|9.00-9.30am||Welcome and Background Installation|
Please try to install the Madagascar Package (v1.5) in the days before the workshop according to the instructions on the left margin of this webpage. If issues come up, there will be an opportunity to install the package at the start of the workshop. Remember to bring your laptop (Linux, Mac or Windows) to the session!
The Crowne Plaza Hotel is located a short walk away from the Melbourne Conference and Exhibition Centre (MCEC), see http://www.cpmelbourne.com.au, and the attached maps. Most workshops will be held in various rooms within the hotel, but the room may be changed to accommodate final registration numbers. A screen in the lobby will help you to locate the correct room for your workshop.
Most of you will have pre-registered and you will only need to collect your name tag from the registration desk which we will set up in the hotel lobby. Please allow some extra time to do this as there are several concurrent workshops on most days and a large number of delegates participating. Late registration, at the registration desk, may be possible if there is room available, but no guarantees.
Starting time for your workshop is 0900 and we plan to finish at 1700. Please arrive early to allow time for both registration and some setting up of facilities.
Tea and coffee will be provided on arrival, and at morning and afternoon breaks, with a selection of Chef’s bakery items. Lunch will be a buffet with a range of hot and cold choices including vegetarian and gluten free dishes. If you have additional special dietary requirements you should advise the venue (Kate Jones on 03-96482779) in advance to ensure that your needs are met.
Transport and Parking
Most of you will probably be staying in the CBD, close to the MCEC, but if not there are a range of transport options available to you, including trains and trams, as shown on the transport map attached. Parking is available close to the hotel with a discounted rate for hotel guests as detailed in an attachment. There is also a large car park facility at the Exhibition Centre itself, south of the Yarra; additional information is available at http://www.mcec.com.au/ .
