MacExpo 2004 begins this week, and some spaces are still available for Macworld's second-ever UK Macworld Conference at the show.

A two-hour digital art masterclass from Marvel comics artist, Jose Villarubia, is promised, while Photoshop guru Bruce Fraser is offering two sessions on colour management and camera RAW. Andy Ihnatko will also speak at the Conference.

Day one of the Conference in the 'Publishing' track will see an Adobe versus Quark face-off, hosted by Alistair Dabbs.

Quark's Shellie Hall will vie with Adobe's Chris Kitchener both working to prove the superiority of their chosen publishing packages. The Conference offers Masterclass sessions in both applications.

Four topic streams will be available during the Conference: Digital imaging, publishing, Mac OS X and servers, and audio-visual.

All attendees of the Macworld Conference receive free entry to MacExpo.
