Line 1: Line 1:
This year the lightning talks are being held on Wednesday morning after the Official Opening. There will be a second session on Friday during the closing session.
+
This is an index of all the "Birds of a feather" sessions organised and run on an informal basis by attendees of the conference.
  
The rules will be the same a for Brisbane in 2011:
+
==TBA:==
  
1. Talks are for 90 seconds.
+
* [[HAM Radio BoF]]
 +
* [[OpenRadio BoF]]
 +
* [[CAcert]]
 +
* [[Parents of Teenagers BOF]]
  
2. You must put your name and topic on the wiki page if you want to present.
+
==BoFs Recurring on Multiple Days==
  
3. If you want to use a set of slides, these must be in a pdf file either emailed to bunyipr@gmail.com by 8:30 on Wednesday or provided on a usb flash drive by 9am. There is absolutely no guarantee your slides will be synchronised with your talk or shown at all so have a 'Plan B'!
+
=== Running BoF - New location ===
  
4. Presentations for Friday must reach me by 10 am Friday either by email or handed to me at the keynote. I will try to concatenate them into a single file, so please provide in open document as well as a pdf.  
+
6am conference mornings from the back of St Georges college on Park Ave. Anyone driving can park right next to this location on Park Ave and it is in the park already.
  
5. The video of your talk and slides will be published under a Creative Commons, By Attribution license.
+
Conference mornings, Perth has no Daylight saving and it will be hot in January, we will be keen to get a morning run out of the way early.
 +
In past years we have met up at 6am to head out for a run, anyone keen to join in is welcome. There are a large number of options in the Kings park area to really enjoy a morning run.
  
6. The time available on Friday is limited so presentations are limited to 90 secs and we may have to limit the number, so get in quick!
+
My initial suggestion is meet out the front of Trinity College each morning and we can find runs to do into Kings Park and along the river. I have done some runs in both areas in the past and it really is worthwhile. There ares ome interesting features such as Jacobs Ladder, a set of stairs many runners test themselves out on at the end of Cliff St at the other end of the park. Good trails through the park and some great scenery along the river for easier runs.
  
If you wish to give a talk, please put your name and presentation title in the list below. Format as a sequential number, your name, Title of Presentation.
+
Also possibly of interest to anyone arriving early (there in time for Saturday morning 4th of Jan or still around the following Saturday morning 11th Jan) there are free timed weekly 5km runs all around Australia called Parkrun. They started in the UK and there a re a huge number over there. In Perth there are 3 on and the closest to the campus is Claisebrook Cove. http://www.parkrun.com.au/claisebrookcove/
Presentation filename should be in the following format nn_FirstName_Lastname.pdf where nn is the sequential number below.

Thanks,

I (Steven Hanley) will be competing in both of them as an out of state tourist. To compete and get a time you need to register and bring a printed barcode to the event.

BoFs Recurring on Multiple Days

Running BoF - New location

6am conference mornings from the back of St Georges college on Park Ave. Anyone driving can park right next to this location on Park Ave and it is in the park already.

Conference mornings, Perth has no Daylight saving and it will be hot in January, we will be keen to get a morning run out of the way early. In past years we have met up at 6am to head out for a run, anyone keen to join in is welcome. There are a large number of options in the Kings park area to really enjoy a morning run.

My initial suggestion is meet out the front of Trinity College each morning and we can find runs to do into Kings Park and along the river. I have done some runs in both areas in the past and it really is worthwhile. There ares ome interesting features such as Jacobs Ladder, a set of stairs many runners test themselves out on at the end of Cliff St at the other end of the park. Good trails through the park and some great scenery along the river for easier runs.

Also possibly of interest to anyone arriving early (there in time for Saturday morning 4th of Jan or still around the following Saturday morning 11th Jan) there are free timed weekly 5km runs all around Australia called Parkrun. They started in the UK and there a re a huge number over there. In Perth there are 3 on and the closest to the campus is Claisebrook Cove. http://www.parkrun.com.au/claisebrookcove/

I (Steven Hanley) will be competing in both of them as an out of state tourist. To compete and get a time you need to register and bring a printed barcode to the event.

Hackerspace Visits

The Artifactory will be open on Monday and Friday evenings from 7pm.

See the Artifactory, chat with other Hackerspace delegates, touch up your pet hacks. We'll fire up the barbecue on Friday night following the LCA closing talks.

Public Transport isn't great, bus route 400 comes within 700m, route 98 is faster but stops 1.3Km out.

The Industrial Park is largely abandoned after 5pm, so there's plenty of parking for those with transport.

Any carpool drivers available? Add yourself here:

 Jane Example            4
