The name list for the group photo is almost complete. Thanks to everyone who filled in the sheet at the conference.
If you weren't able to fill in the sheet, or think you can remember the names of everyone who attended, you can help us fill out the remaining spots. Head on over to the group photo page and if you can put a name to number 6, 19, 34 or 47, let us know by e-mail.

Photos are now up and can be accessed at picasaweb.google.com/nzcsrsc. A big thank you goes to Edwin Oude Vrielink, our official photographer, for supplying us with such crystal clear, lasting memories of the conference.
Due to unforseen circumstances, the opening ceremony will now start at 3pm (instead of 4pm as previously advertised). The registration desk will also open earlier at 1pm. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

The BuildIT Workshop topics are now up. This year, participants can choose up to four of the eight topics offered. We've got some awesome topics in two categories: Present and Future. The categories define skills that students need to know 'now' ... or 'later' once they have graduated. Have a look at the topics and decide which four you might want to attend on the day. There is no extra registration for these sessions.
Remember to join us on Tuesday lunchtime for chalk'n'talk sessions over lunch in the C-Block foyer.
Members from Industry (e.g. experienced software developers) will be joining us to have small, interactive discussion groups to share their stories and talk about things that are relevant in the ICT industry world today. These group sessions will be very unstructured - allowing participants to mingle and participate as much as they want.
Grab your lunch and gather around a group ... or walk between groups ... and participate in the discussions that will be taking place around the lecture block.
