Call for Papers - 15 June 2009
|BCS HQ, London
This Conference, jointly run by the British Computer Society Configuration Management Specialist Group (BCS CMSG) and the itSMF will be held on the 15 June 2009 at the BCS HQ in central London.
Last year's conference was very successful, and a review is available in IT Director.
The premier UK event on Change, Release and Configuration Management for ITIL and Service Management.
The main Conference objectives are to share experiences in how to best utilise essential resources in challenging economic times:
The Conference will bring together managers and practitioners working across the service lifecycle (which incorporates the application lifecycle) together in an open forum.
We are looking for presentations by practitioners to cover a wide variety of topics and encourage the cross fertilisation of ideas between practitioners, vendors and users of the CMDB/CMS solutions and tools.
The Conference and workshops will provide a unique opportunity to learn from practical experience and how to better communicate the benefits and value of managing your configurations.
The interactive sessions last year were very well received and the Decision Support tools were successful in leading to dynamic interaction, rich brainstorming and better discussion between users, practitioners and the vendor community.
BCS HQ at 5 Southampton St, in central London (just off the Strand).
The Conference programme will consist of plenary, parallel and interactive workshop sessions, panel discussions, vendor exhibition, and networking opportunities.
Submissions should be relevant to the Conference themes. Particularly interest will be shown to potential speakers sharing their own experiences.
