Normal talks go for 45minutes, lightning talks go for 15minutes. If there a lot of questions please save them for after the talks. There is room for two full talks and one lightning. Please let me know which length your talk is when volunteering.
The talks are performed in the function room.

MLUG is known for doing live demos and it's something which makes our group unique. We would like to continue this tradition so if you do a live demo as part of your talk please make sure it fits within the time limit. If it does take a long time you can setup the demo and perform the demo after all the talks have been done.
The MLUG mailing list is great place to keep up to date on Linux news and events and discuss Linux/open source related questions.

MLUG is not connected to these companies in any way. These are just companies we have found that are selling notebooks/computers with the option of Linux pre-installed or no OS installed.
http://www.linuxnow.com.au/ - Lots of options and lots of distros on offer (Melbourne based)
http://www.horize.com – Horize notebooks, better specs than some of the stores
http://www.logicalblueone.com.au - Offer Ubuntu or No OS, competitive prices (Horize only)
http://www.pioneercomputers.com.au/ - Good range, plenty of options.
http://www.elx.com.au/cat/systems - Sydney based but can deliver.
