Seminar suggestions for the JA-SIG Spring 2008 Conference

Hi Barbara,
    I think running the UCamp as a scheduled seminar or seminar pair is 
a good idea (it occurred to me too).  The only question is whether the 
extra fee would be seen as a barrier to some.    Would you be running 
it?  Would you have co-presenters/leaders?

Can you supply me with the description information so I can put it in as 
a candidate?

   1. Title - a phrase or one sentence summary
   2. Description - approximately 4 - 5 sentences describing what a
      participant can expect would expect to hear about
   3. Length - whether you expect the session to be a half-day or
      full-day seminar
   4. Pre or Post - whether you would rather see the seminar on Sunday
      (pre-conference) or on Wednesday (post-conference)
   5. Proposed presenter

Thanks,
Paul
