General schedule: The conference will extend over two days, on Tuesday, June 15, and Wednesday, June 16, 2021. Instructional computing labs and lectures are scheduled for both days. A general welcome session will be held Tuesday. All sponsors (financial and instructional) will have an opportunity to informally meet conference attendees to showcase their technology offerings.
Attendees: The use of technology and security remains a high priority across the University of California. We expect approximately 500 system administrators and unit managers from UC Davis and the other UC campuses and medical centers to register and attend this conference. Invited attendees also include guests from other higher education locations and California state agencies. The attendees represent the technical leads for many information technology units, and are typically responsible for making technology and training decisions. Many are leading-edge technology adopters. Administrative unit managers are typically responsible for budgetary approval.
Concurrent session tracks: Conference tracks will emphasize sessions that share information about technology and security developments that are innovative and/or benefit operational workloads. Sessions will include technical presentations and hands-on labs focusing on administration fundamentals, and/or improving and maintaining security, for networking, operating systems, applications, workstations, and mobile devices. Instructional labs will last two hours; lectures will run one or two hours.
Fees: Registration is complimentary this year for all participants, thanks to our generous sponsors.
