I received the following information about a conference here in Vancouver in April.


Documentation and Training: The User Experience Comes To Vancouver

The 8th Annual Documentation and Training Conference held for the first time on the west coast in beautiful downtown Vancouver, BC. This year, we focus on the increasing importance of the user experience in our work as technical communication and training professionals. Specifically, we focus our energies on the new tools and emerging technologies that are changing customer expectations including: structured blogging, wikis, user-generated content, podcasting, hosted content management, YouTube, AJAX, Flex, the Semantic Web, DITA, S1000D, experience design, information architecture, and XML syndication. Each of these hot topics are creating new career opportunities for technical communicators and changing the expectations of the users we serve.

The workshops, presentations, and roundtable discussions we have lined up for you are lead by the best and brightest practitioners in our industry. Each presenter has committed to providing you with a top-notch educational experience loaded with practical information that you can use when you return to work. Registration price includes FREE pre- and post-conference half-day workshops (Adobe Captivate, the Darwin Information Typing Architecture, Information Architecture, Taxonomy Development, and Managing and Delivering Dynamic, Personalized Content.

Whether you can attend the entire show or not, you'll want to stop by our Technology Showcase -- it's free (thanks to the folks at Adobe Systems and Astoria Software). Our Technology Showcase is a one-stop shop for anyone looking for new software tools or services. Software vendors and service providers will be on hand to demonstrate their tools and tout their latest service offerings. And, of course, there's free food (and later in the day -- cocktails!)

Our keynote speaker, angel investor and structured content guru Salim Ismail, rounds out the event. He will deliver an exciting and thought-provoking message about the future of the XML publish/subscribe model of content delivery and its impact on the way we work today and in the near future. Other featured speakers include: Ann Rockley, Bernard Aschwanden, Neil Perlin, and Vancouverites Kevin Shoesmith, Rahel Bailie and Emma Hamer.
