To the Linux Australia Community,

We wanted to apply for a further grant application around the
Stemformatics Data Portal project, this time around travel expenses.

Sadia Waleem was one of the students who was on the Stemformatics
Data Portal project (https://portal.stemformatics.org).

She has been accepted to talk at the second Open Source and
Bioinformatics miniconf as part of Linux Conference Australia on 22
January 2018 at University of Technology, Sydney.

We are hoping that with this talk we may attract more people to help
contribute to the Open Source Stemformatics ecosystem, especially
around the Data Portal. We have been improving our documentation
and will be updating our website to provide more information about
how to contribute code to this and other Stemformatics projects.

I estimate the flights will cost around $300 via Jetstar (normally $139
or $149 without check-in). I wasn't sure if there would be a provision
to include taxi fares to and from Melbourne airport for Sadia. We would
be happy to pay the taxi fares in Sydney, as we have another
developer, Isha Nagpal, who is also speaking at the same event.

I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have around this.

Below is the acceptance email from Alan Rubin about the miniconf.

*Hi Sadia,Aaron Darling and I are organizing the second Open Source
andBioinformatics miniconf as part of Linux Conference Australia on
22January 2018 at University of Technology, Sydney.We would be very excited
to have you come and speak about yourStemformatics Data Portal project,
particularly because it was supporteddirectly by Linux Australia. I think
that the highly technical (but mostlynon-scientific) audience will be very
interested in hearing about how youaddressed some of the challenges in
dealing with large biological datasets.Conference registration is required,
but we are able to secure single-dayregistrations for invited miniconf
speakers. The conference website ishttp://lca2018.linux.org.au/
<http://lca2018.linux.org.au/>I¹m happy to answer any questions you may
have. Please let me know if youare able to accept at your earliest
convenience. Hope to hear from yousoon.Best,AlanAlan F Rubin,
