The organisation of the Oz-IA retreat being held in the first weekend in October is coming along nicely. The venue (Mercure Hotel just adjacent to Central Railway Station in Sydney, Australia) has been lined up; the speaker list is taking shape; and the level of interest is building.
The retreat is planned to be a semi-formal series of practical sessions on information architecture and related topics, aimed at practicing IA's and those within the broader industry interested in expanding their knowledge of the theory and practice. There'll be case study presentations; detailed how-to sessions; and general 'where are we going' discussions. And there'll be opportunities a-plenty to meet and mingle with peers and uber-IAs from Australia and around the world.
More information will be forthcoming in the next few weeks & months, but pencil in those dates (conveniently following on from this year's Web Directions conference). It should be a cracker!
