<big>'''Welcome to the Linux.conf.au 2014 wiki'''</big>
  
This LCA is shaping up to be full of astronomical goodness, and we're very near a bunch&trade; of very cool radio astronomy facilities.
+
This wiki is provided for those attending linux.conf.au 2014. Feel free to add and share information here for the benefit of all delegates.  
  
To complement the Astronomy Miniconf, we're aiming to organise at least one site visit to an operational astronomy facility - most likely the [http://www.ivec.org/ivec-projects/pawsey/ Pawsey Centre], a new supercomputing facility that will be part of the SKA project.

===Perth Observatory Stargazing Night===
+
==Accommodation==
  
We've had very strong interest from delegates on the LCA2014 chat list in attending the Perth Observatory for a night-time stargazing tour. Everyone needs to make their own booking, and bookings need to be made soon as spots will fill up quickly. The observatory doesn't have an online booking/payment system, so you'll need to call them with your credit card details to reserve your spot.
+
* [[Campus accommodation]]
  
Bookings can be made by phoning (08) 9293 8255 between 8.30am and 3.30pm (AWST, 3 hours behind AEDT), Monday to Friday. Tickets are $38 for adults, $28 for children/concession card holders.
