SIGUCCS is the 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. Over 60 years of service to the higher education community have seen IT services expand into many areas of higher education operations. The conference format provides a wide variety of learning and professional development opportunities to those in the field of college and university IT support as well as similar fields as technology intersects with many aspects of higher education.
Sessions will 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 minutes in length.
- Panel – these sessions focus around a topic of interest; presenters offer insight and facilitate discussion around that topic. Panels typically are 60 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 presentation where multiple (approximately 5) presenters have 7 minutes to share a concise presentation on a specific 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. The presentations may not have a specific topic tying them all together. This type of presentation 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.
