The '''Unprofessional Delegates Networking Session''' (or '''UnPDNS''') is the exciting event that gets run alongside the Professional Delegates Networking Session. It's for everyone who can't (or don't want to) go to the PDNS.
+
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.
  
We took a break in 2013 when running the UnPDNS would have required us to wake up before 7am. Now that the PDNS is back in the evening, we're back for 2014. Woo.
+
The rules will be the same a for Brisbane in 2011:
  
* '''When:''' Thursday night (when the PDNS is on).
+
1. Talks are for 90 seconds.
* '''Where:''' Site 5, Matilda Bay Reserve, right next to the University. See [http://www.dec.wa.gov.au/images/stories/parks/key_attractions/mb_reserve_map_2010_2.jpg this map] for info.
+
* '''What:''' A BBQ (to be confirmed). Food will be $5, and we'll be selling various soft drinks. Alcohol is '''strictly BYO only'''; selling alcohol is in contravention of Western Australia liquor licensing laws.
+
  
=== Attending ===
+
2. You must put your name and topic on the wiki page if you want to present.
  
Add your name so we can figure out how much food to buy. If you're a vegetarian or vegan, add a '''(V)''', so we know how much vegetarian stuff to buy.
+
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'!

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.
