linux.conf.au 2006 is over, come again next year!

Registration

Please Note: Registration is not a guarantee of a seat! Registrations are finalised only after payment is made in full.

What to do from here:

Instructions

Registration is easy! Start with the registration form. Fill out all of the fields and then submit the form. You can then VERIFY what you have entered, and CONFIRM it again! At this point, you will be issued a customer number. Your details and a Tax Invoice will be emailed to you.

At this point your details have been received, but you haven't paid. You will be sent to the first page of payments option: you can choose to pay by credit card immediately (hint: yes, do this), you can come back later to pay by credit card, or you can pay by money order in Australian dollars, an Australian personal cheque or a bank draft from any Australian bank in Australian dollars. Details on other payment options are on your registration confirmation email.

We can accept payment from VISA, MasterCard, Bankcard, and American Express credit cards.

At no time do your credit card details come to us (Linux Australia, Inc. or the conference organisers). They are only ever given to our credit card processing facility, CommSecure. So you don't have to trust us with any of that data (you will see that the URL will change to their server during that phase of the transaction).

You can also optionally select (free) Linux Australia, Inc membership on the registration form.

Important note

You are responsible for your own travel, and in particular for obtaining a visa or travel authority that may be required to enter New Zealand from some countries.

Professionals
