Hi Cameron,

linux.conf.au has a team of "ghosts", people who have helped to
organise earlier conferences and give some guidance to the organisers
of the latest one.

Their distilled wisdom is at http://wiki.linux.org.au/LCA_HOWTO . It
seems their howto was partly inspired by another for the ECOOP
conference, which can be found at

The lca bid guidelines at
http://wiki.linux.org.au/Linux.conf.au_Bid_Guidelines might be useful
too. The page includes links to some actual proposals.
