LavaCon was founded in 2002 to educate managers and team leaders in how to develop technical communication projects. LavaCon is a gathering place for content strategists, content engineers, documentation managers, and other content professionals. It is a unique opportunity to share with peers best practices and lessons learned (both what worked and what didn’t).

LavaCon's mission is to help organizations increase revenue and decrease costs by solving content-related business problems. The program has expanded over the years to include sessions on project management, content strategy, social media, mobile devices, and more.

The conference was originally held in Hawaii (hence the name) so attendees could get away from back-to-back deadlines and de-stress long enough to take care of corporate and professional development. The first European event, LavaCon 2016 Dublin, will be held 5-7 June 2016 at the Trinity College Conference Center near the Temple Bar area of Dublin. See the Call for Speakers page for more information.

LavaCon USA will be held 26-29 October 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Check soon for details!
