Conference Overview


Please join us in beautiful Monterey, California for CSMS 2003.  The 30th annual Computer Services Management Symposium of ACM's Special Interest Group on University and College Computing Services will be held at the Doubletree Hotel, March 30 – April 1.  On this 30th anniversary of the CSMS conference two important changes are occurring.  For the first time in many years, CSMS will have speakers to focus the popular facilitated discussion format of the sessions.  Second, the long-standing location has changed.  You will find new things to do and new sights to see as you join old friends and meet new friends in Monterey at CSMS 2003!


SIGUCCS Computer Services Management Symposium is unique.  The blend of CIOs, Directors, Managers, and IT leaders from large universities to small colleges brings together a broad range of ideas, viewpoints, problems, and solutions.  Couple this with the unique format of the Symposium – focused, facilitated discussion sessions along with outstanding daily keynote speakers – and you get a conference, for anyone in IT leadership, that provides an opportunity not found elsewhere.  CSMS is large enough to bring together diverse views that will challenge your thoughts, but small enough to enable real discourse toward new solutions.  Whether a new manager or a veteran CIO, you will come away from CSMS 2003 with new thoughts and new ideas.


“Rooted in Experience; Embracing the Future”, the theme of this year's Symposium, challenges us to use our experience as a foundation for selecting and making the technology changes that our institutions need.  With your participation we can make this 30th Annual SIGUCCS Computer Services Management Symposium the finest yet.
