I'm not quite sure what MAX will stand for now that there is no Macromedia, but Adobe has announced the conference will be taking place this year and in Las Vegas no less. Sweet, even if I do get to go (baby is due 2 weeks before MAX), I'll surely get nothing done in a party town like Vegas.
Before you go hitting up the Max info page, Adobe has not updated it to reflect the details for 2006. I only know about this through Ben Forta's blog and the Adobe Community Expert lists. The dates for the conference are October 22 - 26. I'll post more details as they are available.
