== Speaker Information Pack ==
Most questions for Speakers are answered in the
[[Speaker Information Pack]]
The key things you need to know are;
* Your presentation should be in 16:9 ratio.
* Your device should output 720p (1280x720).
* All rooms will '''only''' have HDMI connectors.
** If you forget your HDMI adapter, the A/V team ''might'' have one you can use - but there are no guarantees!
** Please contact the speaker liaison if you '''must''' use VGA output. We do have a limited number of VGA to HDMI converters, but they frequently cause issues.
''Previously information had reported that Wool Museum was VGA only, this is no longer the case.''
== Presentation template ==
You're not required at all to use this Presentation Template, but it's here if you need one (LibreOffice Impress template, .odt format)
== What are the guidelines for giving a presentation at linux.conf.au? ==
Your presentation format is entirely up to you.
We expect that you'll be presenting from your own laptop, but if this is an issue please get in touch with your [[Speaker Liaison]] and we can make alternate arrangements. We usually ask for presentation material after the conference so that it can be made available.
Each presentation slot is 50 minutes, except tutorials which have a double slot of one hour and 40 minutes. It is expected that your talk will go for approximately 40 minutes, with 10 minutes for questions, unless you prefer to take questions during your presentation. For tutorials, it is assumed that questions will be asked during the tutorial rather than at the end. Room monitors will be stationed in each conference room and will help guide you
with timing and identifying questions from the audience. You will need to have practiced beforehand however to ensure that you don't go significantly over or under time.
''NOTE: When answering questions, we request that you repeat the question for the benefit of the recording and for the audience.''
== What facilities are there in the presentation venues? ==
These are outlined in the [[Speaker Information Pack]].
If you have special requirements for your presentation, please make contact with your [[Speaker Liaison]].
== What is the Schwag Bag and what's in it? ==
[[Schwag Bag]]
== Will the conference be recorded and streamed? ==
Yes. All sessions in the conference are recorded and streamed, unless you declined permission for recording during Registration. If you have any concerns about streaming and recording, please contact your [[Speaker Liaison]].
== Will I be picked up at the airport? ==
Yes, if you arrive on 31st January at Melbourne Tullamarine (MEL) or Avalon (AVV).
We need to know who's arriving when so please make sure your details are entered on the [[Airport arrivals and departures page]].
Also see [[Transport]].
==What's to eat?==
See [[Food]].
