 +
* [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auckland_Airport Auckland] is New Zealand's biggest airport, and the fourth biggest in Australasia, meaning you can fly directly from any airport in the Pacific.
 +
* The conference is taking place near the summer holiday peak so you will need to book your flights and accommodation as early as possible to get the cheapest rates.
 +
* Flying from the US? Remember that you're flying into the future! Don't forget to take this into account and check what day and local time you arrive.
 +
=== Immigration requirements ===
 +
* [http://glossary.immigration.govt.nz/australiancitizensandresidents.htm Australian] citizens and permanent residents do not usually need a visa to travel to New Zealand.
 +
* If you are from a visa-waiver country (including USA, most of the EU, Japan) and intending to visit for no more three months, then you do not need a visa.
 +
* Check the [http://www.immigration.govt.nz/migrant/stream/visit/ Immigration New Zealand website] for details
 +
* [http://www.customs.govt.nz/inprivate/Pages/default.aspx Customs] advice for visiting New Zealand. Note that New Zealand has stronger restrictions on bringing in food and other products that may host agricultural pests than most countries.
 +
=== Airport to venue transfers ===
 +
Auckland airport has buses, shuttles and taxis available.  Note that the Auckland domestic and international airports are about 1 km apart, so ensure you order a taxi to the correct location.

* Route #1 ("E") ''from'' the Airport via Mt Eden Road runs down Symonds St; stop #7147 (25 Symonds St, near Wellesly St East corner) is within walking distance of both Uni Hall and Carlaw Park (about 1km), and mostly downhill.
 +
* Route #1 appears to [http://www.airbus.co.nz/timetable run every 30 minutes during weekend daytime] (alternating with Route #5 via Dominion Road, which runs down Queen St)
 +
* Note that Symonds St runs along the ridgeline, so almost everything is downhill from Symonds St.  Queen Street runs down the valley, so many things are uphill from Queen St (including Queen St itself as you go away from the water!)
 +
* There does not seem to be a AirBus route ''to'' the airport that runs along Symonds St, only along Queen St (see [http://www.airbus.co.nz/find-a-stop AirBus Stop Map]), so at least from Carlaw Park getting a Shuttle ''to'' the airport may be much less effort.
  
* Ad-hoc, print out your key on a piece of paper / business card and hand it out to everyone
+
==== Shuttles ====
* [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zimmermann%E2%80%93Sassaman_key-signing_protocol Zimmermann–Sassaman key-signing protocol]
+
* Cost $33 per person, one way.
** Ideally Sassaman-projected, if there is a document projector available.
+
* Shuttles are door to door.
* We will have access to printing facilities, however:
+
* You must book the shuttle from Auckland to Airport. Please do this at least a day in advance.
** Supplying printed keylists to participants will require all participants to recite fingerprint in full or provide physical copies of fingerprint. If level of participation is high this could take a long time!
+
* Some other shuttle services may not be at the airport and you may need to book them for pickup.
** Participants could verify and print keylist themselves prior to event, but requring such preparation could exclude some participants.
+
* Not all shuttle services have the same fee. So ask before you hop on.
 +
* Group fee is usually based on pick up from same_address1 and drop off at the same_address2.
 +
* Some don't like shuttles because you may have other passengers in the shuttle to drop off along the way. Most cases they try to group all to the CBD. Obviously problem is not there if there's a few LCA ppl in the shuttle all going to the same accommodation as you.
  
Collecting keys:
 
  
* Please submit your keys at: https://frase.id.au/lca2015

* Super shuttle https://www.supershuttle.co.nz/Default.aspx

I wouldn't sign a key without a copy/recital of fingerprint from owner or assertion that reproduction in hashed/MAC'd keylisting is correct)''
+
** The best known in Auckland for Airport shuttle service.
 +
** They are at the airport and so there's no need to book for trips that start from the Airport to Auckland City.
 +

** This means for 5 ppl it works out cheaper than the airbus and you have a door to door service.
