Now open! Call for proposals for 2012 Jasig-Sakai Conference
2012 Call for Proposals Now
Open -- Deadline March 18
Share your successes at the inaugural Jasig-Sakai conference!
Something special is happening in Atlanta, June 10-15. Jasig and Sakai, two of the pioneers of open source software in higher education, are pooling resources to provide a better home for innovation. The Jasig-Sakai Conference will showcase the adoption and growth of software to support advances in learning, teaching and research, together with the infrastructure that enables it.
Come to learn about – and share your experience with – the Sakai Collaboration and Learning Environment to support a variety of approaches to teaching and learning; uPortal to present a unified view of campus services; CAS to offer single sign-on to multiple online resources; or Bedework to deliver a robust calendaring solution. Engage with the dreamers and designers of uMobile, a framework for innovative mobile solutions. See the latest release and contribute to the vision of the Sakai Open Academic Environment, a next-generation approach to promote effective learning, teaching and research online. Share your successes on, and ask your peers about, raising campus awareness and ultimately adoption of open initiatives through "The 2-3-98 Project."
We invite you to submit a proposal to this year's conference. Share your great work with the community and spark new developments through a track presentation, technology demonstration, or birds of a feather event. The deadline for proposals is Sunday, March 18, 2012.
Want to see or hear about a specific subject at the conference? Submit topic ideas to the program committee.
Above all, the Atlanta conference is a global networking point for practitioners. There will be opportunities in and around the conference program, for meeting, sharing and learning from others in our global community. Join us in growing community and growing possibilities!
Submission Deadline is March
We look forward to your proposal!
