Teched Australia 2005 will run August 31-Sept 2nd on Australia's beautiful Gold Coast. 

& New Zealand while not officially announced will run Mon 29th – Wed 31st and likely be in Auckland 

The tracks will be the same for both Australia and New Zealand and as the content owner for both events I am suggesting we go with the following 8 tracks:

   1 Security
   2 Server & Mgmt Infrastructure
   3 Messaging & Collab (inclusive of Portals)
   4 Data
   5 Developer Tools
   6 Smart Client & Inclusive of Mobile
   7 Business Applications & Business Intelligence
   8 Architecture

For 2005 I would like the TechEd Session Selection criteria much more a community driven process and will create a separate blog entry for each potential session and link those blog entries to this article so you can find, comment, suggest alterations etc.
