AUGIWorld August 2014 Issue Released!

AUGIWorld August 2014
One would think successful collaboration among team members would be virtually effortless. Really, with all the technology available these days, how hard could it be for professionals, even those who aren't housed in the same office, to work together and end up with anything less than a perfectly executed project?

The truth is that collaboration, like anything else in business, requires solid planning. In the August issue, AUGIWorld authors provide sage advice about how to collaborate effectively. In "All Together Now," Bill Campbell discusses the role of BIM in collaboration.

Josh Carney reveals that the tools needed for collaboration were given to us at an early age in his article, "Play Nice in the Sandbox."

CAD Manager Mark Kiker presents the first half of a two-part article about "Keys to Collaboration."

There's much more on collaboration and other topics in this issue.

RTC Europe 2014

Dublin, Ireland
Thursday 30 October – Saturday 1 November 2014

Building on the success of the 2014 Australasian and North American events, RTC comes back for its second year in Europe, with the venue set in the beautiful Dublin Castle, at the centre of a truly unique capital.

Dublin

RTC is an event covering Building Information Modelling in all its aspects, with a core focus on workflows centred on Autodesk Revit, as well as complementary and alternative applications. This is a unique ‘for users, by users’ event, where experts and leaders in the field of BIM share their knowledge and experience, express their passion and exchange their insights.

As an independently-run conference created by industry professionals like you, we strive to produce the best BIM event you’ll get to each year. RTC focuses on the best use of the best tools, techniques and processes - not just for the technical experts, but for business leaders as well, with an entire stream of sessions dedicated to business leadership. We are also committed to cross-discipline and cross-sector engagement, with a regular attendee base from all design disciplines, construction, building owners, developers, facility management, quantity surveying, project management and academia.

This year’s program in Dublin boasts a rapidly expanding cohort of European experts including returning speakers such as Pierre Roscelli, Håvard Vasshaug and Graham Stewart, as well as those new to the roster, such as Rebecca de Cicco, Mattias Sahlberg, and David Philp. More classes for contractors, more classes on API and third party tools, more of everything! This year’s event runs for 3 days, hosts 70 classes, and spends Friday night at the Guinness Factory! This year we also introduce RTC Labs to the European event. An opportunity to work hands-on in a class led by some of the top Revit gurus worldwide, these classes always fill up fast (only 40 places per session) so make sure you take the opportunity to work on projects under the tutelage of great teachers like Steve Shell, Brian Mackey and Julian Benoit.

We want you to learn and to be inspired, and to inspire others to become better. Many of our past attendees have benefited from strong career advancement—we’d like to think it’s because they’re the people we attract to our events, and because we facilitate some part of their growth as industry professionals. There is a reason why over 90% of past delegates want to come back!
