Thanks to Blitz for posting that the AGDC schedule is (partially) up.. (AGDC usually gives us updates on Sumea, but I think they may have forgotten this year [;)]).
Some interesting talks this year. I see Jacana has a talk about women in development, Gaffer is talking about physics and animation in Tribes: Vengeance. The Making of "Call of Duty" session is something I'd love to attend - that game was fantastic.
Some great talks from the art side of things, with Garth Midgley from Atari Melbourne House doing a talk about art in Transformers (you may have been the lucky 30 or so to have seen his tutorial on normal mapping at Free Play). Steve Stamatiadis is talking about the art in TY2, David King is doing a talk as well, and that 10 Essential Skills for Budding Games Artists session sounds interesting..
