The School of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science at Victoria
University will be hosting us this year. They are in the process of
getting the website ready and working out other details.
Talk proposals are due in November to allow us to publish the schedule
before people go on Xmas break so they can organise expenses and time of
with their company.
The idea is that the schedule will be 80+ percent ready by then. We know
a few talks will be late but to ensure that the schedule is filled early
a big priority will be given to those in on time.
Even if you talk/abstract is not 100% flushed out by the close date
please contact us by then to ensure that we pencil you in.
Just a note that we don't expect a full abstract for lighting talks or
even (possibly) a topic/title at this point. People who get in early
will have a better chance however.
Please feel free to discuss with talks(a)nznog.org
More information on the lightning talks will be published in a few
We anticipate that costs for 2006 will be similar to 2005.
If you you are on a budget you might want to start saving now.
Since NZNOG will be held during term time accommodation costs will be
higher since student halls will not be available as in previous years.
We are looking at options for a large booking but feedback as to what
people are after ( Backpackers, 2 star, etc ) would be appreciated.
Please have a look at the airline sites to estimate your costs. If there
are a number of people who can't afford to fly then we may try to
arrange bus or car sharing. We will ask closer to the date.
There are opportunities available for companies to sponsor various
aspects of this meeting. For more information, contact
