The key things you need to know are;
  
Here's a list of the open CFPs, with close dates and links. If you are attending LCA and have a ticket, why not throw in a proposal? [https://linux.conf.au/register/info You can also buy a single miniconf ticket].  
+
* 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.
  
 +
Note:
 +
''Previously information had reported that Wool Museum was VGA only, this is no longer the case.''

Revision as of 12:27, 27 January 2016

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.

Note: 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) File:Speaker-template-lca2016.otp

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

What events are on at linux.conf.au?

What are the visa requirements for Australia?

Under Australia's universal visa system, all visitors to Australia must have a valid visa to travel to and enter Australia (other than New Zealand passport holders who will normally be granted a Special Category visa on arrival, provided they meet health and character requirements; and permanent residents of Norfolk Island who may be granted a Permanent Resident of Norfolk Island visa on arrival).

There are many visa options available to people wishing to visit Australia. For Speakers,your Speaker Liaison has further information on visa options and can provide fact sheets and guidance. Should you require a Letter of Invitation for your visa application, your Speaker Liaison will also be able to assist. Please note that Letters of Invitation will not be provided for Delegates.

Further information on Australian visa and immigration requirements can be found at Department of Immigration and Border Protection.

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.

What to bring to linux.conf.au

  • Laptop, phone, camera, chargers etc - most people bring a laptop, tablet etc. Free WiFi is available. Many Delegates enjoy hacking, coding and developing together at linux.conf.au.
  • Sunscreen, sunglasses and a water bottle - Geelong, although coastal, can have high summer temperatures. The conference venue is a block from the beach, feel free to bring swimming gear.
  • Clothes and toiletries - the conference venue is a block away from a Westfield shopping centre, so you'll be OK if you forget anything. Remember to bring any medication you may need.
  • Identification and if international, your passport - for registration purposes, we may need to see identification, and if you're a student, we'll need to see your student card. Geelong has plenty of beer, and in accordance with liquor laws, you may be asked for ID to be served alcohol.
  • Cash or card - you will likely have some incidental expenses during the conference. There's an ATM (Westpac) at the conference venue, and most nearby venues take card.
  • An appetite - Geelong has a magnificent range of eateries and restaurants all within walking distance.
