HEUG EMEA 2014 - Call for Proposals Closes in 10 Days!

EMEA14

Call for Proposals Closes in 10 Days!

As temperatures rise and we all work hard to finish the academic year, please take a little time to consider presenting your best practices or future plans at the HEUG EMEA Conference 2014.

This conference has developed a reputation for the breadth and quality of presentations offered, and this year will be no different. Now is your chance to submit your proposals and ideas for sessions and to secure your place at the Conference.

We do not only want formal presentations – if you would like to lead a workshop or chair a panel discussion on a topic of interest to you then feel free to submit this as a proposal.

We would like sessions that showcase your innovative work - sharing experiences, lessons learned, future plans, new tools, new ideas and new approaches.

In order to give us the chance to put together the best possible programme we need all submissions by July 25 so please start thinking of your ideas now.

Remember, you don’t need your full session completed yet, we just need your session title and an outline of the content. It’s also important that we know who will be presenting the submission as proposals will be assessed on the combination of topic and presenter – if either of these change we may not be able to proceed with the session.

Also be aware that the primary speaker for every full session proposal accepted will receive a free registration to the HEUG EMEA 2014 conference! (Mini-session presenters are eligible for a half-price registration)

Please click here to submit your proposals in one of the following tracks:

Students
We’re looking for presentations around all aspects of Campus Solutions (Admissions, Records, Financial Aid, Student Financials or Academic Advisement). We would particularly welcome sessions on Program Enrolment, Activity Management, File Parser, AAWS, Research Tracking, Milestones, Graduation Tracking, Evaluation Management, Notification Framework or any of the new functionality. Have you any experiences or ideas you wish to share about how you are planning to take your system on that next step forward?

Technical
Following on from a number of very valuable and well received technical presentations over the past two years, the technical track has now been expanded to a full track. We would welcome your ideas on sessions covering any area of PeopleSoft or E-Business tools. These can include Security, User Experience, to encompass user interface and mobile solutions, PeopleTools, in particular experiences with PeopleSoft Test Framework and PeopleSoft Update Manager. We would also welcome input on successes you have had over the last year with the new tools Oracle are making available so that you can share these with the community, examples here would be PeopleTools Pivot Grids or Related Content

Finance
If you use e-Business Suite we want to hear from you and what you're doing now that you've more than likely made that leap to 12.x. Are you looking at, or have you implemented, additional modules such as iExpenses or iSupplier? Are you looking at complementary products to your e-Business Suite implementation to lever greater process improvements? We want to know what you are doing 'The Day After Tomorrow'. Your sessions can be presentation case studies, tips and tricks that you've found or even if you'd like to help run a panel discussion on a particular topic then we'd like to know.

General
Do you have a session which focuses on supporting strategies and activities that an institution manages - those things that support implementation, deployment and development of technical solutions - project management, upgrade and change management, user support, training, or reporting & BI? Or more generally, how have you improved the end user experience across systems? What type of usability enhancements have you made? We're interested in the success stories and tales about current challenges. These topics do suit a discussion style session - so if you have lots of questions and want answers from others, please consider volunteering to moderate a panel discussion.
