The intent of this page is to allow conf organisers to know who's expected at the airport when.
+
== Miniconf Program ==
  
You might also be able to use the info below to connect up with people who are on the same flight as you, arrange taxi shares, and so on, so '''leave some contact info''' in the entries that you create.
+
Here is the draft of the program for the miniconf. No doubt we will change the build sessions around a little bit.
 +
Also we hope to add a few more lightning talks closer to the day.

== OpenRadio Miniconf Call for Presentations at LCA2015 ==
 +
=== Submission Dates ===
 +
 
 +
Sunday 14th December 2014: Deadline for submissions
 +
Sunday 21st December 2014: Announcements of selected proposals
 +
Monday 12th January 2015: Open Radio Miniconf
 +
 
 +
=== 'No pressure' policy ===
 +
The Open Radio Miniconf is a low-pressure event, and we strongly encourage anyone who has an idea for an radio-related talk to submit a proposal even if you've never presented at a conference before. Please share this CfP with anyone you know who may otherwise not consider submitting a proposal.
 +
 
 +
=== Commitment to Diversity ===
 +
We are especially keen to present a diverse range of experiences and voices, and actively encourage women and people from other groups that are frequently under-represented at tech events to submit a proposal. Please share this CfP with anyone you know who may fit with this objective.
 +
 
 +
=== Suggested Presentation Topics ===
 +
 
 +
Any topic which is related to both radio and open source technologies is considered on-topic for the Open Radio Miniconf.
 +
 
 +
Some ideas include:
 +
 
 +
* Hardware for SDR
 +
* Software for SDR
 +
* Protocols over the air
 +
* Digital voice
 +
* Understandning data modes
 +
* Encoding and Decoding data
 +
* Logging data or voice
 +
* Positioning
 +
* Radio direction finding
 +
* Here's a cool thing I did with my SDR
 +
* Take a look at my new modem for digital modes
 +
* Simple data links with cheap radio chips
 +
 
 +
=== Presentation Format ===
 +
Presentations will be 'lightning talks' session with multiple 5-15 minute mini-presentations. Ideally we would like to see proposals for longer lightning talks, you can also just present on the day (this is a very low-pressure way to ease yourself into presenting, so please have a think in advance about what you'd like to present).
 +
 
 +
=== Need some help? ===
 +
If you have an idea (or the beginning of an idea) for a presentation for the Open Radio Miniconf, we'd be very happy to talk it through with you to help you develop it further. Email Kim VK5FJ at vk5fj@wia.org.au or ping him at @vk5fj on Twitter to start the conversation.
 +
 
 +
=== Code of Conduct ===
 +
Anyone presenting at the Open Miniconf is bound by the same Code of Conduct as presenters and conference attendees of the main conference. The full LCA2015 Code of Conduct is at http://linux.conf.au/cor/code_of_conduct
 +
 
 +
To help ensure that presentations comply with the Code of Conduct, we require presenters to submit a copy of their presentation/slide deck for review by Monday 5th January, 2015 (one week prior to the start of LCA).
 +
 
 +
=== Presenter Responsibilities ===
 +
Presenters at the Open Radio Miniconf must be registered attendees of the main LCA2015 conference. Presenters are responsible for their own conference registration, travel, and accommodation costs. The LCA2015 committee has made available a small number of miniconf-only passes that we will be using to enable Amateur Radio enthusiasts to present who would not otherwise be able to attend.
 +
 
 +
=== How to Submit Proposals ===
 +
 
 +
Please submit your proposal(s) by email Kim VK5FJ at vk5fj@wia.org.au
 +
We encourage you to submit multiple proposals if you have multiple ideas.

