Lab Admins Unite!
LabMan is a low-key, inexpensive, and friendly conference intended for people who manage, supervise or maintain computing labs in higher education, K-12, or library facilities regardless of platform or technology they maintain. That said, it does indeed have long running and strong Mac presence.
This year it runs from June 6-7 at Purdue University in Indiana. More info at the conference page.
The LabMan 2006 Committee is pleased to announce the 7th annual Academic Lab Management Conference, a.k.a. LabMan 2006! You are invited to join your lab managing peers at Purdue University for this year’s LabMan, June 6th and 7th.
LabMan continues to be a low-key, inexpensive, and friendly conference intended for persons (people?) who manage, supervise or maintain computing labs in higher education, K-12, or library facilities. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet colleagues from other institutions who, like them, face various challenges in putting together resilient, robust, maintainable academic computing labs. From its inception, LabMan was designed to be platform independent – past, presentations at this conference focused on Windows, Macintosh, Netware, and Unix/Linux solutions. In addition to systems administration topics other presentations have examined lab design and layout, use of student club volenteers for tech support, and lab/equipment security measures.
We would like to invite you to consider joining us, not only as a participant but as a presenter. One of the aspecets of LabMan that makes it so valuable is that it is people like you presenting what they have done in environments like yours. Indeed, it could be YOU. Please take a moment to consider something innovative and exciting which you have done in the past year, or something which you feel could help institutions if they knew about it, that you would be willing to present at the conference. Suggested presentation topics
include, but are not limited to, the following:
Windows management Macintosh management UNIX/Linux management Security New technologies Policies Computer classrooms Student support
If you are interested in attending LabMan 2006 or, even better, if you
might be interested in presenting, we encourage you to register and/or
submit a proposal via the LabMan web site.
