The JA-SIG Conference Planning Committee is pleased to announce the
Spring 2009 Conference to be held March 1-4 in Dallas, Texas.
Following the great success of last year's conference, we are partnering
with our open source community colleagues to create a forum for
collaboration and learning. Join your colleagues from Bedework, CAS,
DSpace, Fedora, Fluid, Internet2, Kuali, Sakai, uPortal and other open
source projects, and submit proposals for a pre-conference seminar,
presentation, kiosk, BOF or poster session!
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 strategists.
* *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 techniques, how-to's.
* *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 overviews.
Half-day Supplementary Seminars will be held in the morning and
afternoon on Sunday, March 1st as well as on Wednesday (March 4th)
Proposals may be entered on the JA-SIG Conference Website. Proposals
require a Title, an Abstract (under 500 words), a Presenter Profile, and
some basic affiliation information. This year we are also asking
proposal submitters to select tags that best describe their proposals
from a list of recommended tags <http://www.ja-sig.org/wiki/x/CAAnAQ>.
