A Google Wave "Hackathon" is being held the the Australian National
University in Canberra on 8 August (registration essential):

This is a free technical event about Google Wave platform. I am going
along to see how it might be used for collaborative  education with a
learning management system: think social networking for a tutorial group
(I am talking about teaching Green ICT with a smartphone at Google
Sydney on Friday <http://slug.org.au/node/116>):

    This day is being organised by volunteers who are interested in
    Google Wave development and thought it would be useful to have a
    Google Wave developers day in Canberra. Please indicate if you are
    willing to assist with organising and running the day. Contact
    brenda at moon.net.au for more information.

    We will be providing WiFi internet access, but you will need to
    bring your own computer. Please have a look at the developer
    information on the Google Wave site
    (http://code.google.com/apis/wave/) as an introduction.
