The next work item for the Australian Architect Forum that i have been helping on is content.  By consensus of the folks involved the AAF content will be decided by the following process.

Step 1.

Create a content committee of interested partners (chosen from sponsors and online interest) -

Status -Done.

Step 2. 

Would-be sponsors are to collect and submit a list of possible round tables to the content committee. (see mine below)

Status - In process

Step 3.

The content committee will then cull this down to 3 round tables for each gold sponsor and one for each silver sponsor.  

Status - To be started this week on the fourth AAF Content conference call.

 

Step 4.

Allocate round tables into the rooms and meta tag the round tables with relevant categories.  For instance i have suggested the session "Architecting for Security", depending on the content this round table could have the following tags: "Security", "Patterns", "SOA", "Integration" etc

Status - Not started yet.
