Our Conferences and Seminars

HyperWrite, in conjunction with WritersUA, hosted the Australasian Online Documentation and Content Conference (AODC) annually from 1998 to 2010.

We encourage Australian and New Zealander Help authors and technical communicators to join an "expedition" to the WritersUA West Conference.

Coming Up:

ASTC Conference: Gold Coast - 12 to 13 October

One of the joys of being a technical communicator is that we never have the chance to get bored or become complacent about our knowledge. In our role, change is a constant. The ASTC annual conference offers a unique opportunity to keep up with those changes. The conference provides us with a quick and cost effective way to learn the latest techniques, terminology, tools and other relevant information. The venue is Novotel Surfers Paradise on Queensland's Gold Coast, from Friday 12 to Saturday 13 October. Registration for both days is $640 for ASTC members, $760 for non-members, or $310 for students.

International Interest

HyperWrite's work has often attracted international interest. HyperWrite's Tony Self has been presenting talks at the major WinWriters conference in Seattle for many years. An interesting Australian Unity case study was the topic for the 1998 session. More recently, Tony has presented topics including DITA for Help and Responsive Web Design.

When presenting talks outside Australia, HyperWrite's Tony Self tries to share a bit of the "lucky country" with the rest of the world. This sharing sometimes involves handing out samples of Vegemite to often unwilling participants!
