The Web Directions team are conducting an outreach program this year, and are bringing a new side conference: "Web Directions UX" to Melbourne. Heaps of top Aussie and international user experience speakers.

A full day two track conference, plus an optional extra day of workshops, focussing on concepts, technologies and techniques for building great user experiences on the web.

I'll be there. Check it out: http://ux08.webdirections.org/
