Accepting Abstracts to Present at C3UG

Abstract submission is open for the next Cross Canada Collaboration User Group. The deadline is Friday, October 21. The event is on Thursday, November 17.

We have presentation time slots of 45, 30, and 15 minutes, and are inviting 5 minute lightning talks too. We are looking to cram as much good content into 4 hours as we can. Our preference is to have each speaker be at one of our live locations but we will also consider online presentations too.

We have tracks for Development and Infrastructure, Administration, Customer Case Studies and solutions, and IBM Technology. We expect to have a session that highlights announcements from World of Watson.

You can find more information and the abstract submission form at our web site, powered by Domino and OpenNTF.

About

I am an IT professional with over 20 years of experience. For much of that time I have worked with IBM Lotus Notes and Domino, helping organizations take full advantage of the tool for building workflow collaboration solutions. I have ITIL certification and a background in project management as well. Recently I have invested in how mobile devices may be used to extend business applications outside the office, and have also been learning how to add social components to traditional business applications. Away from work, I have three daughters and recently celebrated my 20th wedding anniversary with my wife in Hawaii. I coach hockey, cycle, and love growing garlic and then finding new ways to use it. I added a section of herbs to my garden last year and was very happy with the result. I ride my bike each year with my wife in the Ride to Conquer Cancer to raise money for research in childhood cancers, particularly brain tumours. Our youngest daughter lost her battle with a brain tumour in 2008 and through this ride we hope to help find a way to prevent other families from experiencing what we went through and continue to live with. If I have any spare time, I like to travel, so you may see the odd photo from our family adventures here too.
