PixInsight workshop in Australia

Folks,

Vicent Peris from the PixInsight Development Team is interested in offering one of his workshops in Australia. Current thinking is that he would do the workshop in Sydney in early February next year. It would be a two day event (14/15 hours total) and the cost would be approximately 250 (currently about $368 AUD).

He'd need to get around 25 people along to make the trip pay for itself and he would also need some local help with the logistics. Hence this post to gauge the level of interest from the IIS community and see if there is anybody in Sydney willing to volunteer to assist.

Here's some information on a workshop he is doing in the USA in June: https://pixinsight.com/workshops/cfa-2014/ You'll note it is somewhat cheaper than the proposed AU one. That's sadly due to the tyranny of distance.

Please post in this thread if you're interested in coming, helping or both. Any other constructive feedback would be appreciated. I think it's a great opportunity to learn from an expert and I will be there with bells on

Thanks,
Rick.

I'd definitely be interested in attending, and would also be willing to help out in whatever way I could.
Cheers,

Thanks for the comments, everyone! I've asked Vicent what sort of help he needs. I expect it will be stuff like arranging the venue, audio-visual stuff, catering, etc.

Cheers,
Rick.

Thanks, everyone. It looks like there is a good level of interest so Vicent is keen.

Here's the deal with local assistance:

Quote:
I would need local support to find a good workshop venue and to provide the right practical info (restaurants, hotels...). My collaborators come always for free to the workshop and I also offer a private session with them apart from the weekend.
If anybody is willing to volunteer PM me and I'll put you in touch with V.

Cheers,
Rick.
