Dear DSpace community,

The schedule is now posted for the upcoming JASIG open source software conference which will feature DSpace 1.5 training, presentations and panels.  There are technical tracks as well as deployment tracks that cover not only DSpace, but open source software programming and deployment in general.  I think this is really going to be a great conference and a chance to network with other java developers and implementors of open source solutions in higher ed.  Software projects represented are DSpace, Sakai, UPortal, CAS, Kuali, Internet2 and Fedora.

Please join us,
Michele Kimpton
