Around 100 attendees are expected to attend the conference which is the foremost residential user group conference in New Zealand.

The keynote international speaker is Elizabeth Zwicky, a director at Counterpane Internet Security - a managed security services company. She has been doing large-scale system administration and security for 15 years, and is one of the authors of the O'Reilly book "Building Internet Firewalls", now in its second edition. She is delivering a tutorial on Wednesday 4 October and a paper on Friday 6 October at 1530hours.

The closing keynote address will be asking the question whether New Zealand is to be an amusement park for the Developed North or a Global Knowledge Economy Player. Professor Howard Frederick, an authority in the field of global communications, economic development and new technologies plus the author of New Zealand's 1999 Knowledge Economy Report will present his views on this.

The conference will also receive reports on the latest developments in global Internet governance with regards to ICANN.