== Aims ==
 +
 
 +
This will be the second Open Radio Miniconf, this time part build-a-thon, part lightning talks.
 +
 
 +
There are three specific aims for this coming LCA, the three layers;
 +
 
 +
1) Build an understanding of radio and build an SDR transceiver to cover an ISM band and the HAM HF bands.
 +
 
 +
2) Build an understanding of the software required to Rx and Tx
 +
 
 +
3) Encourage software developers to study existing over the air protocols and start to design new ones.
 +
 
 +
That might not sound like a lot, but we still have a big challenge to complete the second goal. The third is obviously ongoing and we hope to be able to help facilitate new works on the ISM and HAM bands.
 +
 
 +
Mark VK5QI has decided that his experience with the [http://www.norcalqrp.org/files/Tayloe_mixer_x3a.pdf Tayloe mixer] with [http://www.qsl.net/zl1wtt/I&Q.htm  I&Q] as used in the SoftRocks is firm ground on which to build. He has been inspired by [http://nt7s.com/2014/06/a-prototype-for-a-si5351-based-ssb-rig/ some new SSB project by NT7S], using a newly available DDS, the multiple output [https://www.adafruit.com/search?q=SI5351&b=1 SI5351]. Completing the picture, the controller is the well known [http://arduino.cc/en/Main/arduinoBoardNano Arduino], designed by Massimo Banzi (check the recent [http://soldersmoke.blogspot.com.au/2014/09/soldersmoke-podcast-165-arduinos.html soldersmoke podcast #165]).
 +
 
 +
So moving forward the second prototype is currently on the workbend at Marks QTH. The software stack, while complex can be simplified to using existing applications like [http://w1hkj.com/Fldigi.html FLDIGI] or building the [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNU_Radio GNU Radio][http://gnuradio.squarespace.com/ stack].
 +
 
 +
Following on the the how in the now, we need to look forward. Thinking about the existing protocols, the current ways of encoding data on the wire and over the air, we are aiming to approach the design of new over the air protocols.
 +
 
 +
We are currently working through the materials for the build-a-thon. Once we are happy with them we will update this page and put an announcement here.

OpenRadio Miniconf registrations

Good morning all,

So now would be a good time to open up the registration for the OpenRadio MiniConf. This is also a good time as a reminder that the CfP for the miniconf will be closing on the 14th of December.

As part of the registration you are booking a seat and a kit for the OpenRadio miniconf.

Since this is our first build'a'thon at LCA we are setting a limit on seats to 30. We are aiming to dedicate enough time to each of the participants to complete the kit on the day.

The whole day will be devoted to building the understanding the kit. As we have limited seats, please order only one kit.

Extra kits will be made available after the conference.

Because of the time lines, we will be ordering kits in advance and will deliver them directly at the miniconf.

Some ideas include:

  • Hardware for SDR
  • Software for SDR
  • Protocols over the air
  • Digital voice

Aims

This will be the second Open Radio Miniconf, this time part build-a-thon, part lightning talks.

There are three specific aims for this coming LCA, the three layers;

1) Build an understanding of radio and build an SDR transceiver to cover an ISM band and the HAM HF bands.

2) Build an understanding of the software required to Rx and Tx

3) Encourage software developers to study existing over the air protocols and start to design new ones.

That might not sound like a lot, but we still have a big challenge to complete the second goal. The third is obviously ongoing and we hope to be able to help facilitate new works on the ISM and HAM bands.

Mark VK5QI has decided that his experience with the Tayloe mixer with I&Q as used in the SoftRocks is firm ground on which to build. He has been inspired by some new SSB project by NT7S, using a newly available DDS, the multiple output SI5351. Completing the picture, the controller is the well known Arduino, designed by Massimo Banzi (check the recent soldersmoke podcast #165).

So moving forward the second prototype is currently on the workbend at Marks QTH. The software stack, while complex can be simplified to using existing applications like FLDIGI or building the GNU Radiostack.

Following on the the how in the now, we need to look forward. Thinking about the existing protocols, the current ways of encoding data on the wire and over the air, we are aiming to approach the design of new over the air protocols.

We are currently working through the materials for the build-a-thon. Once we are happy with them we will update this page and put an announcement here.
