ALL STAFF AT UCSD (including UCSD Medical Center)

SUBJECT:    Sharecase 2008 - March 26, 2008

The growth and success of UC San Diego depend upon staff who support the research, teaching, clinical, and community activities of the campus. New tools and technology -- developed by talented staff on campus -- help sustain the excellence that UC San Diego has achieved.

Sharecase ( http://sharecase.ucsd.edu ) is returning March 26 to the Price Center with presentations and exhibits highlighting the newest technology developments for staff and faculty. I am pleased to announce that this day-long event will start with a special keynote address from Qualcomm founder and former CEO Dr. Irwin Jacobs. As in prior years, the event will include live demonstrations of exciting new tools and resources that will help make your jobs easier. Here are a few:

* A New Marketplace

* Academic Personnel Online

* Specialty Sessions for Campus Researchers/PIs

* Advances in the Campus E-mail Environment

* Fund Management Tools

* Using New Media: Facebook, Blogs, and RSS

* New Tools for Travel

* Developments in Network Security

Visit the Sharecase 2008 Web site at http://sharecase.ucsd.edu to review over 60 planned presentations. On March 26th, join us in the Price Center Grand Ballroom for demonstrations and great ideas from vendors and campus service providers, along with giveaways and a free lunch for registered attendees. Sharecase continues its tropical tradition, so be sure to come dressed in your favorite aloha shirt.

I encourage supervisors to release staff to attend job-related presentations as work permits. This is a wonderful development opportunity for attendees to obtain information on a variety of topics.

Please register at http://sharecase.ucsd.edu/registration so we can plan appropriately for your visit.
