We are encouraging all students, graduates and linux hobbyists who would like to contribute to the conference's success to step up and offer your services as a volunteer. This is a good opportunity to get a glimpse of how a conference is run, and to get some real hands on experience in many aspects of conference operations.

We're looking for volunteers to work in many areas but the help and registration desk, general administration, and audio visual team members are the most sought after. We need volunteers who are willing to commit to at least four days of the conference, we'll try and allocate some free time to attend a few talks for each volunteer, but that will depend on the number of volunteers and on the work load at any point during the conference.

 +
* Around the CBD, suburbs and rural / country you can use Telstra 3G(nextg) and 4G LTE
