Call For Papers

AUUG97 Conference
September 3-5, 1997
Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre,

Theme: "Technical Solutions"

The 1997 AUUG winter conference will be held at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre, Queensland, Australia, between September 3rd and 5th.

The conference will be preceded by two days of tutorials, on September 1st and 2nd.

The program committee invites proposals for papers and tutorials relating to:

As the theme of this years conference is "Technical Solutions", papers with a strong technical flavour are particularl/index.

Presentations may be given as tutorials, technical papers, or management studies. Technical papers are designed for those who need in-depth knowledge, whereas management studies present case studies of real-life experiences in the conference's fields of interest.

All presentations must be accompanied by a written paper for the conference proceedings.

Speakers may select one of two presentation formats:

Technical presentation:
a 25 minute talk, with 5 minutes for questions;
Management presentation:
a 20-25 minute talk, with 5-10 minutes for questions (ie a total 30 minutes);

Panel sessions will also be timetabled in the conference and speakers should indicate their willingness to participate, and may like to suggest panel topics.

Tutorials, which may be of either a technical or management orientation, provide a more thorough presentation, of either a half-day or full-day duration.

Representing the largest Unix and Open Systems event held in Australia (with an average 600 attendees based on the 1995 and 1996 conference attendance) this conference offers an unparallelled opportunity to present your ideas and experiences to an audience with a major influence on the direction of computing in Australia.

September is a very good time for being in the southern hemisphere, and you would be well advised to timetable additional travel within Australia and take the chance to see some more of the country. Brisbane is ideally placed for further travel on the eastern seaboard.


Those proposing to submit papers should submit an extended abstract (1-3 pages) and a brief biography, and clearly indicate their preferred presentation format.

Those submitting tutorial proposals should submit an outline of the tutorial and a brief biography, and clearly indicate whether the tutorial is of half-day or full-day duration.


Presenters of papers are afforded complimentary conference registration.

Tutorial presenters may select 25% of the profit of their session OR complimentary conference registration. Past experience suggests that a successful tutorial session of either duration can generate a reasonable return to the presenter.

Tutorial presenters who are interested in arranging a follow-on tour of Australia with repeat presentations of their course should indicate this in submitting a proposal. This can only be undertaken by joint arrangement with AUUG, and must follow after the conference to ensure its financial viability.
