You can also access the full program for the Salon by clicking on the attachment.
Unfortunately, despite being Australian, as I live 4500kms away, I won't be making it to the ccSalon (but you will be able to see one of my CC-licensed Flickr images on display). If you're in Brisbane or can get there, head to the party and wave the Creative Commons banner down under!
During the day of the ccSalon, Creative Commons Australia is also holding an industry forum looking at CC with/in Government; Open Access, Education + Libraries; and Creativity, Media + the Arts. Finally, don't forget that the main Creative Commons organisation is in the midst of their annual fundraising effort (please give if you can!).
Update (30/11): To my great pleasure I have discovered that Melanie Cook's photos from the ccSalon include one where you can see someone looking at one of my photos:
