The conference organisers start the week by welcoming everyone and letting everyone know the general housekeeping requirements of the conference.
From Tuesday through to Friday the day starts off with a Keynote presentation. We are really excited by our invited guests this year and will be making announcements very soon.
Talks are 35-45 minute presentations on a single topic. These are generally presented in lecture format and form the bulk of the available conference slots.
Tutorials are 90 minute interactive learning sessions. Particpants will gain some hands on knowledge or experience in a topic. These are generally presented in a classroom format and are interactive or hands-on in nature. Some tutorials will require prepartation work to be done or some hardware to be purchased prior to their attendance - please check the individual tutorial descriptions for more information.
On Friday afternoon the traditional lightning talks (3-5 minutes each) take place.
The final part of the conference will include a thanks to all volunteers, the charity raffle draw, announcement of the next year’s LCA location and formal closing.
