Regional Delegate Program

Applications have now closed. Thank you to all who entered.
LUV has now chosen the Victorian winner and is waiting for the conference organisers and SUN to announce them.

Thinking of attending 2003,
but don't have the means to get there? Fear not; thanks to Sun Microsystems, the organisers are running a Regional Delegate Program, that allows one person from each state and territory to attend with all major expenses paid for them courtesy of Sun. Read on for more.

If you want to attend and live in Victoria but don't have the means to get there we can help.

We are now calling for applications. Applications should include:

  • Your name, address (must be in Victoria Australia), email address, and a contact phone number
  • How long you have been involved with open source
  • When you first started with Linux
  • List the open source projects you have been involved with. Consider including the following details about each project:
    • Name of project
    • URL to project
    • If relevant the approximate time you started and finished with the project
    • Brief (1 or 2 paragraphs) description of what your contribution to the project has been. This may be writing code, helping with documentation, submitting bug reports or anything else you have done to help.
  • Any other activities (eg user group) you have been involved with to help Open Source
  • Mention any financial circumstances which may prevent you from otherwise attending, eg unemployed or student
  • Sell yourself. One or two paragraphs explaining why you should be Victoria's representative with this prestigious prize.

Applications or questions should be sent to and must arrive before midnight 30 November 2002.

Preference will be given to people who meet the following criteria:

  • Is actively contributing to open source (does not have to be coding)
  • Currently living in Victoria, Australia
  • Would otherwise have been unable to attend (eg student or unemployed)

As entries are open to all Victorians, regardless of user group affiliations you do not have to be a member of LUV to enter
(but that needn't stop you joining).

Included in the package is:

  • Return economy airfare from Victoria to Perth and back
  • Full Professional registration (includes conference dinner)
  • Accommodation at Currie Hall (at the University of Western Australia, the conference location) for the duration of the conference.

With the exception of the conference dinner, the only thing not included is lunch and dinner.
