Today marks the culmination of 9 months of effort to bring you a conference that will help you learn new techniques, explore new technologies, learn about the latest trends, make new business connections, and quite simply, expand your professional mind.

This year Autodesk has worked hard to make registration easier by uniting the AU online universe with the rest of Autodesk. Now you’ll use your Autodesk account (Autodesk ID) to register for the event. If you don’t have an account, no worries. You can easily create one when you register. Read the FAQ to learn more.

Autodesk has updated its website to help you find all of the preconference events scheduled for Monday, the classes and hands-on labs that might interest you, and other activities that are taking place during the conference.

And if your focus is product design and manufacturing, this year is particularly special. You’ll want to check out the Product Design & Manufacturing page to see all that we have planned for you.

Autodesk has also gathered all of the activities and class highlights for other industries into focused pages for AEC, Infrastructure, and Oil & Gas, Media & Entertainment, and Education.

AU classes fill quickly—don't miss out!  Sign up early (by October 20) and save up to $500 too.

AUGI at Autodesk University 2012

AUGI has had a large role at Autodesk University since the beginning because the event actually grew out of a meeting of users that was held by NAAUG (the AUGI precurser).  So AU is a big deal to AUGI each year.
