SIGUCCS 2017

See AppsAnywhere in action at SIGUCCS 2017 Annual Conference, where higher education IT professionals from across the USA will be meeting to connect and discover.

Software2 are headed to Seattle, Washington in October to network and connect with Higher Education IT Professionals from across the US and around the world.

This year we're Platinum Sponsor for the event, which means we'll be more involved than ever in the wide range of events and talks that will take place in 2017, not to mention the social events...

Last year we set off for Denver, Colorado where we met with some impressive individuals, and even more impressive companies who care as much about Higher Education as we do, so this year we're excited to see some familiar faces and connecting with new ones.

SIGUCCS is known for its 'work hard play hard' spirit, and as usual we'll be getting stuck into everything this event and city has to offer.

We'll be keeping our social media channels up to date on the latest news and events, so you never miss a moment. Stay tuned for the ins and outs of SIGUCCS 2017, can’t wait to see you there!

About SIGUCCS

SIGUCCS is an Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Special Interest Group on University and College Computing Services. SIGUCCS conference events and activities focus on the issues surrounding the support, delivery, and management of college and university information technology services. The conference format provides members and those in the field of college and university IT support a wide variety of learning and professional development opportunities.

Sessions take a variety of formats, offering you an opportunity for various kinds of learning and networking.

  • Presentation – standard presentation format with opportunity for question and answer. Presentations are 60 or 90 minutes in length.
  • Panel – these sessions focus around a topic of interest; presenters offer insight and lead discussion around that topic. Panels typically are 90 minute sessions.
  • Poster – an open forum where multiple topics are presented in poster format and authors are available to answer questions in a one-on-one setting.
  • Lightning Talks – This is a form of group presentation where each member of a small group (approximately 5) is allocated 7 minutes to make a concise presentation on a specific, yet unrelated, topic. Two minutes of Q&A follows each presenter with an additional 15 minutes for questions directed to any presenters in the group at the end of the session. This is an opportunity for new attendees to take the first step to participate in a professional conference and gain valuable experience presenting as well as an option for seasoned attendees presenting at the conference to share quick tips and useful information without compiling a second paper.
  • Networking Events (Birds of a Feather) – informal networking opportunities based on IT topics, offering you the opportunity to meet people using similar technologies or facing similar issues on their campuses.
