Yes, that’s right, I’m already talking about next year’s conference.
To avoid problems with obtaining a room block in the hotel we’ve gone ahead and reserved Friday and Saturday 15 & 16 MAR, 2013. Go ahead, put it on your calendar, you know you want to.
Please spread the word!
||March 8th, 2012
||EE1 Building (Electrical Engineering)

||Roundtable Discussion on System Admin Topics
Some questions to get the discussion going are:

- What are your plans/ideas for handling the proliferation of mobile devices that need access to your network?
- What is better - bring your own device (BYOD) or company provided device (CPD)?
- How do you handle authentication when many of the core IT services are being outsourced to external providers?
- How are you taking advantage of social technologies in your workplace?
- What are the 3 major changes you have see in IT in the last 5 years?
- What are the best ways to find new IT employees?
- Do you have information overload? If so, how are you dealing with it?
