SOCCNX11 Abstract submission extended – An extra chance!

As abstracts for Social Connections 11 in Chicago this June are pouring in we also get some rather frantic requests from people asking for just a little more time. With the end of quarter upon us some seem to struggle to hand in that abstract before the deadline. And as we really want to make sure we can provide you with the best possible selection of sessions and give everyone a chance to submit, we’ve decided to extend it.

So, if you haven’t yet submitted and thought you were too late… This is your chance – but last chance! – to submit for this great event. The deadline has been extended to Friday April 7th. Which will be the final deadline for this event and although we already have an amazing line up of sessions to choose from, we are still open for any great design or administration idea, your real life experiences with ‘going social collaboration’ or any other interesting topic around social collaboration, Watson work services or analytics. So don’t wait any longer and use these extra days to submit that awesome session!

Want to get a feel for the type of sessions we generally look for? Visit our agenda for our previous event in Toronto and to read more about two of our keynote speakers that have already been selected for this event check out this blog. We look forward to seeing your session!

Social Connections
Although IBM Connections has been in the marketplace since 2007 it is still a relatively new product by IBM/Lotus standards. The larger LUGs (Lotus User Groups – such as UKLUG and ILUG) tend to focus on traditional Lotus technologies – Notes, Domino, a little Sametime and TDI with lots of the newer XPages thrown in the mix. The WUGs (WebSphere User Groups) tend to concentrate on core WebSphere technologies such as the Application Server, Portal and Process Server. In addition, these events can be very technical in nature. Therefore we feel there is a definite space for a Connections user group with a strong focus on social collaboration technology, aimed at both existing and prospective customers and partners, and at individuals with both business and technical perspectives. We meet twice annually, in late Spring/early Summer and again in late Autumn/Fall, and from 2015 onwards we will be splitting the events between the USA and Europe. In addition, through the use of these great social tools, we aim to keep a dynamic and lively online community going all-year round! The events will be social in nature, with a strong desire for real face-to-face networking and knowledge sharing as well as delivery of useful content.
