Dear Colleague:

The JA-SIG Spring 2008 Conference will be held at the end of April this 
year. We have extended invitations to our many colleagues in higher 
education community source to share in the event, and we're excited to 
present a first-time, jointly planned conference.  

Whatever your project affiliation, become an active part of this 
conference by submitting proposals for presentations, BOF (Birds Of a 
Feather) sessions, and Poster Sessions using the link at the bottom of 
this message.  Topics that span projects are particularly welcome!

We welcome your contributions in the following areas:

    * *Community Source Management/Governance:  *What are best practices
      for managing community source projects or their deployments on
      campus? For encouraging adoption? For gaining acceptance and
      campus buy-in? For engaging your community in the processes?
      Presentations for managers, team leaders, executives, planners and
    * *Design and Development:  *For developers, architects, UX
      designers, testers. Presentations for people who build community
      source products, use them as a development framework or want to
      learn more about doing so. These are technical topics, tips and

    * *Deployment and Integration:  *Presentations for people who need
      to make applications work on campus: developers, content

      to highlight work that integrates community source projects within
      the enterprise infrastructure and with each other.
