGGB)

Main article: OGGB

Most activity at the conference will happen within this building, which is currently "the largest teaching space in New Zealand"[2], and is named for ex-pat kiwi businessman Owen Glenn. We will mainly be using Level 0 and Level 1 of the OGGB for LCA2015. There is an internal connection between the OGGB and the Fisher & Paykel Appliances Auditorium.

Fisher & Paykel Appliances Auditorium (FPAA)

Main article: FPAA

FPAA

National Institute of Creative Arts and Industries (NICAI)

The Open Radio Miniconf and Open Hardware Miniconf will be held in this building, which is better equipped for soldering irons and the like.

The workshop and presentation room are both in building 421. The easiest access to this from OGGB is to cross Grafton Road (leaving the main entrance of OGGB) and walk along the driveway behind the Engineering campus of UoA. The building that will eventually be directly in front of you, is building 421.

The Workshop is room 129 on Level 1. The presentation room is room 311 and is on level 3 almost directly above the workshop straight up the stairs.
