[rs 2008-08-08] Sent an email to QUT ask what times of year are suitable, and other minutiae.

- Z411 (530, Theatre, Proposed Keynote venue)
- Z401 (300, Theatre, Overflow for Keynote)
- Z406 (300, Theatre)
- Z303 (170, Theatre)

- Z407 (Possible Registration Desk, need to negotiate with TALSS who don't normally use the space outside of semesters)
- Z412 (Computer Room, we may be able to get access to this, not sure about use of computers. If we could use computers, would be an ideal terminal room)
Mark also indicated that he will cover the costs of telephone for the organisers, and any network reconfiguration by ITS needed for the conference.
