UCCSC 2015 at UC Riverside & Call for Session Proposals, August 16-18

May 4, 2015

Norm Cheng, UC Berkeley, UCCSC 2015 Ambassador


Save the Date for UCCSC!

As UC Berkeley's UCCSC Ambassador, I am announcing that UC Riverside will host the 2015 University of California Computing Services Conference (UCCSC). The conference will be held at the Highlander University Building (HUB) on August 16 - 18, 2015. The conference is open to IT professionals of all levels. Mark your calendars now, so that you won’t miss this opportunity! This year's theme is entitled "In a Cloud of Our Own” and represents 33 years since the first conference at UC Santa Cruz in 1982.

Call for Session Proposals

This announcement is also the initial call for Session Proposals. The UC Riverside (UCR) UCCSC conference committee invites sessions to highlight successful IT-related initiatives across campuses, as well as collaborations within campuses at departmental, collegiate, and administrative levels. Presentations can fall and span into several tracks which include Web applications, research & data technologies, repository services, IT service management, instructional design, cloud computing and other innovative efforts.

You will need to create an account on the conference website in order to submit your proposals. This registration link is for proposal submissions only and does not register you for the conference. The deadline to submit your proposals is June 5, 2015 and all entrants will be notified in early July 2015.

Please note that a primary presenter of an accepted session will have her/his registration fee waived.

Registration, Accommodations & Transportation Information

Registration: The UCR UCCSC team intends to keep registration fees as low as possible with an approximate cost of $250 per attendee. Registration information details will be posted in early May 2015.

Accommodations & Transportation: The UCR UCSCS team has also posted on the website, available rooms at the Mission Inn Hotel and Spa, Downtown Marriott and Hyatt Place. All hotels can be booked with a special UCR rate code and are located in downtown Riverside, within walking distance from each other. Shuttles will be provided to and from the UCR campus at these hotels.


This annual conference began as a grassroots effort by UC campuses to share knowledge and information. Open to IT professionals throughout the UC campuses, colleagues have met each summer since 1982 to discuss common topics such as providing and supporting information technology services at the University of California. In addition to learning from the subject matter experts in the seminars, attendees will have opportunities to network with their peers from other campuses, to enrich their knowledge of IT operations, to learn about new technologies within the UC system. Traditionally, a different UC campus rotates hosting the UCCSC each summer.

UCCSC is the venue at which winners of each year's Larry L. Sautter Award for Innovation in Information Technology have been announced since the award was established in 2000.
