We welcome members of the press to participate and capture the spirit of linux.conf.au. We have complimentary media passes available so please contact us <seven-contact AT lca2007 DOT linux DOT org DOT au> while we still have some left. Simply let us know which publication you are from and we'll sort it out from there. Media passes include access to all talks, keynotes, tutorials, miniconfs and the Professional Delegates Networking Session. If you would like to attend the Penguin Dinner, it will be $60.
We'll have a press conference during linux.conf.au and we can also set up personal interviews for you. Just let us know who you are interested in chatting to and we'll make sure it happens. We ask that you respect that some speakers may not be willing or available to speak or be photographed at any particular time. We will provide a dedicated press room for interviews and such to take place.
