How do I see the full schedule and access conference sessions?

Conference registration is required, and you must have a Sched account that has been invited to the 2022 UNC CAUSE Conference event (occurs after you individually register for conference). Full session details are limited to conference registrants.

Registered late? We’ll continue to add registrants to Sched as quickly as possible.

What apps do I need for the conference?

We will use these apps for 2022 UNC CAUSE:

  1. Sched: A Sched account is required to view full schedule details. You must register for the conference to be invited to the Sched conference event.  Note: New conference registrants will be added to Sched after the schedule is made available in late summer/early fall. Thank you for your patience as this is a manual process.
  2. Slack: Connect with UNC CAUSE attendees through conversations on Slack! Create an account with your @edu email account and you can join our Slack space!

I would still like to interact virtually with UNC CAUSE. How can I connect with colleagues this year?

We have decided to return back to our full in-person event for this year, but don’t worry! There are multiple ways to connect with IT colleagues across the UNC System for UNC CAUSE throughout the year.

  1. Engage in conversation on Slack and join the #2022-conference Slack channel with your @edu email account.
  2. Join the #2022-unconference Slack channel to find and schedule times to meet with UNC CAUSE attendees who share your interests!
  3. Join SIGs that interest you! Different SIGs will meet throughout the conference but are also doing things throughout the year, check out their pages and Slack channels for more information!

What is a SIG?

SIGs is short for Special Interest Groups. These groups are comprised of individuals from UNC CAUSE member institutions that share a common interest around a topic or technology that is prevalent across institutions. See UNC CAUSE SIGs. Most SIGs will meet at the conference so check out the schedule when that is available to see when each SIG will meet!

Will there be UnConference sessions?

We invite you to join the #2022-unconference Slack channel to discuss topics. Here you can find other UNC CAUSE attendees with shared interests to discuss topics during or even after the conference. Please note these slots are available on a first come, first serve basis during the conference in the room dedicated to UnConference.

An unconference is a participant-driven meeting based on a topic that they would like to talk about with their peers. There is no set presentation, and unconference attendees are welcome to talk freely about the suggested topic.
