As this event has been a success at past conferences, we intend to keep it but give it a bit of a twist.
Open Day will be located at Z Block, QUT Gardens Point on the Saturday immediately following the end of the main conference.
The following elements would be, we think, a great idea:
Have one lecture theatre in Z Block open to hold "Best-Of" and "Lightning" Talks. Not only will this allow more time during the main conference for normal talk sessions, it will allow the public to get a taste of the conference. The lecture theatre will also hold the Linux Australia AGM.
The time would be from 10am-3pm.
The main reason for holding it in the city is due to the high level of access to the public to the venue, with plenty of parking and public transport options.
