It is useful to research the following: press releases,  the website, blogger, and the faces of the crew. 
With this information you will have broad topics and subjects to lead your conversation with the members of the jury and you will feel pretty familiar with unknown people going to judge you.

Firstly, get a complete brief of the type or Miss or person the casting is meant for.
Dressing like prescribed increases your chances of being selected. If you do not have the dress code inform the agent or organization about it.
