Format of Presentations
We are now seeking proposals for presentations at the mini-conference. We have
45 minute double-length presentations
15-20 minute full presentations
5-10 minute "lightning talks"
Please note, due to the single day available (and whole-LCA keynote before
morning tea), we expect the majority of available timeslots to be 20 minutes or
less. We have a general policy of accepting a high proportion of proposals but
handing out relativly short timeslots. Please see previous years Miniconf
schedules for examples.
Please note that in order to give a presentation or attend the Miniconf you
must be registered (and paid up) for the main linux.conf.au conference.
Presenting at the Miniconf does not entitle you to discounted or free
registration at the main conference nor priority with registration.
Unfortunately the Miniconf has no budget for sponsorship of speakers.

The APRICOT 2016 Programme Committee is responsible for the
solicitation and selection of suitable presentation and tutorial
content for the APRICOT 2016 conference (http://2016.apricot.net/).
The APIA Board selects a new Programme Committee each year and is now
seeking nominations from the community.
Eligible PC candidates are those who have attended APRICOT
conferences in the recent past, have broad technical knowledge of
Internet operations, and have reasonable familiarity with the format
of APRICOT conferences. Having constructive opinions and
ideas about how the programme content might be improved is of high
value too. PC members are expected to work actively to solicit
content and review submissions for technical merit.
The PC meets by conference call, weekly in frequency during the three
months prior to each event.
If you are interested in joining the PC and meet the above eligibility
criteria, please send a brief note to "apiasec at apia.org". The
note should include affiliation (if any) and contact details
(including e-mail address), and a brief description of why you would
make a good addition to the PC. PC members who are active and contribute
to regular meetings and submit reviews receive complimentary
registration for APRICOT 2016.
The APIA Board will accept nominations received by the end of Friday
23 October, 2015, and will announce the new PC shortly thereafter.

Not sure if this qualifies as operational, but Telstra tweeted there’s a cable cut somewhere:
Would anyone happen to know which cable it is and where it’s been cut - if that’s the case?
Am told it’s causing slowdowns with Akamai, making Apple users unhappy.
