Provisioning and deprovisioningTom BartonRL "Bob" Morgan, Chuck PowellArchitectures & techniques for provisioning and deprovisioning services and access to them by end users.

Document imaging/management and ePortfoliosSharif NijimAs administrative student files go paperless, what are the implications for ePortfolio systems? If kept separate, where should they overlap? Post-graduate access and archive considerationseitherUMinn, CMU ND, VT PrincetonNYU51
Web Content Management SystemsSerge GoldsteinAs more and more of our applications move to the web, the institutional enterprise WCMS becomes an ever more important part of our software infra-structure. Is there a "Blackboard" and a "Moodle" of WCMS systems? How important is it for institutions to consolidate on a single WCMS? What are people using for their institution home page and departmental web pages? And how much money are we and our departments spending to build institutional web pages (and can consolidation save some of that money)?Long WorkshopPrinceton10
IPv4 Countdown to IPv6, DNSSEC, and other brave new networking worldsRex PruessErvIPv4 address exhaustion is expected to occur on 09-09-2011. (Maybe this topic should be called IPv6 - Asbed) Network and application-level impacts. Also, with DNSSEC, signed roots, and other changes underway, is it perhaps time to remind ourselves how DNS is or should be managed on campus?Iowa, Princeton Duke UCSD USC VT06
Virtual Desktop InfrastructureMin YaoMark McCahill Chuck PowellWith the changing IT landscape moving towards client mobility and with the pressure of achieving cost/operational efficiency, virtual desktop offers the potential of (1) delaying desktop/laptop purchases to save money, (2) reducing the workload for desktop support, and (3) enhancing desktop security by the ease of monitoring and applying software patches.workshopYale, UCSD, UMinn Duke, Colorado UMich, Brown, Princeton UVa Harvard Georgetown Cornell Iowa130
Global IT Services & EnvironmentsKitty BridgesWith several of us engaged in global campuses and programs, what have we learned about networking, privacy, telepresence and video conferencing, classroom set-up, service provisioning, etc.WorkshopNYU, PennStateDuke21
SOA Revisited - where are we, governance, funding changes from projects to a rich infrastructureJim PhelpsService Oriented Architecture is maturing on many of our campuses. We are rolling out the technologies (Web Services, ESBs) and running into issues around governance, change management, funding structures. Where are we and what issues are preventing us from moving forward more efficiently?eitherMIT10
AccessibilityGreg JacksonBrendan GuentherPerfect compliance with 508 requirements is impossible, ignoring them is stupid and risky, and outside entitities are using us as pawns. What's the optimal best practice?Short Workshop (or either?)

Disaster RecoveryAnita NikolichIs it possible to form some sort of private cloud amongst schools who have similar DR/BCP needs?workshopWisconsin UWash20
SaaS IntegrationsKitty BridgesChuck PowellHow can we easily support SaaS integrations into our environments? How do we move data around, where do we use web services, etc., etc.? Is it possible to develop core capabilities that will simplify the adoption of SaaS/Cloud? (merge with Provisioning? -RL"Bob")workshopWisconsin UCSF Stanford CMU UWash Yale UVa MichState Georgetown USC Cornell, Colorado120
SaaS for HE Admin AppsAsbedMany schools are busy integrating Workday, others have signed PaaS contracts with PeopleSoft/Oracle, others are doing Kuali, which itself may eventually have cloud providers in its own ecosystem.I'm suggesting we dedicate and entire CSG meeting to this. Maybe we can stay with the Workshop format, and we deep-dive into an aspect of the subject matter, such as contracts, integration, functionality, Identity and Access Mgmt, etc.Whole CSG or Long WorkshopUSC10

Balancing Central vs Distributed ServicesBill WrobleskiWhat models work the best to balance central efficiencies with local value-add services? What techniques have resulted in departments dedicating more effort to mission-specific services and reducing the time the spend delivering commodity services (with less mission specific value)? What Central/Distributed models best leverage our decentralized organizations with the efficiencies of shared infrastructure and services?Short or long workshopIowa UMichYale, UMinn ND, Colorado Georgetown Cornell26

On-Ramps to Shared Research ResourcesCharles AntonelliWith many of us deploying and operating campus shared cyberinfrastructure, what are common charging models, transition paths to national CI resources e.g. XSEDE, strategies for standing up research consulting services, migrating researchers to the cloud (Amazon EC2, Google Apps). What are challenges and opportunities in scaling out these activities?00
