Hi Ewen and everyone else,

First of all we apologise for missing your communication with us. That was
a multi-level problem there and I encourage anyone who has concerns with
response times to contact me directly via bruce at lca2018.org and I'll do
what I can to expedite things.

I can confirm that the conference is indeed being held at the main UTS
campus in Broadway. The main plenary sessions and rego desks will be
located in the main UTS tower building (CB01), with other sessions running
in the adjoining buildings. We have updated the venue page overnight to add
some clarity: https://linux.conf.au/about/venue/

Overnight we have also finally updated the accommodation page with some
details of what we have been able to procure from nearby hotels. More
information can be found here: https://linux.conf.au/attend/accommodation/
