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:

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
providers, team leaders, evangelists. In particular, we would like
to highlight work that integrates community source projects within
the enterprise infrastructure and with each other.
* *Multiple Audiences: *Presentations that span multiple projects
or audience types. Community source project introductions and
